Answered by Nancy | Oct. 08, 2019 20:02

I heard there are very few buses from the long distance bus stations near Chongqing North Station to Fengdu, then you can take city bus or taxi to the Ghost City. If you cannot catch a bus from the nearby bus station, you can go to Sigongli long distance bus station for the bus instead.

Thank you for your inquiry.

South square will stop for use until year 2021. During these time, only North Square will be used. Travelers with tickets depart from North Station can go to North Square directly for checkin.
