How long does it take to explore Orange Isle and Hunan Provincial Museum?
Is it advisable to linger in the Changsha airport after arrival at the airport at 9.30 am before checking in for outbound flight at 5.30 pm? Does the airport organize half-day city trip for transit passengers?

Generally speaking, the suggested sightseeing time of these two scenic areas is half day.
You can make full use of the time to visit one of these two attractions because you need to go back to the airport at least 2 hours in advance before the departure.
Upon landing, you are advised to consult the airport staff and see whether if they provide such half day tour.

Thank you for informing me it takes half-a-day at least to explore Orange Isle and Hunan Provincial Museum. They are certainly huge. As far as my research shows, the airport does not have half-day city tours for transit passengers. It is its plan to do so only as it is still liaising with the city tourism authority to organize free half-day city tours for transit passengers. I will just experience Maglev rides and leave early for Haikou during lunch hour.

Where can i go from Changsha airport between 9.30 am and 5.30 pm?
I arrive on a weekend at airport from Haikou at 9.20 am and i have to check-in to the flight to Haikou at 5.30 pm on the same day. Where can i go from airport between these timings? Are Orange Isle and the Hunan Provincial Museum worth the visits on a weekend? How about short return flight to Dayong airport of Zhangjiajie for aircraft-spotting at 11.40 am?

Does Airport allow aircraft-spotting photography outside the terminal building?

1. It is available to visit Orange Isle and the Hunan Provincial Museum but remember to get back to the airport 2 hours in advance.
2. I'm not sure about that and you can verify if it is available with the staff of the airport.

How long do I need between flights with checked luggage
I am traveling from Zhangjiajie to Changsha, then from to Xi'an. They are two separate flights (not just a layover). The time between the two flights in 1.5 hours. My question is, is that enough time? Also, will I need to pick up and recheck my luggage or is there a way to send it straight through to Xi'an?

Well, generally speaking, the time is tight. You are suggested to leave 2.5 to 3 hours to make this transfer. If the two airlines have luggage check through service, you don't need to pick-up and recheck the luggage. And your luggage will be delivered to the destination.
