Hi Irene, You could take the bus from Guangzhou Fangcun bus station. See its website here: http://www.fangcunbus.com/ . It is about 1 hour bus trip. Yes, you could take the shuttle bus in the sight area to get to the top of the mountain. You could take NO.1 tourist bus from Xiqiaoshan to Zumiao. Regards, Coco Coco Yang replied on 2012-12-03
