Fangcun Station (Chinese: 芳村站; pinyin: Fāngcūn Zhàn; Jyutping: fong1cyun1 zaam6) is a station on Line 1 of the Guangzhou Metro that started operation on 28 June 1997. It is situated under the junction of Huadi Avenue North (花地大道北) and Fangcun Avenue Middle (芳村大道中) in Fangcun in the Liwan District.[1] The station has four main exits (A-D) at each of the four corners of the concourse. There are two platforms on an island linked to the concourse by two banks of escalators and two stairways. Facilities include an ATM and a convenience store. The station is popular with revellers visiting the popular Bai-E-Tan (White Swan) riverside bar street on Changdi Street approx 10 minutes walk from the station, as well as shoppers going to the large superstore located nearby.

Transport connections[edit]

There are several bus stops nearby including the Fangcun Interchange station on Huadi Dadao at the southern entrance to the Zhujiang Tunnel, which is a major hub for cross-river buses. The Fangcun-Huangsha foot/cycle ferry runs from nearby Changdi Road. There is a staffed bicycle park outside Exit B of the station.
