As I read, line 2 ends at 11:30pm. I think it should be OK to catch it if you arrived by train. They have taken the train time into consideration.

Answered by Janet from MEXICO | Mar. 28, 2019 19:20

There is no direct bus or subway. You can take bus No. 724 from Luojiashan Road (Quanyechang) to Chuhehanjie subway station and take line 4 to the railway station. Take the time for waiting etc. into consideration, you need at least 1 hour. Taxi would be much more convenient but the cost will be higher. It could be around CNY40.

If i want to go to Guangzhou Airport ,which bus can i take from GuangZhou North railway station

Answered by Nachiya from JAPAN | Mar. 07, 2019 16:07

You can take airport shuttle bus route No. 9 which runs around every 30 to 45min. The duration is about 50min. Or you may take metro instead which could be a little faster. You can take line 9 from North Station to Gaozeng and then change to line 3 to reach the airport.

I will need to go to Baiyun Airport for my international flight to Singapore.
Is it better to get off at Guangzhou North Station instead of South Station? How long will it take?
Answers (1)
Answered by Gloria from AUSTRALIA | Nov. 20, 2018 19:10

The North Station is much closer in distance. However, very few rides stop there. If there is one suitable for your time, it is good option. You can take metro line 9 to Gaozeng and then change to line 3 (North line) to the airport. The duration should be around 30min. You can also take taxi.
