Answered by Natalie from AUSTRALIA | Feb. 19, 2019 23:08

In general, the cab fare is CNY60 to 70 in the day time. But one taxi cannot accommodate 6 pieces of luggage. Thus you are advised to get two taxis.

we are 8 people and we will arrive at guyang airport on November the 3rd at 19:40: is it possible to change money?
Answered by Vida from AUSTRALIA | Oct. 30, 2018 18:17

Well, sorry, I didn't find any information online. Thus I am not sure whether there is a Money Exchange Center or not. Thus you'd better prepare RMB in advance.

Luggage storage at Guiyang Airport
I and my wife will arrive at the airport on the morning. Is there any luggage storage area in the airport for us to drop our luggages so we could travel with just a small back-pack for the next 4 days? If yes, where is located and what's the daily/hourly rate?

Answered by John from CANADA | Oct. 23, 2017 02:40

Yes, there is a luggage storing place in the right of the second floor.
It costs CNY3 for a small luggage within 24 hours; CNY6 for 2 middle ones; CNY10 for 3 big bags.
And the extra money will be charged for more than 24 hours, in your case, it may cost CNY12.
