The Zhuhai Airport
has flights to dozens of domestic cities such as Beijing (3 hours), Shanghai
(2 hours), Chongqing (2 hours) and Haikou (1 hours). The airport lies 40 kilometers from downtown, so a trip can
cost RMB100 or more. But there is CAAC shuttle bus service to and
from the airport and downtown Zhuhai.
The Guangzhou-Zhuhai railway is under
construction. So until now, there is no railway to Zhuhai. But you can
still buy Guangzhou
tickets in Zhuhai since the ticket offices are hyper-linked, which is
convenient if you don't have time to buy a ticket in Guangzhou.
137 kilometers south of Guangzhou on the
Zhujiang Delta, the city is conveniently connected by highways with
other cites around. There are frequent busses to Guangzhou, usually
with a half an hour interval. Air-condition busses head for Beihai, Shenzhen,
Shaoguan, Shantou, Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan and Panyu are also
available at the long distance bus station in the Gongbei District.
Ferries depart from the ferry port in
Jida. They go between Zhuhai and several other cites, including
Guangzhou, Wuzhou, Shenzhen, and Hong
Loads of bus lines run in Zhuhai at
normal service hours from 06:00 to 22:00. Zhuhai taxis (starting price
RMB10) are among the most expensive in China. But it is one of the
most convenient means to travel around. Minibus is an alternative,
cheap and fast. There's now also a tourist coach (only RMB2; 15 m
intervals) which goes from Zhuhai
Hotel to The Four Grand Buddhist Mount.
