    Bus from Shenzhen to Xiamen
    4 more images

    On 20.12.12 morning, I went to Luohu to check out the night bus from Shenzhen to Xiamen. Initially, I was looking for Qiaoshe Long-Distant Bus Station at Luohu West Square. I was asking for the direction to the bus station, but the guy directed me to this bus agency office that sell long-distant bus tickets to Xiamen. So, it turned out I bought a bus ticket to Xiamen (Y200) from this office. They offered the bus ticket at Y250, I bargain down to Y200.

    I came back to their office around 20:00, I started to see more passengers show up to take the bus to Xiamen. So, one lady from the office walked us to a roadside to wait for the bus. When the bus arrived, it did not disappoint me as it was a nice sleeper bus as shown in my photo.

    When I settled down on my sleeper seat. The passenger next to me said the bus was starting from a long distant bus station from one of the sub-urban town. He paid Y240 for the bus fare. Then, some guy fatched the bus on the roadside. The lady in the bus charged him Y160, but he got a bad seat as he was the last passenger on board.

    We arrived at Xiamen Hubin Long-Distant Bus Station at 7:30 the next day.

    Based on their business card: They have the following bus shedules to Xiamen:

    Morning: 9:00, 9:30, 11:00, 12:30

    Everning: 19:00, 19:30, 20:30, 21:30, 22:00.

    Contact Number: 0755-82320632

    Direction to their office: Exit B from Luohu metro station, when you reach the Luohu Square, the building on the right, look for entrance next the Seven Eleven, as shown in my photo.

    Shenzhen to Hong Kong (Border Crossing)

    by cal6060 Written Jan 15, 2013
    Luohu Square, Shenzhen
    4 more images

    I took the metro to Luohu Station and planned to cross the border to Hong Kong on the 31st Dec 2012. When I arrived Luohu station, exit A and followed the signboard leading me to Luohu port (China Immigration). Before I reached the China Immigration, I passed by shops, restaurants, and travel agencies that sell tickets for HK attractions including Disneyland and tour packages. In fact, it is worth checking it out as I learned that you can get cheaper price for tickets and MTR Day Pass if you buy them in travel agencies in Shenzhen. But I did not bother to look...??

    When I was approaching the China immigration, the queue suddenly splits into three lines, line for foreign visitors, residents of HK and Macau, and visitors from mainland China. Because I was holding my passport, a staff dragged me to a less crowded line, foreign visitors. Oh, I suddenly realized that the crowded line is for visitors from mainland China. After 1997, most people from mainland China can legally visit Hong Kong with special passport. And HK Government welcomed them because it boosts the local economy especially tourism. The HK residents do not favor the over crowded visitors from mainland China. They think that the Chinese took their jobs, buy their stuffs like "children milk powder" cause serious inflations, and more seriously change their culture with the influence of Central government policy.

    After China immigration, I crossed an indoor bridge and reached the Hong Kong immigration. The Hong Kong immigration is much more efficient with faster immigration check, so less crowded. When I reached Hong Kong, I needed to get some Hong Kong dollars, and MTR Octopus card, a card that allowed me to travel on bus, MTR, and ferry, and even buy a drink in convenience shops.

    It is expensive to buy HK$ at Luohu, Hong Kong. Don't exchange too much, there are many money exchanges at Nathan Road to compare.

    From Luohu, I took a metro train to Hong Kong.

    Shenzhen is a cheaper gateway by flights to other part of China like Shanghai, Chengdu, Beijing and etc. You can book cheap flight through www.elong.net, pay through internet, and pick up the ticket at the airport counter before you check-in. (Written 2005)

    Shenzhen Baoan International Airport is not a huge airport, but a modern Chinese Airport that links low cost carriers like Airasia (Malaysia) and Silkairs (Singapore) to Shenzhen and other part of China.

    There are three terminals at Shenzhen Airport, terminal B, A and a small terminal for international airlines (Airasia & Silkairs). Terminal B is the building on the left, followed by the Terminal A , then a small terminal on the right.

    The metro station bridge is built between Terminal B and Terminal A. It costs between Y8 to Y9 to take the metro to City center, 1 hour.

    The airport bus is from Hualian Mansion bus number330 to airport without stop. It takes abour 30 to 45 minutes to get to airport. It costs RMB20.

    Shenzhen metro system will take you from Lo Hu to shopping malls, parks, art exhibition halls, window of the world and etc. It is very clean and safe to take the metro to travel around Shenzhen. (Written in 2005)

    I revisited Shenzhen end of 2012. I arrived Shenzhen Baoan Airport at 21:30, and experienced my first Shenzhen metro ride from the Airport to my hotel at Shaibu Station. Due to my flight delay, I arrived at the Liojie Interchange station at 23:00 and the metro system stopped taking passengers. I had to spend Y18 to take a taxi to the hotel. It was amazing to see how much changes between 2005 and 2012. The metro infrastructure is much more modern and with the additional 4 lines that link all the way to the Airport and other sub-urban districts.

    Today Shezhen Metro System allows you to travel the city or major attractions without having to take a taxi or buses. During my visit 2012, I did not take any local bus at all because the metro system is too good to be truth!

    Shenzhen Taxi

    by cal6060 Written Jan 14, 2013
    Red Taxi Signboard
    1 more image

    There are two types of taxis in the Shenzhen City, the Green and Red Taxis. The Green taxi is only allowed to travel outside the Special Economic Zone (means outside the City CBD area), and Red Taxis are free to travel everywhere.

    Fare:

    RED: ( Y10 for the first 2KM, Y2.4 for the subsequence KM )

    GREEN : ( Y6 for the first 1.5KM, Y2.4 for the subsequence KM)
    - Travel to Baoan district, Longgang district, Pingshan , Guangming.

    This signboard is taken from Shenzhen Baoan Airport. It means you can take both Red and Green taxis from the Airport, it depends where you are going. For example, if you are going to Luohu, then you have to take the Red Taxi.

    After 23:00 the taxi fare will start with Y16 for the first 3KM.

    On 4.1.2013 morning rush, I took a green taxi from sub-urban town to Shenzhen Baoan Airport, It cost me Y130 + Y10 tips.

    From Luohu Train Station (Luohu HuoCheZhan) follow signs for Hong Kong and you will reach the border checkpoint. It is easy and quick to pass through, taking you straight to the Hong Kong side - Lou Hu now becomes Lo Wu - where you use ATM cash machines, exchange money or purchase travel cards with Chinese RMB and ask English speaking staff any questions.

    The Ferry

    The ferry is the easiest way to get from the Sehkou and the surrounding area of Shenzhen to Hong Kong International Airport. The ferry offers a direct route to the airport that only takes 30 Minutes.

    The ferry terminal has check-in for the Chinese airlines and JAL. Others have to carry their bags onboard the boat. You go through immigration and customs in the terminal then board the ferry, a high speed catamaran. On arrival at the airport ferry terminal, you will find check-in locations for all of the airlines. You then take a bus to the airline terminal.

    ShenZhen Airport to HK via Ferry

    by bpacker Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Ferry Counter@SZ Airport

    If you're short on time and high on cash, then take the most costly transport to HK - the turbo jet ferry@Fuyong Terminal . Taking the ferry means you won't have to:

    1)sit beside a maniac for one hour on the bus from the airport to the customs,
    2) tear your hair out by lining up at the LuoHu customs
    3)share a seat with a fat lady inside the KCR for yet another one hour ride to downtown HK.

    The turbo jet ferry can accomodate about 400 people at a time and it won't get caught in traffic. So if you're keen, get your ticket directly outside the departure gates, ride a 5min bus to Fuyong terminal and hop unto to the vessel. You'll be in Kowloon sipping on dahjeerling at the Peninsula before you know it.

    Note:The Ferry goes to Macau/Kowloon and HK Airport. Get your tix from the counter outside of the departure gates.

    SZ->Macau HK$171
    SZ->HK (Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal, Sheung Wan)HK$185
    SZ->Kowloon (China (HK) Ferry Terminal, Tsimshatsui) HK$185

    First flight from Shenzhen to Shanghai

    The Shenzen Baoan International Airport has an international and a domestic terminals connected to each other. It is cheaper to fly to other parts of China from here than from Hong Kong.

    Near the airport, there is the Fuyong ferry terminal which goes to Hong Kong.

    Easy taxi and bus access from the airport to downtown Shenzen to cross to Hong Kong.
    The airport is connected by an excellent modern highway to Dongguan and Guangzhou.

    This is another easy way to get to Shenzhen but, the last ferry is at 7.30pm. We caught the ferry back from Shenzhen to Kowloon City. There is also a ferry service to Hong Kong Airport and Macau from Shenzhen. Go to Fu Yong Ferry Terminal. There is a free bus shuttle service at Shenzhen airport to the terminal. From the counter at the airport you can buy your ferry ticket and organise the bus shuttle. Fu Yong is about 5 minutes by bus from the airport. The turbo jet takes about an hour. Cost: 202 Yuan
    I have included scanned a scanned of the turbojet brochure which has time schedules, destinations etc(there are 4 pages).

    Turbojet Sea Express offers regular and comfortable ferry services from Hong Kong's airport to Fuyong ferry terminal which is just 5 minutes from Shenzhen airport and about 1 hour from Shenzhen city. This is a good and comfortable way to travel from Hong Kong to Shenzhen and Fuyong, instead of going in by road which is a big hassle and there are pickpockets at the road checkpoint. More information is at the website below and the ferry ticket costs about HK$200 one way. There are also ferry services which travel from Kowloon to Fuyong and back. In general, the ferries are well maintained, comfortable and air-conditioned, plus food and drinks are sold on board.
