Kaili (凱里; Kǎilǐ ) is an industrial city in Guizhou province. At the edge of the city, there is a huge power station burning coal. This makes the whole city dusty and polluted. The rundown buildings, new constructions in progress and other heavy industries (cement factories) don't make Kaili a terrific touristic place. On the other hand, it is the center of a scenic region with many colorful ethnic minorities in villages nearby, so it does get quite a bit of tourism.

From Guiyang airport, you'll need to take a taxi to the Guiyang Eastern Bus Station. It's about a 15 minute journey and will cost about 15 RMB. Buses run every 30 minutes and cost 70 RMB. The first bus is around 7 am, and the last bus is around 6:30 pm. The trip to Kaili takes around 2.5 hours.

You can also take a taxi into Guiyang and then take a train to Kaili. However, not knowing the train schedule and if there will be tickets, makes train travel risky.

From other places in China, Kaili is rather easy to reach. There is a train line running through Kaili, making it reachable from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Kunming - all by overnight or long distance train. A high speed rail line will be completed during the summer of 2015, linking Kaili to both Shanghai to the East and Kunming to the West. The high speed rail line from Guiyang to Guangzhou is already open, but does not run through Kaili. If visitors want to use that line, they must exit the train in Duyun. From there they can take a bus to Kaili or travel by taxi, which is more expensive.
