1. Eat in Zhangjiajie: The food in Zhangjiajie is the traditional Hunan food(the famous spicy food in China). Everything is very spicy here. I will recommend the Zhangjiajie Larou and Tucaihuoguo. They are very specail food in China.
If you wanna eat in the restaurants near the Zhangjiajie tourist attractions, it is much more expensive than the restaurants in the downtown of Zhangjiajie city.(the tour guide can get a high commission from the restaurants near the Zhangjiajie tourist attractions)
In the downtown of Zhangjiajie city, you can have more choices. There are a lot of good restaurants there and the price is pretty reasonable. You can get all kinds of good stuffs there like “Xue Tofu”, “Tuanniancai”, “Shefan”, “Suanyurou”, etc.

2. Hotels in Zhangjiajie: There are too many hotels in Zhangjiajie now and the competition makes the price lower and lower. Sometimes you can get a 3 star hotel at only 100 rmb. Another thing you should know is that the price will go up in the big Chinese holidays.
