Dear Guangzhou couchsurfers. I'm coming over to your city on Tuesday the 1st September and will be arriving at Guangzhou South station rather late at night. Somehow I will need to get to Xintang Town, Zengcheng City. Does anyone know of a reliable taxi service that I could use to get there?

wow, it is far away from the station to xintang town. need to spend more than 200 RMB, there are lots of taxi in the station that you can take one.

Yep, that's a 60 km ride. Besides the regular taxi, you can try Uber or one of the Chinese co(m)pe(t)i(tor)s, like didi kuaidi, etc.

South Railway Station is very far away from Xintang Town. if you arrive late, you'd better spend the night in a hotel, and get forward to Xintang in the next morning. Taking a taxi is not that safe for a foreigner to go a long way in a deep night. good trip.

I'm planning to visit Guangzhou around mid April. Besides of Guangzhou's architecture and cityscape, I'm interested to try the local cuisine as well! So, if there's any suggestion on what restaurant/ cafe/ street food I must try while I'm in the city, please do share :)

I think you just need to go to the Shang-xia-jiu Street. You will find a lot of local and delicious food.And also very cheap.

I am looking for someone who can teach me Chinese (putonghua) in July. Can you suggest me an experienced private teacher or a small group language school? (I already know the big language schools like MandarinHouse, and I know about the university summer courses.) My level is about HSK4 and my spoken is below intermediate.
I am also open for language exchange for English!

looking for antiques/second hand markets in Guangzhou. Any advice?
Benson Huang , Guangzhou, CHN, 3 months ago
Hello Dario, regarding antiques markets, you can go to Changshou Lu metro station in line 1. You can try to go out at Exit A and maybe you would find some nearby at changshou Xi road, Wenchang Road and Kangwang Zhong road, Kangwang Nan Road.
