Long Quan - 龙泉
I have just come back from a day trip to Long Quan, planned after reading the article you posted, and I think that the information you provided might not be accurate.
From Xinnanmen station there are indeed buses to Long Quan (5 RMB now), but when I arrived in Long Quan and asked "where is the lake", I was told that I needed to take another bus (865, from the same station) to Long Quan Lake (龙泉湖). It's a 20km ride and it takes 1 hr! Besides that, there are only 6 buses a day that go from Long Quan to Long Quan Lake, 3 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon, in my case I had to wait 45min for the next one. I asked and there is no direct bus between Chengdu and Long Quan Lake.
The entire journey, including waiting for the second bus in Long Quan, too me 2 and 1/2 hrs.
The article only mentions a 40min ride and fails to mention that the lake is not actually in Long Quan.
A good friend of mine asked me to bring some baby formula for his baby. He asked for 6 cans (3 different products). I will be flying from Germany through Abu Dhabi (not Hong Kong).
All the sites I consulted talk about Hong Kong... does anyone know how many cans/kg I am legally allowed to bring in?
