Dear Yinyi,

There are three trains from Guangzhou to Zhangjiajie every day. It mingt be difficult to buy the ticket. As they are direct trains, it's convinient for you, but you will be tired to spend 13.5 hours at least on the train.

There are many trains from Guangzhou to Changsha and from Changsha to Zhangjiajie. It is easier to buy it than the former one. It takes about 2 hours to take a high speed train from Guangzhou to Changsha and 5 hours from Changsha to Zhangjiajie. Please make sure the train is from Guangzhou south train station to Changsha south station, the train to Zhangjia from Changsha sets off at Changsha train station which is about 12 km from south station. You need to take a taxi to get there. It takes about 30 minute and costs about CNY60(US$9.5) per car. If you select this way, you could buy all trains ticket in Guangzhou.
