Hello, I want to know how long it takes to get to Kunming Train Station from the airport?

It would be around 45min by taxi. You can also take airport shuttle bus to railway station/Jinjiang Hotel. Considering the waiting time of shuttle bus, it would be better to prepare at least 1 hour for that.

I think the train go through Dali, but it will not stop there. I did not see "Dali" in stopover list of any train from Lijiang to Kunming. If you want to go to Dali, there are direct rides to there.
