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.

Take high speed train from Guangzhou East Railway Station to Dongguan Railway Station first, which takes 25 minutes with CNY45.5. Then take metro line 2 to Hongfulu Station (B1), and transfer to bus No.328 from Conference and Exhibition Center Station to Changkeng Station, and walk north to your destination.
