Very beautiful place which u can take many nice pictures. Shops along the streets as well. Many toilets available, so no worry. Recommend to bargain, cut the price at least 50% before you buy as its a tourist attraction place.

As others have said, Changsha International Airport (CSX) is your best bet. You might want to check flights to Zhangjiajie (DYG) or Huaihua (HJJ), too, which are closer to Phoenix Town... But you're probably better off with... More

Hi everyone! I'm going to visit Zhangjiajie and Phoenix Ancient Town this April. I have just decided to go, so not had enough information yet. Could anyone tell me, is it possible to visit both in just 3 days? I want to visit Tianmen Shan, Tianzi Shan in Zhanjiajie, then transfer to Phoenix Town. Is it okay?
