Question:We shall be in Yunnan from 9th to 18th June 2010, 13 adults. Pls quote us a ground tour of Kunming/Dali/Lijiang & Shangri-La. On the return journey, it will be partially land + an air-flight from Lijiang to Kunming. The Yunnan tour will be for 10 days/ 9 nights. At the moment, we have 13 pax but perhaps we will be able to get another 3 or 4 more persons to join our group. Thank you. Regards, Mary

Answer:Hi, again! We are expecting 3 or 4 more friends to join us on this proposed trip to Yunnan. Our tour will cover the Flying Temple and Meili Snow Mountain if possible. Transportation: From Kunming to Dali, Shangri La to Kunming by air; Dali/Lijiang/Shangri La by coach. If we take the train from Dali to Lijiang, will we miss out on any tourist attractions along the way? Which way is cheaper? Your advice is much appreciated.
