      Senior tourists entrance fee

      by orchid1949 Online Now Jan 31, 2015 at 6:08 AM

      I wonder if we can apply for senior discounts visiting National parks, museum, etc in China. Last October, we visited zhangjiajie, Wulingyuan, Fenghuang...we showed our passports which the ages shown over 65 years old. Everywhere we went, we were charged normal entrance fee as the guide said that it is not applicable. I think the guide tried to overcharge us. Or the senior discount only apply for Chinese citizens? Since the fees are very expensive and we visited many places where fee required. It came up almost 1000 yuans for one week there.

      What to photograph in Zhangjiajie Scenic Park(s)

      by SandiM Online Now Jul 26, 2013 at 2:11 PM

      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?

    • Zhangjiajie (and area) hostel culture for a solo backpacker

      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!

      by SuHang Online Now Nov 19, 2009 at 7:49 PM

      I will be arriving Guilin early January 2010, since I have 14 days to travel, I am thinking of going to Zhangjiajie/Feng Huang Gu Cheng first.
      The following would be my tentative itinerary:
      D1: Arriving Guilin in the morning 1100, then take a train to Changsha, Hunan; stay a night in Changsha.
      D2,morning: Leaving Changsha for Zhangjiajie; stay in Zhangjiajie.

      D11: Depart from Changsha to Guilin.
      D12~D14: Guilin.
      D14, afternoon: Fly home.
      Now, I need some helps from the seasoned travelers for the following doubts:
      1) Is the above itinerary too hectic? Improvement on it would be much appreciated!
      2) Is there any direct transport from Guilin to Zhangjiajie/ Feng Huang Gu Cheng instead of going to Changsha?
      a) What is it?
      b) how long to travel?
      c) How much time to travel?
      d) How much RMB?
      3) Any other road transport other than train?
      a) how much RMB?
      b) and the time needed to travel?
      c) How much RMB?
      4) Actually, what is the best way to go to Zhangjiajie/ Feng Huang Gu Cheng from Guilin?

      Suggestions on better plans would be appreciated!
      Looking forward to your great help!

      How long is needed in ZhangJiaJie, etc.?

      by greencargirl Online Now Sep 9, 2009 at 8:49 PM

      Hi Everyone,

      We're planning a visit here soon (this month or next), along with Changsha, Chengdu, and JiuZhaiGou.

      Any thoughts on how long is needed to enjoy ZhangJiaJie? We'll likely arrive in the evening, so we can start early the next morning and are wondering if one day is sufficient, though we prefer a liesurely pace.

      Also, we're still trying to figure out the best route for our trip to all these places, looking at flight costs and so on. Right now we're thinking of starting in ZhangJiaJie (flying there from Beijing)where we can then go to Changsha, Chengdu, JiuZhaiGou, then back through Chengdu to Beijing. If you've done a similar route or have any thoughts on this, please do share!

      Many thanks in advance.
