Transportation from Changsha airport (CSX) to city (Railway Station) for late night arrival.
I'm arriving late in the evening 11pm next Saturday. There seems to be no information for transportation such as taxi to CS city (Railway station). All transportation (bus and train) stop quite early.

Where can I get a taxi and how much would it cost? Any late night charges?
Answers (1)
Answered by Quinn from AUSTRALIA | Dec. 03, 2018 18:29

The get-on point for a taxi at T1 is at the entrance of Gate No.3 of the arrival lounge; at T2: the entrance of Gate No.5 of the arrival lounge. The taxi fee is about CNY100-110.

geting to and from Changsha Airport to huangxing road walking tour
I have a 10 hour layover between flights and need to know public transportation options between Huanghua Airport to huangxing road walking tour, ideally a metro
arriving at airport at 9:30 and departing airport at 2000
Answers (1)
Answered by David from USA | Oct. 22, 2018 20:28

First, take the airport express and get off at the railway station. Then walk about 6 minutes to the metro station to take the metro line 2 and get off at Wuyi Square. Then walk about 9 minutes to the Huangxing Road. The whole ride needs about 1.5 hours and costs about CNY8 per person.

Arrive at the airport at 09:30
Get on the airport express at about 10:00
Get to the Huangxing Road at about 11:30.
Departure flight is at 20:00 and reserve 2 hours or so for boarding the flight.
Go back the airport before 18:00 and leave the Huangxing Road at about 16:30
Therefore, you may walk around the road for about 4-5 hours.
