Fenghuang is a small county and getting there is not that convenient as getting to big cities. For traveling to Fenghuang, tourists should firstly get to Jishou (the capital city of Xiangxi Autonomous prefecture of Hunan province) or Huaihua (a big city of Hunan province), and then change buses to Fenghuang. There are direct buses bring tourists to Fenghuang from both two cities.
Taking Buses from Jishou to Fenghuang
Direct buses from JIshou to Fenghuang are available at the square of Jishou Railway Station from 6:00am to 20:00pm, air-conditioner equipped. The bus journey is about one and a half hour and the ticket price ranges from RMB10 to RMB12. Tourists also can take buses at Jishou Long-distance Bus Station about 50 meters away from Jishou Railway Station.
Taking Buses from Huaihua to Fenghuang
Tourists can take the buses at Huaihua Long-distance Bus Station (10 minutes walking from Huaihua Railway Station). There are public buses connecting Huaihua Railway Station and HUaihua Long-distance Bus Station at the square of railway station. The buses traveling to Fenghuang are available from 7:00am to 18:00pm with an interval of 20 minutes. It takes about two and a half hour to get to Fenghuang. The price varies between RMB20 to RMB30.
Traveling about Fenghuang County
There are mainly four ways: walking, taking a rowboat (RMB10 per person), renting a bicycle (RMB15) and renting a car (from RMB 50 to RMB150). It depends on you. Cycling about the county and a glide on Tuojiang River both are very interesting and impressive experiences. Renting a car to the attraction spots distances away from the county is convenient.

I want to take a bus from Fenghuang to Changsha Railway Station. I do not want to go to the Changsha West Bus Station (it leaves Fenghuang at 730am so it is too early for me). What time does the bus leave Fenghuang to go to Changsha Railway Station and how long does it take?
Thank you for your inquiry.
