Finally our guide and driver will see you off at the airport or the railway station according to your flight or train schedule.

Since there are no many flights connecting Huangshan with other cities, for your onward journey we have following suggestions. First, you can go back from Huangshan to Shanghai by either flight or an overnight soft sleeper train; second, you can fly from Huangshan to Guangzhou directly and then travel from Guangzhou to Hong Kong by a high speed train; third, if you book a round trip international flight, you can also fly back to Beijing from Huangshan. Usually most flights departing from Huangshan are late in the afternoon or in the evening, so you have enough time today. We hope these are helpful to you and our professional travel consultants are glad to assist you in making the best plan at any time.
