We might be bringing camping gear with us from a previous expedition. Will we be able to camp in or around the zhangjiajie nature park? We just prefer camping and hiking to hotels. Thank you!
Hello VT members,

Are there any night market around the city?
What is the taxi cost from airport to downtown Zhangjiajie near the Train station, is it safe to take taxi if the flight arrival is around 22pm
Canadian here, semi-professional photographer, I sell my photos at my local crafters market and this helps me pay for my next trip. I've photographed China a few times already, customers love it. I'm going to ZJJ in September and have only 1 day to select the most photogenic spots of the Park and need help narrowing down my selections. I was thinking about Avatar mountain (it might sell, if I get some mists in the shot) and maybe Baofeng Lake (we don't have that kind of scenery in Canada especially the karst mountains), but what else? I've done Huangshan and I have a pretty good portfolio of that kind of topography so I really need something 'different'. I am doing Tianmenshan on another day, and the ZJJ Grand Canyon on the final day. So, just mainly speaking of the park and surrounding area (by publice transport), what shall I do? I noticed a lot of the scenery reminded me of Bryce Canyon in Utah (a different color tho!), so I'm not sure if that's really different enough for my folks. There's a couple natural bridges around there that might be cool. Other suggestions?
I'm really having some difficulty mulling this one over and I really want to go to FH so I simply must find a way to do this: I'm still pondering my options to get from FH to (ultimately) Hong Kong in 1 day. If you've done this route before, can you give me some ideas? The first idea I got was to take a bus from FH in the morning to Changsha and catch a G-train to Shenzhen. But I understand that the bus can take from 5 hours to 7 hours to get to Changsha?? I tried to find a flight from Tongren to Guarngzhou, but the only 1 flight available leaves at 10pm and gets to Guangzhou at 1130pm so that doesn't help me. Then I had the bright idea to hire a taxi or guide to drive us from our previous hotel in Zhangjiajie to FH, stay overnight, and then have him drive us to Changsha in the morning, but I don't know how costly that would be and I don't know who to contact to get a quote. So, any other ideas? I really am set on 1 night in FH but we really have to get back to Hong Kong in 1 day and I like the bus idea to Changsha but 7 hours?? Really?

I saw this photo when I was googling 'bridges' in Zhangjiajie and this one came up. They call it a moon bridge, and I'm wondering if it's really real and if so, whereabouts is it? I'll be in the area in September this year. And the chinese name if you know it, please!
Hello, I am wondering about the backpacker culture around Zhangjiajie. I am a first time backpacker traveling SOLO In April. I am looking to be there mid apr sometime.. I know it's a popular place amongst the Chinese, but am I likely to run into other English speaking backpackers in the Youth Hostels there to go on these long hikes in the area with? As it's kind of complicated and out of the way to get there I don't really want to hike for days alone!

We are thinking about flying from Kunming to Changsha, staying 1 night and then we want to get to FengHuang for 2 nights, coming back to Changsha via Zhiangjiaje (maybe) to catch a plane up to Taiyuan (Pingyao). I can't find any word of a 2-3 day tour to FengHuang online. What is the likelihood I can arrange a private/non-private tour or even a shuttle bus to get to FH from either the airport or our hotel (haven't picked one yet but heard great things about one called the FeeTel Creativity hotel)? Any idea of cost?

Can someone please tell me how to catch this bus and when does it leave Changsha? Also, what is the bus fare? Would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

As i m planning to visit Zhangjiajie. I would like you to suggest about

I'm sorting through a list of towns to visit in China in September 2011 and FengHuang has entered my radar as a possibility. Apparently, there is a lovely gorge nearby called the TiangLong Valley (or something like that) with steps bolted into the sides of the cliff to walk above the waterfalls. How do it find info on that and how to get there (and back?) For hotels in the town, I understand that there may be some new ones along the river which might be nicer than the listed ones on Tripadvisor. Has anyone been there recently and can recommend a (clean) hotel for 2 older ladies who are still fairly active? We'd like to be close to the scenic spots in town. Also, I need info on how best to get there from either the nearest city's airport or the nearest city's bus station that has frequent buses to and from FengHuang. Dont' worry about where it is, we'll there (fly in?) in order to save time as we only have 10 days in China and many towns to visit (In order, first draft: Shanghai, Hangzhou, Huangshan, Xingyi, Taiyuan, Pingyao, Beijing). Information websites would be most apprciated!
