Chinese Directions for the taxi driver...

大理古 城西门 村十组 ( 红龙井 城 门斜对 面西北 五十米 荣升钢 门窗制 作中心 后排 )

From Xiaguan Bus Station:

Expect to pay 50 RMB for a taxi to the Jade Emu/Roo International Guest House. The taxi driver will not normally use a meter to get to Dali Old Town. This is the standard rate for locals as well.
Alternatively, for those on a tight budget... Catch a taxi to the XiaGuan train station (5 RMB) and follow the instructions below for getting here from XiaGuan train station

From Xiaguan Train Station:

Catch the blue bus outside the train station called 'Xiaguan Train Station to ChongSheng Temple'. It has no number, and departs every 20 minutes. The fare is 1.5 RMB. Get off at the 'Red Dragon Well Gate' (called 红龙井城门 or Hong2Long2Jing3Cheng2Men2). Red Dragon Well Gate is an archway in the grey stone Dali Old Town West Wall (approximately 30 minutes on the bus). From this archway, cross the highway and walk 60m along the highway in the same direction as the bus. You should see the Jade Emu International Guesthouse sign (on a 5m pole beside the highway). Turn left up the small street. You will then see the 40 square metre sign ahead of you for the Jade Emu and Jade Roo guesthouses...

From LiJiang

Because of roadworks on 214 National Highway you will most likely be dropped off near the East Gate of Dali Old Town. It is a 20 minute walk from there to the Jade Emu. Alternatively a taxi will take you here for about 10 RMB. Be sure to tell the bus driver you want to get off at Dali Old Town or otherwise you might find yourself in XiaGuan (Dali New City).


From Dali Old Town

Some mini-buses from Kunming and Lijiang will drop you off in Dali Old Town at various locations. With the map in hand it is an easy walk to the Guest House. If it's been a long day and your backpack/luggage is too heavy, a local taxi will drive you to the Guest House for 10 RMB.

From Dali Airport

A Taxi from the airport will cost 80-100 RMB to the Jade Emu International Guest House

An important note about taxi drivers...

Some drivers may try to tell you a range of stories such as 'The Jade Emu no longer exists' or 'The Jade Emu is in a dangerous area of Dali'. They do this in an attempt to take you to a less reputable guesthouse that pays them commission to take you there. Our advice in this situation is to find another driver.
