Book separately but arrange beds together?
Hi, two friends and I plan to visit Fenghuang ancient and then Zhangjiajie. We are looking for soft bed from Nanning. Can we make booking separately on your website but choose beds in same cabin? Please kindly reply.

Thank you for your inquiry.

To arrange beds together in same cabin, we need to book tickets for all passengers together in one go. You and your friends can submit bookings online individually but please kindly do inform us about this situation in remark. Please inform us which 3 passengers are traveling together, so we can find them and book tickets together. Otherwise it is almost impossible to get beds together. Hope for your advanced notice. Thank you.

How long it takes to go from Fenghuang to Jishou?
I want to catch the 19:23 train, when should I depart from Fenghuang?

Answered by Kaylee from CANADA | Jan. 08, 2019 17:40

Usually it takes around 1 hour from Fenghuang. There is no detailed bus schedule, but many buses a day. There is a bus station called Jishou North Bus Station which is near the railway station. You need to prepare around 1 to 1.5 hour for the ticket collection and boarding process at the railway station. If possible, it is still advisable to depart a little earlier from Fenghuang in case there is any delay on the way by bus.
