Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, sometimes called “New Baiyun”, is the main airport serving the province of Guangdong, China. The new airport was officially opened in August 2004, replacing a 72-year-old airport complex of the same name. With an annual passenger movement of close to 55 million, Guangzhou Airport is one of the busiest airports in China. In 2014, it was ranked as the second busiest airport in China, and the 15th busiest airport in the world. It also serves as a hub for China Southern Airlines and is a focus city for Shenzhen Airlines. The terminal building complex has four-stories, with the first and second floor handling arrivals, and the third floor handling departures. The basement level is connected to the Line 3 of the Guangzhou Metro, Airport South Station. There are two boarding areas, A and B. As of 2015, construction is still underway to add on a new terminal building, an integrated transport center, and a third runway. The airport has facilities such as a VIP lounge, a business center, a post office, banks and ATMs, left luggage area, a variety of dining and shopping options, and free wireless Internet.
Guangzhou Airport is located approximately 28 km north of the city center. The most convenient and cheapest way to travel to downtown Guangzhou is via the Metro Line 3, which is located at the basement of the airport. The metro trains runs every 7 minutes from 6am to 11pm daily, and the journey to the East Railway Station will take an estimated 50 minutes. The train ride will cost you about 12 Chinese yuan (HKD$15). Alternatively, a taxi will cost about 120 yuan (HKD$143) with the same traveling time. Beware of solicitors outside the airport terminal that may offer you a ride to the city, as they are likely part of a scam to charge you an exorbitant fee. Within the city center, public transport is your best bet to get around. The public transport network is very extensive and convenient. If you are staying long, purchase a stored value card that can be used on the metro, buses, ferries, and even vending machines. Metro Line 1 is likely to be the most used by tourists, and most of the tourist attractions are located along the 5 major stops from Huangsha to Gongyuanqian.
Guangzhou, also known as Canton, is the capital of Guangdong Province and a large industrialized city located on the banks of the Pearl River. It is one of the most populous cities in China with over 12 million residents, and is also a site of historical and cultural change in China’s rich legacy. A lesson in history through some of Guangzhou’s prime landmarks will teach you about the events that have shaped modern China. Some of Guangzhou’s famous attractions include the Dafo Temple, Xiguan Residence (for traditional Cantonese architecture), the Guangzhou Peasant Movement Institute, and the Guangzhou City Museum. Do note that many museums are closed on Mondays. In terms of climate, the best time to visit Guangzhou is between April to May and October to November, where the weather is much cooler. Do note that the Canton Fair is also held twice a year in Guangzhou during these periods (Spring and Fall), so the city will be crowded and it might be difficult to get accommodation.
