  1. How much must we pay for a taxi to drive us from Zhangjiajie to Tian Tou Zhai or Guilin?
    We want to leave early in the morning 11 July. We are four people traveling together.

    Will it be possible to find an enginsh speaking driver?

  2. My flight will reach the Zhangjiajie Airport at 0030 Hrs.
    Is there taxi to take us to city hotel at this hour?
    And what are the charges from airport to a city hotel?


  3. Hi Simon,

    1. Zhangjiajie Airport to the hotel in the city of Zhangjiajie: about 10 km with taxi fare approxi. 35 yuan

    2. Zhangjiajie Airport to the hotel in Wulingyuan Scenic Area: about 32 km with taxi fare approxi. 100 yuan

    Just for your reference. Basically there should be taxis waiting at the airport.

  4. I will be in zhangjiajie on the hotel No.5 Valley Resort (Wu Lingyuan, Zhangjiajie), how much cost from the Aiport to there?


  5. Hi valter silva,

    There is no standard price for the taxi ride from Zhangjiajie airport to Wulinyuan Scenic Area. Taxi drivers don’t use meters. You have to bargain and settle the price. Normally the cab rates range from 200 yuan to 300 yuan, a bit crazy. Take care. You just take carm and try to beat the price to 100, 150. Good luck to you!

  6. Hello,

    Does anyone know how I can report a taxi driver other than by calling? I am from the U.S and phone rates are very expensive! I do want to mention that taxi drivers here in Zhangjiajie make the experience for tourists horrible! This place is beautiful, the taxi cab autority should regulate the drivers. If they want more foreign tourists to enjoy this amazing place then they should never allow taxi drivers to treat tourists and hussle them the way they do. Terrible experience!

  7. Hi Ashley,

  8. Hi

    Is there a possibility of hiring a cab for the full day with an English speaking Driver? How much would it cost for a day ?


  9. Dear Gocool,

    English-speaking drivers in Zhengzhou are quite few. You may turn to your hotel for help. Have a nice time!
