How to Travel from Singapore to Zhangjiajie

Written by Kelly PangUpdated Aug. 3, 2023

From Singapore, the travel hub of Southeast Asia, to Zhangjiajie, it is best to take an airplane to Zhangjiajie. There are a few options with regards to stop overs, but you are probably best off flying directly to nearby Changsha and taking a car from there.

There are direct flights to nearby Changsha from Singapore flying with either Scoot, a Singaporean budget airline, or China Eastern Airlines. The flights are about 100-200 USD one way or 150-250 USD return depending on the time of year.

From Changsha, we can help you arrange a private car service so that you won't need to worry about a taxi or anything else! Just contact us for a quote, as price for a transfer will depend on how many there are in your party and how much luggage you have. The ride will take approximately 4 hours depending on traffic, and we can take you directly to your hotel's front door.

The fastest option here is to travel to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport from Singapore and fly to Zhangjiajie Hehua International Airport from Guangzhou, and this is the recommended version due to faster travel time and ticket prices.

The first leg of the journey will take just over 4 hours, the second leg 1 hour and 45 minutes, and both of these flights are with China Southern Airlines with prices for a return ranging between 380-450 USD. There are a few connecting options, with stop-overs ranging between 3 hours and 45 minutes to 5 hours.

Probably the second best stopover option is to fly from Singapore to Shanghai Pudong International Airport, which takes 4 hours, and then connect for a 2 hour and 40 minute flight to Zhangjiajie from there.

The transfer time in Shanghai is 4 hours, so the total flight time for this route is a bit longer than Guangzhou, and flights are China Eastern Airlines between Singapore and Shanghai, and Shanghai Airlines between Shanghai and Zhangjiajie. This flight combination costs between 400 USD and 600 USD depending on the time of year.

The best time to go is when there are no public holidays in China, as it gets really busy in Zhangjiajie, and when the weather in Zhangjiajie is best between September and early November. Chinese public holidays will lead to more expensive accommodation and flights (and sold out flights), these times are:

  • China's summer holiday season (July and August)
  • Labor Day (May 1–3)
  • National Day (October 1–7)
  • Spring Festival (late January or early to mid February)
