    I’m very glad to help if you need any guide in Shenzhen, the price for that would be 200CNY.

    We will be coming to HK in November and plan to go to Shenzhenfor 4 days. My husband will be playing golf at Mission Hills. I will be sightseeing/shopping/relaxing.
    1. since we will have a large golf bag with us, what is the most convenient way to get to shenzhen from hong kong or kowloon?
    2. If we stay at the Sheraton resort, is it easy for me to get into the city for shopping/sightseeing? Is it quick to get to the Mission hills golf course? OR
    would it be better staying in the city at the Westin where I have public transportation as you have already pointed out so well, and then is it easy for my husband and golf bag to get to the mission hills golf course.
    3. Are there any individual guides I can contact for a one day orientation of Shenzhen for me?

    By the way, I am very impressed with the depth of many of your answers on this web site.

  • Dear Sir/Madam
    Welcome to Shenzhen!
    1. Three ways to Shenzhen from HongKong:
    a) Take Hong Kong metro to Luohu Port of Shenzhen and take your golf bag with yourselves
    b) Bus is also a good option. There are long-distance buses between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Get off at Luohu Port and go through the customs.

    2. The Sheraton resort is located nearby Dameisha Beach Park in Yantian District in Shenzhen, the scene there is very beautiful. But it’s far from the downtown. It will take you at least two hours to the city center by taxi with the expense of about CNY200. And it won’t be easy to find a taxi.
    It will take you a long time to go to Mission Hills by taxi or bus if you stay at Sheraton resort. And there are no direct buses to Mission Hills. By the way, the traffic there could be bad.
    In my opinion, Sheraton resort is a place suitable for leisure, you can enjoy the sea water there. But it’s not good option for shopping and sightseeing.

    3. If you like, we will recommend individual guide for you. Wish you a good holiday in Shenzhen.

    Best Regards

    Hi, I am a Singaporean planning to travel with my vietnamese girlfriend to Shenzhen & Zhuhai. Below are some doubts that I need to clarify:-

    1. My vietnames girlfriend hold a China Visa valid from 20.08.2010 to 20.11.2010 (she has not been to China, she applied the VISA in August but we postpone our trip), we are travelling between 17th to 21st November 2010. Is the VISA still valid for entry on 17.11.10? Or does she need to re-apply the VISA. Is there any problem travel to-and fro Shenzhen and Zhuhai, any special visa required?

    2. Upon arriving at Shenzeng International Airport on 17.11.2010 @ 1120 hr by Shenzhen Airlines from Ho Chi Minh Citty, what is the best and convenient way to get to Zhuhai Gongbei Port. Please provide cost for the options.

Are these buses on different timimg, why so many different number for the same route? What is the bus number if we are taking the bus @ 1240 hr. Where can we buy the tickets, do we need to buy the tickets in advance and do we buy the ticket in advance? Can we buy the bus ticket online? Can you advise the website of the ticketing office?

    4. Is the intercity bus comfortable? What is the other option? How much does a Taxi cost from Shenzhen International Airport to ZhuHai Changan Good World Hotel located at 327 Lianhua Road, Gongbei.

    Hi brooks…
    can you explain how to go to downtown shenzhen from the shenzhen international airport? by metro… because i need to go to guo mao metro station from the airport… is there any metro near the shenzhen international airport? thankz

  • connie

    Hi Sir,
    There is no metro near Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport. If you want to go to Guomao metro station, you can take bus No. 330 and get off at Science Museum, then take the metro to Guomao metro station. It’ll take about 10 minutes by metro.

    Shenzhen Maps

    Shenzhen Metro & Shenzhen Metro Maps

    Shenzhen Baoan International Airport Bus Station Guide,Airport Express,Public Buses

    Best way to go to Guomao Station is take bus No. 330 and get off at Science Museum
    The distance between Science Museum and Science Museum Station is 10meters only.
    You may rest assured!

  • D

    Hi connie…
    do you mean take the 330 bus from the shenzhen airport and get off at science museum?
    is the metro near the bus stop or still far?
    how about the airport bus? will they stop at metro station?
    and how long will it take from airport to the nearest metro station?
    maybe i could take the nearest metro station from the airport…

    Hello, I have a flight from HKIA @ 9:20am. Can you please advise what is the fastest way to HKIA from ShenZhen airport as I understand that the FuYong Terminal first ferry to HKIA Skypier is at 8:30am which does not give me sufficient time to catch my flight. I am travelling alone with a golf club and a luggage, so travelling by train via LuoWu would be incnvenient. Any suggestion for me to get to HKIA by 7:30am from ShenZhen ? How long does it take and how much would it cost if using a taxi or private transport. Any recommendation on company providing such services in ShenZhen airport ?

    Hi brook! We will be in shenzhen on august 27 and 28. Our flight back home (philippines) would be from Hong Kong on august 29 at 10:15am. I would like to ask for your advice if it would be better to go to Hong Kong on aug. 28 to wait for our flight the following day or to go directly to HKIA from Shenzhen via ferry on the 29th. I understand that we have to be at the skypier 2 hours before our flight. The 1st ferry departs shekou at 7:45am arriving HKIA at 8:15am. Exactly 2 hours before our flight. Would our time be sufficient for the transfers? We have nothing to do in Hong Kong so we would prefer to go to HKIA directly from shenzhen if our time would be enough. Also, we will be taking a low cost carrier airline. What is the immigration procedure for passengers from shenzhen directly to HKIA? Please help us decide. Thanks in advance.
