I will reaching HKIA at around 1730hrs, thinking of going direct to GZ from there.

https://www.travelchinaguide.com/cit...t-transfer.htm

from the above website, seems like there is a coach to GZ from HKIA, but it says "A valid document/visa for Mainland China is required before boarding the coaches" , is that true? do we need?

secondly, is there anywhere we can find the timetable for coach, heard it is 3.5hrs which is long. I might also consider staying 1 night in HK and take train to GZ next day. any good suggestion are welcome.

It applies to tourists who need visa to China

Immigration is a necessity on any route. This route is not anymore troublesome than the MTR or train route. It is a normal coach. What more do you want? Google for pictures. Better yet, in Chinese.

For shopping with wife.....

Shangxiajiu Street (上下九步行街) or Beijing Road (北京路步行街) better for shopping ???
Beijing Road is better I think
btw, I love 點都德, the local Cantonese restaurant, the food is so so delicious!

I believe this sunflower garden is very far out from Guangzhou city. Not sure worth the trip unless you're enroute to Macau.

Go for one of those international hotel chains if you worry about cleanliness. eg Sunny Holiday Inn or Ibis.
