Baiyun International Airport
Baiyun International Airport opened in August 2004 and is located 28 kilometres from the city centre. Flights connect to nearly 100 domestic cities and to numerous international destinations. There are bunches of express buses, ten to be more exact that will take you to the main destinations in the city. The buses depart from arrival area. Metro is another option to travel to the Guangzhou from the airport. The metro station Airport South is located directly below the terminal building; you will see the Metro signs when arriving at the arrival hall. The Metro Line 3 runs every day of the week from 6.10am to 11pm with an interval of 7 minutes and 30 seconds. You can buy your ticket either from automatic ticket vendor machines (only accept coins) or head over to the Metro Customer Service Center. The metro is a convenient way to travel downtown for a reasonable price. Taxi ranks are located on both A and B arrival areas, (just follow the Taxi signs) at the A arrival it is set outside the gate of A8 and at the B arrival it is set outside the gate of B6. You should only use a legitimate Chinese taxi driver and not just follow anyone who is offering. The legitimate taxi driver will be waiting on the line at the taxi ranks and make sure the driver uses the meter. Also, have your destination address written in Chinese to show the driver.
