Shenzhen which is situated at the border of Hong Kong is 35km away from it.
The most convenient way to get there is to hop onto the KCR train from Hong Kong which takes 45 minutes. The train station is right on the Hong Kong Border - Lo Wu Checkpoint on Jianshe Lu.
Basically you can spend 1/2 a day eating and shopping for imitation goods like branded handbags, watches, shoes. You name it, they have it. Don't forget to BARGAIN.
