  1. For people who fly to Xiangfan Airport please contact us and we'd like to suggest a travel agent for your temporary stay overnight in Xiangfan City before heading to Mt. Wudang the next day by bus which is very convenient due to the intensive bus departs in daytime. Most such flights arrive Xiangfan Airport late in the afternoon and you need two hours of drive to reach Wudang and Wudang Scenery Zone close the door before 7:00 pm.
  2. Wudang Town is the closest station located at the foot of Mt. Wudang. But because it is a small train station and many trains do not stop at it.
  3. Liou Lee Ping is about 15 minutes drive from Mt. Wudang Town. It is also a small train station but larger than Wudang Town station.
  4. ShiYan City is the relatively large train station. It is about one hour's drive from Wudang Town.
  5. Foreigners are advised to flight to Beijing, Shanghai or GuangZhou which are largest cities in China. Then take the express train, buy sleeping ticket, lie down in the four - six persons cabinet to sleep, to arrive at Mt. Wudang in an easy way. Though it is a long time travel, but you can do sight seeing or just lie down to rest. It is not a tiring travel. Some people may think about air flight to Wuhan or Xiangfan, but in consideration of the inconvenience that may cause in getting aboard the airplane and going to unknown cities to find succeeding saloon bus or train heading Wudang, we here sincerely suggest the transportation tools of train, which is safe and free of much trouble even though slow. We have travel agents located in Beijing and Wuhan and they can help to book the ticket in advance.
