Guangdong is well connected to the rest of China by bus, plane and train. The easiest entry/exit point to/from the province is Kong Kong via MTR.

Getting Around Guangdong
Guangdong is crisscrossed with a vast network of rail and raod lines, making travelling around the province very easy. Trains run north through Shaoguan and onwards to Hunan province, east to Sahntou and Fujian province, and west through Zhaoqing to Guangxi procince, while the newly-run high-speed railway between Guangzhou and Wuhan makes your travel to Hunan and Hubei provincies more economically,easily and quickly, Hydrofoils also run between the Pearl River delta region and Kong Kong. Frequent buses run to all these locations and more, but are less comfortable than trains. For real speed, there are flights between all major cities in the region.

Tips to Some Major Cities in Guangdong Province

-To/From The Airport in Guangzhou
Guangzhou's Baiyun International Airport is 34 km north of the city. There are airport shuttle buses (Y13 to Y32, one hour, every 15 to 30 minutes 7 am to 10 pm) leaving from a half-dozen locations around Guangzhou, including the Guangzhou east train station, and Citic Plaza south of the east train station, where in-town check-in service should be available by press time.

    Perhaps, bus is the best way. It takes about 2 hours from Shengzhen to Guangzhou. The price is about RMB 50-60 yuan. You can take buses in many bus stations, such as Luohu Bus Station, Futian Bus Station, Airport Bus Station, Nanshan Bus Station...
