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.

You can take the Yongdong Bus at HKIA to Dongguan downtown. You don't need to enter HK and you don't need a HK visa. You can buy the ticket and get on the bus at the Counter 06 - 07, Tourism Bus Terminus, No.2 Building of Passager Transport. Then take the bus or taxi to the hotel.

You can walk southwest for 5 minutes to the city terminal of HKIA in the city and catch a bus to Humen Port, where you can take a ferry to the airport.
By the way, the buses leave at 6:50, 8:30, 10:30, 13:00 and 14:30.

We are staying at Regal Palace Hotel here in Dongguan then catching an international flight from HKIA. So do I need to get a taxi to Humen ferry port then there’s a ferry direct tot HKIA? Thanks.
Answered by Lan from SINGAPORE | Mar. 27, 2018 20:12

Yes, you got it!
But there is one thing, the schedule I mentioned is not available if you are not taking the bus from the city terminal. The ferry you may catch at Humen Port departs at 8:15, 10:15, 12:00, 14:45, and 16:00.
