I have generally flown to Guangzhou Baiyoun Airport, both the Domestic and International side. I have also gone by bus, and private car.
If you fly in, you will find a huge difference between the domestic side and the international.
If you come out the International door as a foreigner, the taxi drivers will ask around 100 yuan to a downtown hotel. But - if you walk 20 meters to the domestic door, I have gotten taxi's between 4 and 20 yuan, much closer to the going rate.

WESTERN INFLUENCES ON CHINA
"CHINESE POINT OF VIEW"
These photographs were shown at the Alternative Art Museum in New York as part of an exhibit of the Chinese perspective on American influences.
While we often remark, in these pages, about how unusual it is to see McDonald's, Pizza Hut, et al, in other parts of the world, Americans don't give a second thought to the tremendous numbers of Japanese, German, Swedish, Korean and British made automobiles plying the streets and highways of North America.
Why then is it so unusual for something as simple as an American Hamburger to be a source of concern in other countries?
I'm mindful of a recent outburst of Nationalism in France, perhaps just lot of noise from a few, but nevertheless loud enough to capture international attention. This called for a boycott of some of what is satirized on this page.
Lighten up, World.
"A BIG BATH"
Somehow this is supposed to be funny. If anyone feels that they can explain the humour in it, please let me hear from you and I'll amend this to incorporate your message.
"POSH PUPPIES ON PARADE"
A parody on Poofy Puppies and their Posh Upscale owners parading the streets of New York. Why not Paris?
"WHICH RELIGION IS CLASSIC?"
They called this exhibit THE THINKER
"SAME THEME, DIFFERENT PRODUCT"
"THE GOD'S MUST BE CRAZY"
Some years ago, a South African Film company produced a hilarious movie by that title. It seems that this African fellow thought that the Gods had sent this Coca Cola bottle from the Heavens when, of course, it had been discarded from an airplane.
There was a sequel to the movie that was humourous as well but by then you already had a familiarity with the theme of the story and the magic was gone.
I would not give the photographer an A+ for originality, nor do I think the exhibit itself is ART, but that's how it is in ART, it is in the eye of the beholder.
"WE FOUND THE PANDA"
In search of a Panda comes to a satisfactory conclusion.
