  • There are several large modern airports in the region: Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport is one of China's main international airports and serving an increasing number of long-haul intercontinental flights. The airports in Shenzhen and Shantou also serve a limited number of international flights to other Asian countries. Many other cities also have an airport, but these cater almost entirely for domestic Chinese flights. Alternatively, travellers can consider flying into Hong Kong or Macau and crossing the border by land
  • Ferries (mostly fast hydrofoils) connecting Hong Kong and Macau with the neighboring Guangdong cities Shenzhen and Zhuhai
  • The area is also well connected to the rest of China by road and rail
