    Is it possible to drive with a private taxi from Kunming to Yuangyang?
    If yes, whuat is the cost for two passengers?
    We have to reserve in advance or we can get it while staing in Kunming?
    Thank you

    Dear Lualdo Giuseppina,

    As far as I know, the local taxi drivers in Kunming are reluctant to go to Yuanyang since it is beyond the city of Kunming. They are not willing to return empty unless you pay more for your single trip. If you insist in taxiing to Yuanyuang, you need to negotiate with your taxi driver for the final taxi fare. We don’t know the market price.

    In addition, people would take the long-distance bus.

    Timetable for the buses:
    Kunming South Bus Station: Bus No. 0300 Starting from Kunming at 10:20 Bus fare 139 yuan
    Bus No. 0304 Starting from Kunming at 12:30 Bus fare 139 yuan
    Bus No. 0303 Starting from Kunming at 19:30 Bus fare 139 yuan

    The above is only for your reference!

    -. do they go by meters or I need negotiate the fare?
    -. how much is reasonable rate?
    -. how long will it take?

    Dear Sung Lee,

    About 45-minute taxi drive, taxi fare at approx. 145 yuan. It is heard that there still exist negotiated prices among some of the local taxi drivers who may ask for 180 yuan.

    Have a good luck!
