The best way to go to and from the station by public transportation is by taxi or subway.
Guangzhou Train Station is one of the biggest stations in China and mostly for slow regular trains and long distance travel,also have some trains go to Hong Kong/Shenzhen. It is a big old station in the west central city area. Try to avoid guangzhou railway station if you can, its old and has a lot of people.The train station i like to use is guangzhou east station. The station is in the city center and also in tianhe business district. There are also restaurants (like Starbucks & McDonald), hotels and shops in or around the square. sometimes, i go the restaurants there before or after i am getting the train.Note that these lines get packed from about 7:30 am to 9:00 am and 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

Guangzhou South : The problem with Guangzhou South however is that it takes longer to reach it from central Guangzhou where most tourists and business people want to go.This station is only about 10 kilometers away, and it would seem that going by subway is quick and fast, but it isn’t. Journey time by metro is about 40 minutes (4 RMB). Taking the taxi is faster and less stressful.
