distance from Hong Kong to Shenzhen

by hv1

What is the distance between Hong Kong and Shenzhen and what alternatives do we have to travel between the two . Do you recommend driving? Is there a ferry and if so is it convenient and how much does it cost. Are the two cities safe , or do we have to be concerned if we hang out or travel at night?

Thanks
HV1

Ferry, train, and some hotels run a shuttle bus. Google yours!
For KCR trains from Lo Wu (short taxi ride from Shenzhen) to Hung Hom in Kowloon see http://www.kcrc.com/eng/services/services/er_shedule.asp

Re: distance from Hong Kong to Shenzhen

Lowu is on the Hong Kong side of the river. You cross it on foot and you're in Luohu, which is downtown Shenzhen. You can get to Luohu on MTRC (KCR as was) from Hung Hom, stops other places too, notably metro interchange at Kowloon Tong.

There are also buses - depending on what part of Shenzhen you actually want. It's a long narrow city, 20 km or more E-W and 3-5 N-S. Buses tend to depart from Portland Street next to Prince Edward metro station.

I'm not sure what you mean by Hong Kong city. Plenty of people about in the brightly-lit shopping areas of Central and Tsim Sha Tsui, until midnight at least. Like anywhere, just be sensible.

I hear that Chinese cities generally are less safe than they used to be, as the economic crisis is hitting the lower strata hardest - the big bosses continue to trouser whatever they can. Not just Shenzhen but other cities in Guangdong, where 85000 factories have closed since last summer.

Depending on where you want to start and end, you have the choice of bus, train (or rather, MTR and then walk across the border) and ferry. I don't recommend driving, and short-term travellers cannot self-drive in Shenzhen anyway.
Hong Kong is quite safe at night, I can't comment about Shenzhen.

Travel Tips for Shenzhen

Soviet Anti-Nazi Propaganda Posters

by bpacker

Shen Zhen is probably the last place you expect to find antique Anti-Third Reich posters. But here it is, on in the vast shell of the aircraft carrier shell in Shen Zhen. The stark ink drawings caught my attention since its wit and simplicity spoke volumes.

Where: Minsk World, Dapeng Bay, Shatoujiao, Shenzhen, China.
Admission Fee: 120RMB

Lowu Bus terminal

by SLLiew

There are many express direct bus connection between Shenzen (Lowu) to neighboring towns like Dongguan, Humen, Guangzhou or Zhuhai.

There is also intra-city buses and buses to local neighborhoods. Check with locals where to wait for the buses depending on your destinations.

For long distance buses to towns in Guangdong, you cannot book in advance. Just stand in queue. When the bus arrives and pay as you board or after you have seated. Those behind in the queue will then wait for the next bus.

Do not be surprised if sometimes, someone come on board the bus just before departure, then videotaped everyone. It is to deter bus robbery.

Anyway, do not carry a lot of valuable and cash. If you have, you should afford a taxi but better to ask a friend to pick you up.

Found it very easy to go around by buses. Have your destination written in Chinese charactors if you are do not speak Chines. Note that many long distance buses stop running earlier, 7-9 pm.

Lotus Hill Park

by limledi

This 166-hectare public park, fully forested, is an ideal place for family fun in the heart of the city. The focal point of the park is a viewing square at the top of the Lotus Hill, which got its name from its shape (like a lotus). The square commands decent vistas of Shenzhen and highlights a statue of late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who inspired the creation of the city. Below the hill are a lawn for kite flying and a lake for fishing.
We had a walk on the park and took some pictures of it. It's a very cool and relaxing place to visit.

be prepared to spend the whole day here. there are mini-shows going on throughout the day in each themed village and one grand show starting at 7PM every night.
Entrance fee is RMB120.

Shenzhen: A City Void of Depth & Compassion

by coolpanda87

"INTRO"

Compared to its capitalistic neighbour of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is a very mediocre city. Though it is prosperous, it lacks culture, arts, civil pride & an identity. I often like to refer it as the Mainland's Buffalo (in USA), for they both have lots of cheap shopping, but other than that, they are hollow shells... However, Shenzhen does have three exciting theme parks in the region that could entertain you for days =D

"Shenzhen: Where art is not embraced"

Shenzhen is definitely a product of mass commericalization and voids of any florishing arts community. It is almost as bleak as when it was still a large swamp of paddy fields on the backdoors of Hong Kong. Art is always intermangled with the notion of making money...
