The Guangzhou Metro Line 3 stops some 400 m (437 yd) from the airport. This line has two different end points which split at Tiyu Xilu, so listen carefully or ask to make sure you're on the correct train.


A shuttle bus runs between the airport and Zhuhai every hour from 10am to midnight, departing from Arrival Hall A/7 Exit and Arrival Hall B/10 Exit. Charter bus service is available to Dongguan; tickets can be purchased at the same exits.
