Dongguan Transportation -- Getting There

Dongguan's rapidly developing economy is matched by the development of its transportation infrastructure, a result of careful planning. It now plays a vital role in the communication line between Guangzhou and Hong Kong as well as with the cities lying along the Pearl River.



At present, there are no direct flights to the city as the city does not have its own airport. However, it is very convenient for visitors flying to, or from, the city through Guangzhou Airport (CAN) 50 kilometers (about 31 miles) to the north, Shenzhen Airport (SZX) 50 kilometers to south as well as Hong Kong Airport (HKG) and Zhuhai Airport (ZUH) both of which are about 100 kilometers (about 62 miles) away. All of these airports have shuttle busses or ferries to reach the city. Here is some information in details.

Answered by John | Apr. 03, 2023 23:30

The high speed train is the best way and you can travel by it with China M visa. It runs from Hong Kong West Kowloon Railway Station to Humen Railway Station. It's much faster than other ways, taking only 40 minutes or so.

Take bus No.236 from Humen Government station to Humen park station, and take exclusive bus line from Humen Coach station to Jiaomen Bus station, then take bus line of Nansha 64 to South Guangzhou Bus station, and walk north of 200m to South Railway station. It takes around 2.5 hours with CNY22.

Closest long distance bus terminal from Humen Port.

I will be coming from HK airport to Huizhou but unfortunately, due to the circumstances in HK, I plan to take the ferry from HK to Dongguan Humen instead of land transport. Can I ask whats the closest long distance bus terminal in Dongguan Humen or any of these ports (Shenzhen Shekou, Shenzhen Fuyong, Dongguan Humen, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Guangzhou Lianhuashan and Guangzhou Nansha).

Thank you.
