Best and quickest way from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen from Bill.L's blog


Catch airport bus A43 and get off at the Sheung Shui Stop, then catch the East Rail Line train to either Lok Ma Chau or Lo Wu border crossings, Bus costs HK$30.90 (or buy a Octopus Card in the airport's Arrival Hall) and takes around 90 minutes. Note you can buy the bus ticket on the bus but must pay the exact amount of HK$ because the bus driver will not give you change. See map below.

To catch the bus you need to take Exit B (Arrival Hall B) after clearing customs and walk straight ahead, exiting out of the airport via the ramp then immediately turn right and you will see the airport public bus terminal (Ground Transportation Centre). Keep walking down the ramp and as you approach the bottom, look back on to the left and you'll see the ticket offices of 3 bus operators where you can buy your bus ticket before boarding your bus.

To cross the border at Lok Ma Chau, just follow the signs through the Hong Kong border check point, go through China Customs into mainland China and you’ll be in Futian Port. In the same building is Futian Kou An Metro Station, this metro station is part of line 4 which connects with line 1. Lok Ma Chau border crossing is newer than the one at Lo Wu and can be quieter, however both border crossings do get really busy during weekends, holidays and during the morning and afternoon ‘rush hours’ of people heading home/to work.

The border crossing from Hong Kong into Shenzhen at Lo Wu (LuoHu} is straightforward, it’s more or less going through two buildings on either side of the border connected via an enclosed bridge, for all purposes it feels like the same building. After departing the train simply follow the signs, have a completed departure card and your passport ready to show the Hong Kong border officer as you officially leave HK, then walk more or less straight ahead for a few minutes to reach the China mainland border officers. Show your completed arrival card and passport. After passing that point you’ll walk straight ahead and be in Luohu, where, if you are outside at ground level, you’ll see a large public square to one side of which will be Shenzhen Railway Station and to the other side Luohu Commercial City (the railway station is the longer of the two buildings) and two levels beneath you will be the Metro (aka subway). To catch a taxi, if you are at ground level, go down one level and kind of underneath the Luohu Commercial building you’ll find a large taxi rank.

Hong Kong Airport buses  are high quality, double deck buses with air-conditioning and luggage racks.
The buses run daily from 7:00am to 12:00am with a frequency every 15-30 minutes
