Take the Main Railway Station as the starting point:
1. To Green Lake:
Take metro line 1 to South Huancheng Road and transfer to metro line 2 to Jiaosanqiao Station, Exit A. Then take bus no.54 to Fuchun Street. Afterwards, walk north around 350 meters to find Cuihu Park.
To Dian Lake:
Take metro line 1 to South Huancheng Road Station, Exit B. Then take bus no.44 to Xigong Port (Dianchi Road). Walk southeast around 200 meters to find the destination.

2. Take the direct tourist bus from the Main Railway Station to Stone Forest.

3. Do you refer to Dongchuan Red Land? If yes, take a coach from North Coach Station to Huashitou Village first. The duration is around 5 hours.

4. To Dali: Take bullet train from the Main Railway Station to Dali directly. The duration is around 2 hours.
From Dali to Lijiang: Take the normal speed train from Dali Railway Station to Lijiang Railway Station. It also takes around 2 hours on the way.
