Liuku is in Northwestern Yunnan.

Liuku on the Nujiang River (Salween River)

Understand edit

Liuku is not a tourist destination. It is a transport hub that is necessary to pass through to head north up the Nujiang valley. This city, however, is very clean and pleasant. It is a relaxing place to stop over for a few days.

Get in edit

By bus edit

Busses run between Liuku and Gongshan, Kunming and Xiaguan. Busses also run north to Bingzhongluo, but the road is still a no-through road, so after seeing Bingzhongluo you must back track to Liuku. The bus station is a little out of the center of town (around ¥10–15 in a taxi), but tickets can be bought prior to departure in a small shop behind the Mingzheng hotel.

Get around edit

Taxis and walking, the city is not too large.

See edit

A pathway runs up the hill from the foot bridge and along the top, you can get a great view of the city. This path is easy to find as it is illuminated with neon lights at night. The riverside is quite busy at night, take a walk to see the locals dancing or to have a drink at one of the many bars.
