Asked by Ms.Lynn from USA | May. 01, 2010 21:04Reply
I would really like to travel to Bingyu Valley, but I think that I can only spend one day there. I would be traveling from Dalian. I've seen a lot of information about how to travel from Dalian to Bingyu Valley in the morning, but not how to get back. Are there only buses that run in the morning? I'm trying to avoid spending the night there.

You should first take a bus to Zhuanghe after the visits in Bingyu Valley. (The last bus to Zhuanghe departs at 16:00 p.m.) Get off at the Zhuanghe bus station and then you can easily find the bus there back to Dalian.
