In 2019, when the spring is blooming, our husband and wife, driving from Beijing to Yunnan by car, and traveling 15,000 kilometers in 90 days, have a very good time.
Beijing——Xuchang—— Jingzhou-Tongren-Guiyang (Pingba Cherry Blossom)-Puzhehei-Bise Village-Mengzi-Yuanyang (Hani Terrace)-Jianshui-Mojiang-Pu’er (Simao)-Xishuangbanna (Jinghong)-Tropical Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences-Jinghong-Erhai-Lancang-Menglian-Western Union-Cangyuan-Lincang-Baoshan-Longling (Songshan)-Mang City——Taomachi——Ruili——Yingjiang——Tengchong——Lishui (Liuku) —— Fukong——Liuku—Yunlong (Nuo Deng) —— Jianchuan——Dali——Heqing— —Lijiang — Tiger Leaping Gorge — Shangri-La — Yanjing (Mangkang, Tibet) — Deqin (Cizhong Village) — Wei -Shigu-Lijiang-Yuanmou-Kunming-Zunyi-Zhangjiajie-Beijing
Summary of all expenses:
The total cost of driving this time is 41,375.29 yuan, an average of 460 yuan per day. The details are as follows:
Accommodation:11,610 yuan, an average of 130 yuan per day.
Food and beverage:11,844.71 yuan, an average of 132 yuan per day.
Traffic:14096.58 yuan, average daily:157 yuan.
Tickets + zone tickets:2324 yuan.
Overall feeling: Because we are traveling in the off-season, the cost of food, accommodation and transportation is not high, but the cost of tickets is relatively high. There is no way. Yunnan does not. Like Xinjiang, there are travel cards, tickets and shuttle buses, which basically have little space to save.
The total cost of this accommodation is 11,610 yuan, an average of 130 yuan per day.
In the summary of the self-driving Xinjiang last time, our accommodation cost was an average of 172 yuan per day. Some friends said:You are saving so much. It is impossible to live in a room below 300 yuan!
What I want to say is, dear, you are the price of the tourist season! During the peak tourist season, the price of the hotel will be 3 times or more than usual! And, it might be full!
This is why I choose to travel during the off-season.
As you can see in the picture above, the hotel in Mengzi, the capital of the Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan, only costs 133 yuan/day. The rooms are spacious, clean, tidy, well-equipped, courteous, and cost-effective.
The choice of a hotel is a great science. It ’s not that hotels with low prices are not good, nor are hotels with high prices. You will definitely live comfortably. These are dependent on time. Only by accumulating and accumulating experience can you slowly gain experience from practice. In the meantime, tuition fees must be paid.
Some hotels, although the surface price is high, but the price is still very good, such as the four-star hotel in the picture above, in the Chinese Academy of Sciences Botanical Garden, Xishuangbanna, 498 a night. It looks like the price is a bit high, but when you book, you will receive 2 tickets to the Chinese Academy of Sciences Botanical Garden (100 yuan each). In this way, it is equivalent to only 298 hotels. The location of the hotel is very good, in the middle of the West End. Because the West District is very large, there are more than a dozen areas. If you are tired of playing in any area, you can return to the hotel to rest. In this way, you can also save 50 yuan per person in the fare ticket. It is definitely better and more comfortable to rest in a hotel room than on a stone bench or wooden chair outside. After rest, you can have more energy to visit the scenic area. The hotel’s free breakfast has many types and tastes good. After staying at the hotel, you can also play in the Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences for the whole day.
For specific strategies on hotel selection, please refer to my previous post.
Catering costs and supermarket shopping costs:
The total cost of our dining is 11844.71 yuan, an average of 132 per day yuan. Because I bought a lot of snacks and cooked foods in the supermarket as a supplement to driving on the road and scenic spots, this part of the cost is also included in the cost of catering. The specific details are as follows:
Food costs:8157.86 yuan.
Supermarket shopping fee:3,356.15 yuan.
Some people may say that the average meal cost is 132 yuan per day and 66 yuan per person. What do you eat?
1. Many hotels include free breakfast . It is important to have a good breakfast.
2. Even if some hotels do not include breakfast, almost all cities in Yunnan have rice noodles for breakfast, ranging from RMB 6 to RMB 10 for a bowl.
3. There are many foods in Yunnan. Many foods are delicious and not expensive.
Guess what, in the picture above?
This is the side dish of the bridge noodles! 9 荤 12 vegetarian, 21 kinds of side dishes in total, rice noodles are not enough to add free, and free buffet drinks, in a five-star hotel in Mengzi’s oldest, a set menu, only 28 yuan!
The picture above is a takeaway from the restaurant next door eaten at the Kunming Hotel, pickled fish and green beans with minced pork and green beans, plus a box of rice, and a small box of pickles. 53.8 yuan, large portions and delicious. This restaurant is a chain restaurant, and his family’s takeaway has been eating for several days without wanting to leave Kunming.
4. There are many special dishes in Yunnan.
1) Various flowers that can be used for cooking.
Yunnan has a lot of edible flowers, most of which I ca n’t name, and the local accent is not very clear. Although the dishes prepared are not well-sold, they taste very good and they also serve meals
2) A variety of edible fungi.
If you go to Yunnan, the last thing you can’t give up is a variety of fungi, such as porcini mushrooms and pine mushrooms. Although they are farmed and not wild, they taste Still very tasty. However, when buying, be sure to pay attention to the scale and calculate the price yourself. I bought it 3 times here, and the first two times were fine. The last time I wanted to buy more and take it with me. I asked the stall owner to save some the day before, but I did n’t look carefully when I took it. Almost half.
3) Some local specialties can only be eaten.
Yunnan has many special foods, such as Jianshui specialty grass buds, one of the eighteen monsters in Jianshui, & # 34; grass buds are sold as ivory & # 34; . The grass buds are white in shape, crisp and delicious, and have a unique fragrance, which is one of my favorite Yunnan food.
This time from Beijing driving Yunnan, the journey is 15,000 kilometers, the total transportation cost is 14096.58, an average of 157 yuan per day The details are as follows:
1. Toll fee:3662.65 yuan.
2. Come on:7769.93 yuan.
3. Parking:100 yuan.
4. Car wash:70 yuan.
5. Maintenance:2566 yuan. (Maintained twice, changed one battery and two tires)
1. There are fewer high-speed highways in Yunnan There are many national and provincial roads, many mountain roads, and some sections are very narrow. Self-driving friends must pay attention to controlling the speed, and do not overtake the curve. When the mountain road turns can not see the car coming on the opposite side, the whistle alarms.
2. The bridges and service areas on some highways in Yunnan are themselves attractions. Longjiang Bridge and Qijiangba Service Area, as shown above, are both Well worth a look.
3. Before getting in the car every morning, please take a minute to check the four tires to ensure that there are no accidents.
4. The Yunnan-Myanmar Highway and Jingmai Chashan are boulder roads. The car can go, but it hurts the tire very much. After passing, pay attention to check the tire wear. Happening. The Yunnan-Burma Highway on this marbled pavement still retains some of its original appearance, which is a rare historical memory.
5. Deqin and Shangri-La have higher altitudes and some sections have a larger slope. Downshift when going uphill or downhill. Ensure uphill dynamics and downhill deceleration. In case of accident.
6. The high-speed tolls in Yun and Gui sections are relatively high, about 0.7 yuan per kilometer.
7. Tolls on some national highways in eastern Yunnan.
Scenic area tickets and section fares
Yunnan area tickets are generally higher, and most areas have pushed the door outward , Forcing tourists to purchase a shuttle bus separately, and an additional fee.
Like the famous Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, 10 kilometers in front of the scenic area gate, you will start to collect & # 34; 进 山 费 & # 34 ;, which is actually a ticket, but because the distance is too far, So it was renamed the entrance fee.
Why charge so far? Because there is a viewing platform at a distance of 7 kilometers from the gate of the scenic area, where the clear Yulong Snow Mountain can be photographed, it is estimated that in order to prevent tourists from shooting here for free, the entrance to the charging point has been pushed forward by another 3 kilometers.
Yunnan, there is no such a joint ticket as Xinjiang’s & # 34; 旅游 一 卡 & # 34 ;, it is said that it was issued once 10 years ago, but it was cancelled later, and tourists can only go to one place. , And then purchase tickets for local attractions separately.
Last spring, our husband and wife, traveling from Beijing to Yunnan by car, traveled 15,000 kilometers in 90 days, with a total cost of 41,375.29 yuan, an average of 460 yuan per day. Living well, eating well, and playing well are considered cost-effective. A higher self-driving trip.
