How could l going to Guangzhou Baiyun airport from Dongguan Nan Cheng Bus Station. Please advise me on the ticket price and timing as well.

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.

Hi, is there any bus from Shenzhen Wan to Dong Guan? If so, what''s the schedule like? thanks
Dear Angelina, I didn't find any buses from Shenzhen Wan to Dongguan. You could take a taxi to Nanshan bus station(南山南山长途汽车站), then take a long distance bus to Dongguan. The bus sets off from 6:00am to 18:00pm. It costs about CNY50/US$8 per person. Lussie Lu replied on 2013-04-17

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.
