Zhangjiajie

4.1
The city of Zhangjiajie has become particularly well known for its striking surrounding landscape. The UNESCO-protected national park represents the main attraction in Zhangjiajie, with over 3,000 quartzite sandstone columns providing one of the region's most arresting natural sights. The city itself proudly displays a diversity of folk cultures, with dances and crafts of the Tujia, Bai, and Miao cultures of particular note and protected as intangible aspects of China's cultural heritage. Make Zhangjiajie central to your China travel plans using our China trip app.

Where to stay in Zhangjiajie

An abundance of accommodations can be found across Zhangjiajie, but the most popular with international tourists sit on either bank of the Lishui River. Whether you're looking for a luxury hotel or a simple guesthouse, the waterfront areas and adjoining streets remain the primary places to look. Ziwu Road the north of the city center also offers a range of accommodations to choose from, and good connections to the main natural sights in the surrounding landscape. To stay closer to the national park, stay in the town of Wulingyuan, located near the park's main sights.
