Liuku is in [North West Yunnan].
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
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 centre of town (around 10-15 yuan in a taxi), but tickets can be bought prior to departure in a small shop behind the Mingzheng hotel.
 Get around
Taxi's and walk, the city is not too large.
