What’s the best way to get around Guangzhou?
While the city might seem eternally busy – it does have a population of over 12 million people – it’s fairly easy to travel around Guangzhou. There is a very elaborate but easy-to-navigate Metro system, as well as both regular bus services and a Bus Rapid Transit System which connect all areas of the bustling city. If you’re staying in Guangzhou for an extended period of time, it’s best to get a multi-purpose Ling Nan Tong - Yang Cheng Tong value card which allows you to pay for travel on the metro, bus and local ferries. As a bonus, you can also use it to pay for public phones and vending machines and for transactions in certain shops.
