Thank you, Lussie Lu. Can you advise if there are any buses from Fenghuang to Wuhan (Wuchang or Hankou) and if so, what times they are? Can I buy these tickets at Wuhan?
Dear Sir or Madam, You need to buy the ticket from Fanghuang to Wuhan at Fenghuang bus station. In addition, I double checked with Wuhan bus station some information. Eventhough they said there is one bus to Fenghuang everyday, you also need to check if the bus is available 4-5 days in advance. Lussie Lu replied on 2014-03-27
