    Kaiping Long-Distance Bus Station

    Kaiping Long-Distance Bus Station
    2 more images

    Kaiping Long-Distance Bus Station is located in the downtown of Kaiping between Xijiao Road (溪郊路) and Musha Road (慕沙路). This is not a big bus-station, but conveniently located in the city center. It looks like a new station to me. You can catch a bus here to other cities in Guangdong and Hong Kong. There are regular buses to Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, Dongguan and Foshan. Other cross-province buses also go to Guangxi, Huan, Jiangxi. This is not the bus station that you can catch local buses to sub-urban of Kaiping.

    City Buses that come to Bus Station: #2, #3-1, #3-2, #4, #5, #7, #11, #12, #13.

    For your information, there is another bigger Long-Distance Bus Station around 5KM north of the City Centre, Yici Main Bus Station (义祠公共汽车总站). This is where you can catch buses to sub-urban of Kaiping including Diaolou Villages.

    In Chinese: 开平汽车站,kai ping qi che zhan
    You just need to recognize " 汽车站 " to reach this bus station.

    Yici Bus Station

    Yici Main Bus Station
    4 more images

    The Yici Bus station is the largest bus-station in Kaiping. It is located around 5 KM north of the Kaiping Long-Distance Bus Station in the city center. Yici Bus Station is located between the two main roads, Mucun Road (慕村路) and Liangyuan Road (良园路).

    This Bus Station is away from the downtown to reduce the traffic congestion in downtown. This Bus Station has buses that in/out from the big cities like Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Hong Kong and Dongguan and Jiangmen. It also networks with local buses that travel through the countryside of Kaiping, including buses to Diaolou Villages. It also has buses cross province to Guangxi, Hunan, Sichuan, Fujian, and Yunan.

    This bus station is also the main city bus interchange. Almost all the city buses come to this station: #1, #2, #3-1, #3-2, #5, #6, #7, #10, #12, and #13.

    I went to platform 19 to catch a bus to Li Yuan (立园). If you recognize the Chinese Characters, you should be able to know where the bus is going. Also, you can double confirm with the information counter.

    In Chinese: 义祠公共汽车总站, yi ci gong gong qi che zong zhan.
    ( Just to recognize " 义祠 ” means the bus will go to this Bus Station).

    Getting to Kaiping (Hoiping)

    by karen75 Written Mar 16, 2008

    You can reach Kaiping by bus from Mong Kok in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

    Bus tickets can be purchased by the Prince Edward MTR Station and the bus pick up location is just outside of the Metropark Hotel Mongkok (Former Hotel Concourse)

    Metropark Hotel Mongkok (Former Hotel Concourse)
    Address F 22 Lai Chi Kok Road, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong
    (Exit C2 at the Prince Edward MTR Station)
    Tel F (852) 2397 6683
    Fax F (852) 2381 3768
    EmailF info.hkmk@metroparkhotels.com

    It's a four hour plus ride from Hong Kong to Kaiping. You will need to disembark the bus in Shenzhen when you are crossing the border. This means taking out your luggage and all your belongings. Suitcases, etc will be passed through an x-ray machine and your passports and Visas will be checked by border security.

    My bus ride was horrendous and uncomfortable as the bus was cramped full of people, no air-condioning, bus driver constantly honking it's horn at people on bikes, mopeds, etc so you can't sleep, and there was a ton of traffic so my ride turned into 6-7 hours. I'd take the ferry any day.

    Sight-seeing - by taxi

    by johnmperry Written Mar 4, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first afternoon we took a taxi to one of the villages, and he waited for us. This was quite an expensive way of doing things. Agreed price was meter plus 100, so it came to 250 (RMB) altogether.

    I don't recommend you do that!

    I will always take the taxi to go around places because of the relative cheap price. Within the city limit you will not spend over $30rmb to go anywhere. Another alternative if your in a hurry or want to save a little money is to ride the motorbikes for at least half the price. $10rmb can get you most places in the city in a motorbike. They can easily be identified by the yellow outerwear that they wear. There are also many unmark vans that acts similar to taxis without the meter of course so negotiation of price is highly adviced.
