Lijiang Train Schedule

Located in Shangji Village of Yulong Naxi Autonomous County, Lijiang Railway Station is about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Lijiang Old Town. As a major station along Kunming - Lijiang and Qujing-Kunming-Lijiang railways, Lijiang Railway Station only operates normal trains to/from Kunming, Dali, Qujing and other nearby cities.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Recently China Railway Company is making schedule adjustment including this trip. Therefore, the trains are not available for sale at this time since July 9. You may check the schedule again later in July. Once the tickets released for sale, we will updated information on our website too. Sorry for the inconvenience.

No direct train or flight between Lijiang and Qingdao. I suggest you take a flight from Lijiang to Kunming, then Kunming to Qingdao. Train will take much more time.

Is there any idea how to go from Lijiang Station to the Old Town?

You can take bus No. 4 or 18 to reach the Old Town from station. Or you can go by carpool too, about CNY40 per person. To the airport, you can take a taxi to Lantian Hotel first and then take the airport shuttle bus to the airport. There is also bus No. 27 can be used but it is not very recommended as it runs on a small road and a little hard to walk to the airport from bus stop. Carpool is also frequently used, most hostels offer this arrangement, CNY80.
