The Terminal has three floors. The first floor will be used for check-in and security, the second for outbound travellers, and the third for inbound passengers. It will only take about two hours to travel from Pazhou to Hong Kong International Airport.
Pazhou Ferry Terminal is near the Canton Fair Complex and Pazhou Station on Metro Line 8. According to Guangzhou Municipal Transportation Bureau authorities, the city will add more trains on Metro Line 8 and Line 4 during the Canton Fair, and two temporary buses from the Canton Fair Complex to Huanshi Middle Road in Yuexiu District and Liuhua Road in Liwan District.
