We took the night train from Shenzhen to Yongding on Nov 07. When we arrived, it was about 05:00am in the early morning. Luckily, it was not so cold. We eat the so called “Steamed Beef with Rice Flour”, but it was so insipid that I cannot eat up.

Coz the first train from Yongding to Xiayang County is starting from 06:20 am, so we waited about 1 hour at the bus station. The following is the bus schedule.
