Hi Alvin Ng,
You can take bus from Dongguan Nan Cheng Bus Station to Guangzhou Guangyuan Bus Station. It is every hour a bus from 06:50am to 18:30 pm. Price for your reference is CNY50. Then transfer Airport Express No.8 (A) to the airport(half an hour an Express). It takes about 2 hours. Good Luck.Christy Luo replied on 2013-11-04
Hi Parveen, at that time, a taxi to Dongguan would be very expensive. They won't charge by miles, but by price settled first. I don't know the exact price, you can try your best to get a good offer.Whitney Liao replied on 2013-04-09
