Guangzhou Airport Transfer

Hi

I will be attending the Canton fair in April and would like to know the cheapest and most efficient way to get from the airport to Soluxe Hotel (6km north of the IMport Export Fair building)

Thanks

Soluxe Hotel is next to Tianhe Park.

If you want cheapest, probably take the Guangzhou Metro from the airport to Yuancun Station. But the last leg is a 1km walk if you can do it. May be you want to taxi the last leg because you have luggage to tow. The metro fare is about RMB 20 or under. Taxi may be another RMB 15 or so I think. If you taxi from the airport to the hotel, maybe RMB 110 - 120, my guess.

If take metro, need a few transfers as follows:

Airport South Station, take Line 3 (Extension, color orange)

to Tiyu Xilu (or West Tiyu Road) Station, transfer to Line 3 (also orange)

to Zhujiang New Town Station (only 1 stop away), transfer to Line 5 (red)

to Yuancun Station (third stop)

Walking route to hotel:

Thank you for your reply.

As this is my first time to this fair, maybe it is worth my just getting a taxi from the airport to the hotel - you said it is only about RMB 120? if this is correct it is ok and would be far less hassle with bags etc

thank you

Yes. RMB 120 or so, give or take. There may be surcharge for luggage in Guangzhou - I am not familiar with. Local experts can enlighten us. Also if you run into bad traffic, it would be higher. Traffic - depends on your arrival time/day-of-week. Guangzhou (or in general rest of China) taxi fares are quite a bit lower than other "western" countries like USA from what I have seen.

No luggage charge. Maybe 10-15 yuan airport surcharge.
