By Long-distance Bus
How to get there
The best way to reach Yunnanyi is from the ancient town of Dali or from Xiaguan (aka Dali city).
From Xiaguan Southwest station (西南客运站), take a bus to Xiangyun (祥云). There is a bus every 15 minutes and the ride to Xiangyun takes 30 to 40 minutes.
Once in Xiangyun, you will have to transfer to the local bus station (城乡客运站 – Cheng hsiang ke yun djan). Take a tuk – tuk, it will cost 5 or 6 RMB per person.
At the local bus station, you can take either a green mini van for 8 RMB or a regular small bus that heads to Xiazhuang Township (下庄镇). Tell the driver you get off at Yunnayi (云南驿). It takes around 30 minutes on the countryside road. The driver will let you off on the side of the road, just walk straight and you will see the gates of the village.
On the way back, just wait by the side of the road for a bus to come. They all go to Xiangyun. You will probably see the characters “县城” on the bus, which means county seat.
For people who want to get to their destination as quickly as possible, taxis are wise choice. Generally, the starting fare is CNY5, and CNY1.4 will be charged for each kilometer.
