I flew into Baiyun International (Guangzhou), and it looks like every other airport. The metro from there to Guangzhou city centre was also pretty much like every other metro I’ve been on! I was preparing myself for things to be quite difficult, particularly the lack of English, but I found most signs had English translation, and I had downloaded a map of the metro lines before I left Australia. The main differences were that the tickets weren’t tickets - they’re tokens. Also queues are a trap and they don’t actually exist here. Other than that, the bustling, busy, messy China. . .
