The Zhangjiajie Hehua (Lotus) Airport, located at Hehua Village, has flights that travel between Zhangjiajie and twenty-plus major cities in China, and a few oversea flights have been opened. However, Changsha, the capital city of Hunan Province is better equipped in terms of frequency of flights – tourists in other cities can fly to Changsha Airport first and then to Zhangjiajie. Transportation between Changsha and Zhangjiajie is convenient. Zhangjiajie also has tourist trains between the city and about a dozen other cities in China. Additionally, there are buses running 24-hours that transport passengers to downtown areas.
The Zhangjiajie Bus Station has buses that travel to many large and medium-sized cities of China, such as Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing, and Changsha. Some of these buses even head to surrounding scenic spots, such as Wulingyuan, Suoxi Valley and Phoenix Town. Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive in Zhangjiajie City, largely because of the cityís smaller size.
