How long would flight takes from Xiamen to Changsha and the costs?
Answers (1)
Answered by Amanda from USA | Sep. 24, 2019 20:42

Flight only takes 1.5 hours, so it is still much faster than train. Full ticket price is CNY1200, if you can find a discount more than 60% off, it is very suitable. But if you are traveling during summer time, train maybe more reliable as flight often get delayed or even cancelled due to typhoon.
