Normal trains run at an average of 60 to 70 Kms per hour.  Bullet trains are running at a minimum of 250 Kms/hr at present time. 

So, if you know the distance between Beijing and Kunming, divide it by the speed and you will get an approximate of the time required, plus a bit more for any intermediate stops.  For your information, from Beijing to Kunming by train is 3,200 kilometers, and it will take from 38 to 44 hours depending on number of intermediate stops.

If you visit any website of Chinese train schedules, most of them will show train number, cost of different categories of travel available, departure and arrival times, distance and hours to arrive.  This is from where I got the information shown above.

 

A basic law of physics good to remember :

distance = speed  x  time .

I took the train from Kunming to Beijing recently, in mid April 2012. It was supposed to take 38 hours, it actually took about 38 1/2 hours. The alternative train was listed to take 45 hours.

A:I'd say no, you don't need working permit to work for Chinese Co. remotely, i.e. by not residing in China.Best advice on that you'll get from your employer. https://www.china-briefing.com/news/china-foreigners-work-permit-application-and-renewal-recent-changes/ See this part: However, because a valid resident permit is one of the primary requirements for the renewal of a work permit, without a valid residence permit, expatriates stranded outside China may not be able to renew their work permits anymore. ... or in other words, if you don't reside in China, work permit is also not required. Some more details about Work visa requirements .. https://www.hongdaservice.com/blog/china-work-visa-requirements-what-you-may-not-know -- icnif77
