Fangcun Station (Chinese: 芳村站) 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 (Chinese: 花地大道) and Fangcun Avenue (Chinese: 芳村大道) 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.
