Can I departure from Shenzhen north train station to Guangzhou Airport
Answers (1)
Answered by Roger | Nov. 28, 2018 21:55

There is no railway station in Baiyun airport. The closest one should be Guangzhou North Station, but only a few rides stop there. Most of them will stop at South Station istead. You can then take metro or taxi to reach the airport.
