Hunan Transportations

The transportation infrastructure in Hunan has been upgraded in recent years, making it now far easier to get to, and to travel within, the province. The most convenient way to get around the province's best sights is probably via the provincial capital Changsha.


By air:
Changsha Huanghua International Airport operates flights to more than 40 cities including Hong Kong. Other major domestic airports are located at Changde (flights available to Beijing, Guangzhou, Haikou and Shenzhen) and Zhangjiajie (flights available to more than 20 cities).


By train:
Beijing-Guangzhou railway runs across Hunan. The junction station is at Hengyang. Other major railways includes the Zhejiang-Jiangxi railway, the Hunan-Guizhou railway and Hunan-Guangxi railway. The latter two will lead you south to cities like Liuzhou, Guilin and Nanning.


By bus:
The road network in Hunan spans over more than 60,000 miles, extending in all directions inside the province and linking it with various neighboring provinces.  Major highways include the Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan, the Yueyang-Guangzhou and the Changsha-Zhangjiajie lines. There are frequent bus services that lead you to all major tourist sights.


By boat:
Transportation in Hunan also depends heavily on its convenient water transport network as four branches of the Yangtse River (Chang jiang) flow across this province. Yueyang, a city in the northeast of Hunan, serves as another important port along the Yangtse river.
