as i know there is only a train from kunming to dali. so if u take train u will change to bus at dali to lijiang.if u want to see more scenery u'd better take bus it is not expensive. i know the price of a bus ticket from kunming to dali is about 120RMB.
BTW i am in kunming now and i will go to dali this weekend.:)

There are 2 way to go to Lijiang from Kunming.
1 Go to Dali by train or bus. I suggest that you take train with sleeper, that start from Kunming in night and arrive Dali in the morning. You can take bus to Lijiang from Dali after breakfast.
2 Take nonstop bus to Lijiang from Kunming.

I took the bus, it was pretty, but then I haven't taken the train...
