Long-Distance Bus

There are not any rail routes to Wenshan at present, though there is a railway in southern Yunnan to be built passing though this region. Coaches are the main force of transportation in Wenshan. The Beiqiao Passenger Transport Terminal in Beiqiao Lu has daily buses to Kunming and some places in Guangzi and Guizhou, as well as regular buses to other regions within Wenshan Prefecture. It is easy to find buses heading for many places of the Prefecture, including Puzhehei, Guangnan, Bamei, Babao, Tuoniangjiang, Malipo and Yuxuanhu, etc. Kunming is some 320 kilometers from the county seat of Wenshan, for about 4 to 5 hours.

City Bus

In Wenshan County, there are only ten city bus routes running through streets and lanes. According to different distance, the ticket price is CNY0.5 or 1. To promote the transport to some scenic spots, local government has opened some bus lines there. For example, you can find Bus No.3 in the country seat of Guangnan, which are leaving every one hour to the beautiful Bamei, and the journey only takes you half an hour.

If getting to other places outside of the County, Nanqiao Bus Station mainly offers regular bus routes within the prefecture. 


It is cheap to take a taxi to tour around Wenshan. There are vehicles of Santana and Xiali brands. The flag-down rate for the first 3km (2mi) is CNY5 during the day and CNY7 at night after 22:00. Additional CNY2 is charged for each ride as fuel fee. Traveling within urban area and suburban areas usually costs CNY10-20. For long-distance trips, most drivers don’t use taximeter, so you’d better discuss for a flat rate before departure.

I’m afraid you can’t find a taxi since it’s a long distance. Here is my suggestion:
Take a taxi to Wenshan Chengbei Bus Station, and it costs around 40rmb.
Then, take a bus to Hekou and it costs 41rmb for each.

Is it cheaper to take a bus from Bamei to Babao than the highspeed train?
Is it worth it to go to Babao?

It seems there is no highspeed train between two places or I just got it wrong. In fact, the scenery of Babao is just similar to the Bamei.
