The trip back to Chengdu :
Bus / SSS / L&R / Y70 / 5 hrs
Plenty of buses ply the
Chengdu but prices very according to the type of the bus and the place you buy
the ticket... The long distance bus station only sell the most luxurious ones
at Y107. Across the street on the right (SE), good buses cost only Y70,
including a few (bad) movies during the trip and an interesting erotic one just
when you arrive...
