Plan your Wuyishan Tour? As a civil and military airport, Wuyishan Airport is located midway between Wuyishan City ( 9km north of the airport ) and Wuyishan National Holiday Resort ( 7km south of the airport ).
Most travelers would like to stay in the hotels in Wuyishan National Holiday Resort since Wuyishan Scenic Area is on the west bank of Chongyang Stream just opposite Wuyishan Scenic Area. It is very easy for you to walk, or take a taxi or a tricycle to the entrance to the scenic area across Chongyang Stream from the holiday resort.

Wuyishan Airport Terminal Building
Wuyishan Airport has two terminal buildings – Domestic Terminal and International Terminal. The International Terminal looks shabby and lacks in maintenance since there are very few international flights. So when I visited Wuyishan Airport, only the domestic terminal was active.
This is the Domestic Terminal building Exterior. The middle gate is for the waiting lounge for passengers departing. The left side gate is for disembarking passengers.
We are boarding a plane for Xiamen from Wuyishan.
