maxnoss has indicated that this thread is about China

Everyone seems to travel from Kunming to Hekou by "sleeper bus" and then tell how awful it was. Is there a sleeper train and how long does it take?

There was an old train line between Kunming and Hekou. But it was closed several years ago. So, bus is the only choose except for on foot.

And the good news is, the government has made a plan to build 5 train lines in Yunnan Province in 4 years, contains the lines for Vietnam, Burma, Cambodia.

Thank you for the information. Don't think my feet are up to the walk, may fly to Hanoi and take the train to Lao Cai.
