Taxi

You'll have no problem getting a taxi in Guangzhou, but as in all Chinese cities it's a problem getting where you want to go, as the drivers rarely understand English.

Other transport

The River of Pearls has a lively traffic and you can get a tour of the river. The city buses are cheap but the system is difficult to find your way around in, as the signs are in Chinese only. Subway: The subway is the fastest and most efficient way of getting around Guangzhou.
