Which campus do you need to go to? Yuhua Campus or Lianhua Campus? If for Yuhua Campus in Chenggong district, it is closer to Kunming South Station. If for Lianhua Campus, it is closer to Kunming Station, the main station.

Well, there is free wifi offered based on the news I read. However, from my experience on other trains, you need to use it under support of Wechat!

Answered by Katrina from USA | Dec. 26, 2018 17:16

It is indeed a long distance trip, maybe more than 30km. You can take metro line 1 (the branch line) to Chunrongjie first and then change to line 1, the main line to Huanchengnanlu. Then change to line 2 there and get off at Chuanxingulou, exit D. Finally, you need to walk about 200m to east direction and take bus No. 95 (bus 119 and k14 can also work) to Qingyunjie bus stop. The hostel is about 200m in distance.

Offical answer: Generally, bikes are not allowed onboard. Passengers can use the consignment or delivery service to transport your bike to the destination. If you insist, you will need to dismantle and box the bicycle to take it onboard as a regular piece of luggage.
