Travelling to Fenghuang from Jishou / Guide recommendation?

Hi there, we (2 adults and our daughter of 9 years old) are visiting Fenghuang for 2 nights, travelling up by train from Zhangjiajie. We understand we need to get to Jishou by train and then by road to Fenghuang.

1. Can anyone recommend the best way to travel from Jishou train station to Fenghuang please?

2. Can anyone recommend a guide to help us see the main local sights please?

3. We then plan to travel on to Changsha - is this easy by train and would this be from Jishou train station?

Thank you in advance for your help.

There are a lot of shared van at the Jishou train station's square to Fenghuang.

In 2011.01, travelling tme is 1.00~1.50 hours, @RMB15.

There are 4 buses on Fenghuang- Changsa daily. One to Changsa Nan (South) bus station and 3 the Changsa Xi (West) bus station.

There are 5 trains on Fenghuang- Changsa which leaves at 11:23/13:22/14:28/16:04/20:58 and arriving at 18:51/21:46/23:09/00:35/06:10 respectively.

Thanks for this.

1. Are the buses local ones or more 'coach' style?

2. Re the trains to Changsha, did you mean to say these depart from Jishou rather than Fenghuang or does Fenghuang have a train station?

Many thanks

Hi

I believe you will have to go to Huahuai to get the train to Changsa

This is a good link for train info etc

http://www.travelchinaguide.com/china-trains/

There is a local tourist office just outside the station at Jishou , on your right and on the corner .

They can be helpful with local stuff

No station at Feng but you can go from Feng to Huahuai which is a main hub if you like

If you are going to be in Jishou you should visit Dehang and its fabulous Geo Park

Love the place

Google it

On the way to Dehang ou will pass under this monster

Regards
