Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Beyond

Jump to last reply

I am booked on a flight to Hong Kong next March, as the start of a month-long visit to China. I have booked the hotel for the first two nights in Hong Kong then I intend to continue on to the mainland, probably commencing with a flight to Guilin.

I have noticed that flights from Shenzhen to Guilin are significantly cheaper and at an earlier time of day than from HKG.

I would appreciate advice on the simplest way to get from Hong Kong Island or Kowloon to Shenzhen airport. If necessary we will spend a night in Shenzhen en-route. I will be buying an Octopus card, so the MTR is available.

As an allied question, we will both be over 65 and I noticed that may we may qualify for free travel on the MTR. Does anyone know if that would include the Airport Express and the train across the border to Shenzhen?

I am arranging visas for China in advance (we Are Australian citizens). When taking the MTR to Shenzhen where and how are the border formalities done and how much time should we allow for that?

Cheers, Alan, Australia.
