About this place

Yunnan is a vast province.  Train travel therefore requires much more time than air travel, and is also often even slower than long distance buses.  However, train travel is the more comfortable option for over-land travelers that are interested in a glimpse of the beautiful scenery that Yunnan Province is famous for.  Kunming has two main railway stations.
