Does anyone know the date of Long Street Banquet in 2018?
Do we just join in the festivities - is it at Luchun? Or pay for an invite? Many thanks or any info on that.

We would love to visit. Can you tell me how I can get to Luchun, please?!? I am arriving at Kunming, then to Jianshui, Yuanyang Rice Terraces and hopefully to Luchun. Would love to stay overnight to join in the festivities on the 29th and then the festival itself. Please help with any information. I wasn't able to find how to get to Luchun.

To be honest, there is limited information about Luchun Long Street Banquet online, but I heard that there is an expressway between Yuanyang Rice Terraces and Luchun, so you may charter a vehicle to get there.
