Travel information

Before visiting China

To stay connected in China, it is recommended that participants setup international roaming in advance before visiting China. Please note that from past experiences, roaming will connect you to your home country’s internet instead of local network, and as such some Chinese apps may not work as intended.

Please note that payment option will be limited to cash, as e-banking in China are limited to Wechat Pay or AliPay, which will need to be linked to a bank account opened in China. This will limit the last mile transport option to taxis only, as coaches and ride-share apps will need to be paid using WePay or AliPay.

Please also prepare CNY of multiple denominations, as the taxis are not likely to be able to provide change due to the rarity of cash payments.

Transportation from the airport to the Hotel/Venue
Please display ‘东莞帝豪花园酒店’ to your taxi driver to show the intended destination. Please also show the driver "请帮我开发票,谢谢" to let the driver konow that you would like to have a receipt for taxi.
From the Hong Kong International Airport
High-Speed Train from Hong Kong

Take a taxi from Hong Kong International Airport to Hong Kong West Kowloon Station (please search for Hkwestkowloon on the railway website). Then take the high-speed train to Dongguannan Station. After you arrive, please take a taxi to the Royal Garden International Hotel (a reminder to use cash, and bring plenty of change).

Ferry Transfer from Hong Kong International Airport

Sky Pier Port at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) provides speedy ferry services for transfer passengers to Dongguan Hu men (虎门) Port. After you arrive at the Hu men Port, you can call a taxi to the local hotel (a reminder to use cash, and bring plenty of change). For the latest ferry schedule and ticketing arrangement, please check with the ferry operators.

From the Shenzhen Baoan Airport and the Guangzhou Baiyun Airport
While both Baoan Airport and Baiyun Airport offer long range bus services to Dongguan, it may not be possible to use these services as payment are made through WePay and AliPay. Therefore, it is recommended that attendees take a taxi directly from the Airports to the Hotel (a reminder to use cash, and bring plenty of change). Please note enough cash are necessary due to the difficulties of using electronic payments.
Shuttle Bus Service
Alternatively, the Local Organisation Committee has decided to provide pick-up service in all the three local airports (Guangzhou Baiyun, Shenzhen Bao’an and Hong Kong Intl’ airports). We would encourage using either the GZ Baiyun airport or the SZ Bao’an airport since it is much easier to send shuttle buses there. The bus schedules will be decided based on the flight information you provide.

From the current results of the survey, we have scheduled shuttle buses to Guangzhou Baiyun Intl’ and Shenzhen Bao’an Intl’ as shown below. We estimate the travel time to be 1.5 hours to and from Guangzhou airport, and 1 hour for Shenzhen airport, subject to road conditions. The pick-up and drop-off locations will be announced on a later date. We will be increasing the number of shuttle buses as the demand arise. As such, we would like to encourage our delegates to please fill out the survey sent to you by email.
