Forums > Travel Yunnan > Travel Lijiang to Dali

Hey Johanna,

Train from Lijiang to Dali is running! It cannot stop carrying over 14,000,000 passengers per year... too valuable. (FYI, in time, it will be extended to Shangri-La (Zhongdian) of Yunnan)

Perhaps the stories are related to the NEW Lijiang Train Station on the southwest side wp.me/p1xb5m-aC as of August something 2011, while changing the previous station on the east side (now a cargo line). Lijiang to Dali is less than a two-hour transit (not incl waiting time, etc.) with a few trips during the day. (As you are coming during National Week, make sure to buy your train tickets early)

Haven't been to Linden Center (Dali).
Lijiang has several places that are exceptional, depending on what you want. There are hundreds of small cheap "hostels" 客栈 all around, but you can work your way up to something like Pullman Lijiang or Banyan.

If you are in Lijiang longer, check out the "Liming Lisu County" (Chinese for convenience 黎明村)

Cheers,
NP

Hey! Found some. If you want an ice rink for hockey and the sorts, it's at Hongta Ice Rink. It's relatively far from Kunming, and pricey too (almost north american priced!), but gives a great view of Dianchi Lake.

ALTERNATIVELY, there IS an ice rink in downtown Kunming. This is largely unknown and quiet, as there's too many things going on. Know the Me & City apparel store? Follow the street to the left of it and you'll eventually see a McDonalds. Walk further on to the "B" building, and you'd have to go to the top floor to find the ice rink! 冰馆, it's all in Chinese, so you'll have to use you're chinese to navigate if lost (again, many do not know)

=)

It's a beautiful fun read of real an interesting group of people (before the influence of capitalists). Take your time to Lijiang and the tribal customs and activities before 'it was ruined"... I'm surprised Peter didn't end up dead from all the conspiracies and the finger-pointing he had to deal with. Good thing he's also an intelligent doctor.
