Is there a bus from Longsheng or Longji Rice terraces to Fenghuang? Or I need to come back to Guilin in order to get bus to Fenghuang? Can I take a taxi to Fenghuang from Longsheng and how much it will cost?
There is no bus from Longsheng or Longji Rice terraces to Fenghuang. There is no direct bus from Guilin either. I suggest that you take a bullet train from Guilin to Liuzhou. Then transfer a train from Liuzhou to Jishou. After you arrive at Jishou, take a bus to Fenghuang. It's more than 600KM from Guilin to Fenghuang. I don't think any taxi will provide the service.

Hello. We are visiting Fenghuang in September and we wanted to go to Longsheng after. Is there any bus or train for that? Or do we need to stop in Sanjiang first? Thanks.
There is no bus to Longsheng from Fenghuang. I suggest you take a bus to Jishou(around one hour), then take a train to Liuzhou(around 9 hours), take another train to Guilin(around two hours). At last take a bus to Longsheng, it takes about 3.5 hours. Lussie Lu replied on 2014-06-09
