Getting there & away
Wúzhōu has two new bus stations so slick they look like miniairports: Hédōng and the main bus station in Héxī. In general, buses heading for smaller and closer destinations depart from Hédōng and those heading further afield depart from Héxī. A free shuttle bus (for ticketed passengers) runs between the two stations every 40 minutes. Buses 2 and 12 also connect the stations (Y1.50, 20 minutes) or, if you’re in a hurry, a taxi costs around Y20.
For Guǎngzhōu, four expresses (Y105, 5½ hours) daily and more numerous slower buses cover the route (Y60 to Y70, six hours). There are also regular express bus connections throughout the day for Liǔzhōu (Y110, seven hours) and Shēnzhèn (Y160, seven hours), and every half-hour for Nánníng (Y90 to Y110, six hours).
