Hello, we are planning to go to Zhangjiajie at the end of August. Is the weather ok at that time? Could you advise on places to see when staying around for about a week? And what''s the easiest way to get from there to Yangshuo? Thanks in advance!
The temperature at Zhangjiajie at the end of Aug. is around 37℃/100℉ during the day time.
Generally visitors will keep two days for Zhangjiajie National Park (one day for Jinbian Brook, one day for Tianzi Mountan), for the third day they could visit Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie city. Some younth like to extend the journey (4-5 hours by bus) to Fenghuang ancient town.
No train or bus from Yangshuo or Guilin to Zhangjiajie, you could take two hours bus to Liuzhou City, then take the train to Zhangjiajie 2012 (Dep. 21:09 -- Arr. next day 08:30). You could book the train tickets at China Highlights website for free (3-10 days before departure).http://www.chinahighlights.com/china-trains/
