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.

Yes, you can find the official website on 1F of Terminal 3. In addition, you can ask help for the staff at Service Center of Tianhe Airport. Let the staff write the Chinese version of your destination. Then you can show it to the taxi driver.

Yes, I took a taxi on Departure Hall, 4F, T3. You need to line up when there are many passengers. You'd better have the Chinese characters or Pinyin with your destination because the drivers don't speak English. As Hongshan District is large, I can just tell you the rough cost can be CNY120.

Take bus no.292 from downtown to Diaotaidao Bus Station (Huangpi District Tourist Dispatch Center) first. Then transfer to special tourist bus to the scenic site directly. The special tourist bus runs from Huangpi District Tourist Dispatch Center to the scenic area, and also back to the tourist dispatch center. It departs from 08:00 to 15:30 with the frequency of around half an hour.
