Zhangjiajie was not part of our plan.

I was supposed to exhaust all 14 days that my visa enabled me completely in Guilin as well as Yangshuo. however when I stumbled upon a picture of the Tianzi Mountains while planning for this trip, I understood that I had to capture it into my already solid itinerary.

But there were a few problems:
1. Zhangjiajie is a bit as well far from Guilin, my entry point in China.
2. There are no direct flights from Guilin to Zhangjiajie, as well as making a connection can be expensive.
3. There are no direct trains from Guilin to Zhangjiajie.

When I landed in Guilin that day, I was keen on taking the bus to Zhangjiajie, however for the life of me, I couldn’t discover where the buses where. I discovered a bus terminal (same street as the train station), however there were no buses to Zhangjiajie when we asked. We were told that there were buses to the remote city at the train station. Off we went, however still couldn’t discover it. The language barrier wasn’t helping, either.

We decided to take the train to Zhangjiajie instead, linking in either Liuzhou or Changsha. Here’s how.

1. book in advance. Long-distance tickets can go offered out quickly particularly during peak season (May-October). While there are fair possibilities that you might still snag same-day tickets at the railway station (that’s what we did), it wouldn’t hurt to be risk-free as well as book early. Reservations open 60 days before travel date.

2. Be gotten ready for delays as well as long waits. You may discover yourself costs hours at the terminal waiting on your train so make sure you eat well before your trip. There are convenience stores inside the station however choices are rather limited.

3. Be gotten ready for the crowd. Some trains enable people onboard who have no tickets. trust me, I was one of them. There were no more seats however I was still able to get a ticket. I stayed at the area in between cars and trucks as well as sat on the floor. I wasn’t alone, though.

One more thing: English is not well comprehended in Guilin or Zhangjiajie. To make booking tickets easier, ask an able good friend to compose down your destinations or routes in Chinese characters. Our trip to Zhangjiajie from Guilin was such a struggle. When we shown up at our hostel, we asked the extremely friendly receptionist to equate the names of locations for us, as well as it made our return trip to Guilin as smooth as butter.
