There is no direct public transportation. You need to transfer a few times and it won't be easy for you to find the bus stops. Thus you are suggested to take a taxi or hire a private car from the railway station. Generally speaking, the cab fare is CNY 150 to 170.

Actually, this city doesn't have many popular scenic area.
However, Yueyawan Bathing resort, Wang'er Hill, Xianrendao Forest Park and Water Fairyland are worth to see.
About the transportation, taking a taxi or hiring a private car is a good choice for you due to the not-so-convenient transportation.
