I had a similar question about Wifi in Astana Airport, and my solution in the end was to check Foursquare. It's popular among travellers, and people leave tips, so often they'll comment on the wifi (or lack thereof). In this case, I looked up Guangzhou on foursquare and it appears that several people have reported using free wifi at the Oak Tree Cafe in ...

There is, in fact, a direct flight from Melbourne to Guangzhou with China Southern Airlines. (They have two websites - the global one, which I've linked to, can accept payments from international credit cards while the Chinese one doesn't. Of course, you can book via third parties like Expedia et al too.) This seems to be the easiest option. If you want to ...

Assume you mean the Panda Research Base there? You can take Bus 902 to the end of the route from the city, or take a taxi from downtown for ¥30. The best time to visit is in the morning, when pandas are most active. Feeding time is 9:30am. And if you're feeling touristy, you can take a photo holding a baby/young panda for ¥1000.

Well there is definitely free Wi-Fi at Guangzhou International Airport, including in locations that transit passengers can use.

These were of course a bit crowded with people using ...

The international side will likely have better coverage than the Chinese side. Just search for Wi-Fi, and the only thing you need to do is just ask for the Wi-Fi password. It is very easy, just say Wi-Fi or show them your ...

"a bit of a trip" is an understatement! It's over 1400 miles and 30 hours on a train to get to Chengdu from Guangzhou. The time by bus will be much longer [I don't know if there is a direct bus]. The train is reasonably comfortable if you go soft sleeper, but for that price you will be in the same price range as a flight. If you are in Chengdu, and don't ...

You can search Chinese train schedules in English at http://trains.china.org.cn/. However, for Guangzhou-Shenzhen, I wouldn't even bother: there are trains every 10 minutes or so, and the travel time is just over an hour. Just catch the subway (Line 3) from the airport direct to Guangzhou East station and take the next train from there. The only catch is ...

From what I understand of the laws is this: Visas are not required for aliens in immediate transit on connected international flights who hold passenger tickets and stay for no more than 24 hours in China entirely within airport boundaries. Anyone desiring to leave the airport temporarily must obtain permission from the frontier inspection office. If you ...
