You can make full use of the layover to tour around Han Zheng Street, Hanjiang Walking Street and Cultural Street in Xianggang Road. You can find many nice local snacks and interesting souvenirs. Remember to go back to the airport at least 2 hours in advance before the departure.

You are not advised to exit the airport for sightseeing because of the tight time. At first, you have to reserve 1.5-2 hours for the transfer to your next flight. You are advised to stay at the airport.
