1. Hekou is a national first-grade port in the southeast end of Honghe bordered by Vietnam. Kunming-Hekou Railway runs through Honghe Prefecture, but it is a narrow-gauge railway. The carriages are narrower than ordinary ones. Traveling by bus will save several hours over making the trip by train.
2. Kunming is about 4 hours' drive to Honghe and 3.5 hours to Jianshui County. Buses to Honghe can be easily found in Yunnan Tourist Passenger Transport Bus Station in Minhang Lu of Kunming. Regular buses serve well among counties and cities of the prefecture. Local villagers, however, would usually thumb lifts from wagon drivers.
3. For self-reliant tourists, renting a vehicle is a better choice while visiting Honghe.
