Buses are common in other parts of China. But for Tibetans in Kangding, this is a totally fresh experience.

Lots of locals were happy to try the bus in their hometown.

A passenger said it used to take him more than an hour to walk from the old town to the new one. The bus takes just twenty minutes.
