GuangZhou ----> Hongkong, Kowloon

by racerbike

I would like to enquire regarding the transport from Guangzhou to Kowloon (hongkong). Is there several ways of getting to HK? Please tell me each ways and the charges. Thanks

Re: GuangZhou ----> Hongkong, Kowloon

by gaolei

The easiest way is by train. You just get on in GZ and get off in Hong Kong. It takes about 2 hours. The train station in in central Kowloon, just a short taxi ride to anywhere in Kowloon, or go over to the subway station and get the cheap ride around town.

I agree, the easiest way would usually be by train. Bus is also possible but generally slower and more troublesome.

Re: GuangZhou ----> Hongkong, Kowloon

by tkdsimes

Definitely get the train. I got it last year and it was fast and comfortable, cost me about USD 15 each way if I remember correctly.

Also, Guangzhou has 2 train stations. Only the Guangzhou East train station has trains going to Hong Kong (Kowloon). Make sure you're at the right one!

A simple flip of my Lonely Planet China got me the answer.
Yes, it's in Kowloon.

Travel Tips for Guangzhou

Basketball

by Sobe-A-Rush

There is tons of basketball courts and it is usually pretty busy. The Basketball courts are open untill 8pm, you can pay 5RMB to play for how ever long you want. You cannot get through the gate unless you pay. It is not hard to find people to play with once you go inside. Whatever you want to play with.

Great Dim Sum

by Skibbe about Garden Restaurant

They give eleven different kinds of Dim Sum, with half of them being salty and half sweet.
We called this place the Garden Restaurant but I don't know if it was part of the Garden Hotel. Researching...

When you get tired of Chinese, there is the usual fast food joints (McDonalds', Pizza Hut, KFC) and Lucy's, next to the White Swan Hotel. The Dong Fang Hotel also has many great restaurants. The Hard Rock Cafe, which we visited a lot when I was there, is no longer open.

Guangzhou - Capital of Guangdong Province

by cmlduterte61

"Guangzhou - the rise of manufacturers"

I've been to Guangzhou thrice to date already. My visits were mainly business and meetings with suppliers and manufacturers. Getting around tourist spots seemed secondary to me, which I have yet to experience more and appreciate the true natural beauty of the place.

Guangzhou seems to be trailing Shanghai and Beijing and it won't be long before it can actually be one of the elite cities of China. Progress and builing of infrastructures and manufacturers of all kinds of products are emerging in this fast paced Chinese City.

"Getting There"

There are flights directly to Guangzhou. Some of the airlines are China Southern Airlines and Dragon Air. From the Philippines there's PAL and Cebu Pacific.

I have yet to experience going there by plane, since I usually go there via coach from Hong Kong International Airport. A Chinese Visa is required when visitting Guangzhou. You can get it from your local travel agent weeks before your trip. The travel takes 6 hours. Here are the procedures on how to get to Guangzhou via HK Coach at the airport:

1. At the arrival area, proceed to CTS counter and purchase ticket. If I remember it right it's around HK$250. A CTS sticker logo will be given to you. Don't lose the ticket and the sticker. You'll need it once you're on the other side of the HK-China border.

2. You'll be guided right into the CTS bus which leaves hourly. You can check the website of Hong Kong international airport- going to mainland for complete schedules.

3. The total travel time is 6 hours with 1 stop at the HK-Huanggang border, so it would be better to leave before lunch.

4. At the HK-Huanggang border, you'll have to bring your luggage and pass into customs and immigration. It's always better to travel light.

5. On the other side, you have to clearly flash the sticker logo to CTS people in uniform. Usually CTS people wear ocean green. They will guide you to the right bus. They don't speak English well, so you might find it hard to communicate with them. If you're not sure you can ask if the bus is going to Guangzhou, pronounced as "Guang-chow". There's free bottle of mineral water given to you before the bus leaves.

6. From there, it's around 3-4 hours travel. The bus stops at specific hotels. Some of the hotels are China Mariott Hotel, Landmark Canton Hotel, International Academic Exchange, and a certain university. I always bring in with me a list of these hotels in English with the corresponding Chinese writings because until now bus drivers of CTS are totally English-illiterate. Just show this to the driver and point to the hotel you're staying at.

7. I prefer Landmark Canton Hotel, ranges $40 up. This place is very nice and very near to Beijing Road, Pearl River and wholesale shops. You can check out my Hotel and Accommodation tips.
