Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport

Overview  
Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport is located 17 miles (28km) from central Guangzhou in the south-eastern part of China. One of the country's busiest airports, Guangzhou processes nearly 41 million passengers each year. Flights to this airport are available from more than 100 destinations worldwide, including Tokyo, Paris, Amsterdam, Melbourne, Bangkok, Cairo, Dubai, Antananarivo, Doha and Istanbul, in addition to many cities across China.

The facility is new and fairly modern, but many western travellers are disconcerted by the level of chaos inside: food prices fluctuate according to vendor preference, poorly-ventilated smoking areas are located next to child-care rooms, and long queues are hard to escape. Luckily the airport is in the middle of an expansion and reconstruction that should improve efficiency as it increases the airport's capacity to 75 million passengers per year.
