Useful Information For 2016 Spring Canton Fair Participants
Useful Information For Canton Fair Participants
Most of the participants rely on taxi. However, it is not really wise to take taxi at the rush hour. The exhibition complex is accessible to public transportation such as metro, bus, ferry and tram. Try to get away from the people-dense area first by public transport and then take a taxi to wherever you’re headed. Some premium hotels also offer free shuttle buses to and from the exhibition complex.
Taxis are not allowed to pick up passengers in any other regions except
Area A & Area B: Complex Mid. Road
Area C: At the east side of Complex Area C
If you have the Uber app, you can call the car by your mobile phone. Other car calling apps are frequently used in China, such as Didi.
Metro Line 8 passes the Canton Fair Complex. Take metro from Exit A of Metro Xingangdong Station to Section A of the fair complex. Or, you also can go to or from Exit A or Exit B of the metro’s Pazhou station to Section B of the fair complex, or westward approximately 300 meters from Exit C of the Pazhou station to Section C of fair complex.
