###Car Hire at Anshun Huangguoshu Airport This information is correct as of August 2015.
Most people travel to Anshun to visit its famous Huanggoushu Waterfall, which is still about an hour's journey away from the city centre. In addition, the small city may be the tourist centre of Guizhou, but there are other cities in the province each with their own attractions. In order to ensure comfort and convenience when getting around, it is advisable to rent a car instead of having to rely on public transportation, which is infrequent in some areas. Having a rental car will allow you to change your destination in an instant, or have stopovers at any time.
###Where to hire a car at Anshun Huangguoshu Airport
There is very limited information online regarding the dual-use military and public airport Anshun Huangguoshu Airport and its facilities, as well as whether there is car hire service available. It is also known known if there are car hire offices located within Anshun. While it is possible to rent cars in China, it would be much more plausible for tourists to hire drivers along with the rental cars. This is because the PRC laws' requirements for self-drive car rental are unlikely to be met by short-term visitors. Cars with a driver can usually be hired on a daily or weekly basis. Car hire providers include Avis, CAR Inc. - China's Leading Auto Rental Service Provider, China Car Rental, Holiday Autos and China Car Service.
###What to expect when hiring a car from Anshun Huangguoshu Airport
Anshun Huangguoshu Airport is located at Xixiu, Anshun. The city is served by the China National Highway 320. The price of fuel in China is relatively cheaper compared to the prices of fuel in New Zealand, Germany, and the United Kingdom, but more expensive compared to the prices of fuel in Canada and the USA.
###Driving around Anshun Huangguoshu Airport
The China National Highway 320, or G320, starts from Shanghai and continues southwest through the provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Hunan, and Guizhou, then ends in Ruili, Yunnan at the the Sino-Burmese border. The whole length of the highway measures 3,695 kilometres or 2,296 miles.
As previously mentioned, it is near-impossible for a regular tourist to drive in China. One must possess a licence from mainland China (this excludes Hong Kong, Macau, or Taiwan-issued licenses) in order to drive in Anshun. An International Driver's Permit will not suffice. It is possible for foreign residents to be issued Chinese licences or for an IDP to be converted to a local license, but this can be a tedious task.
