Jonny Zhu’s Article:
Hi dears, as a new comer to forum I hope I could help people by sharing what I know especially for those who is a new comer to Shenzhen.
As a Chinese live at Shekou I would mainly focus on Shekou.
I also want to make friends nearby or teach you Chinese for free, not required exchange.
==From Hong Kong airport(HKIA) to Shenzhen==
Option one: by taking ferry transit to Shekou
By doing this you shall not carry immigration formality to enter HKG nor collect your checked in luggage, in case there are check-in baggages from home country, please present the luggage ticket to the ferry counter staff, who will collect the baggage & arrange further check-in onto the ferry.
Usaually after landed you could take the ferry in about 1.5hour – 2.5hours due waiting luggages.
Ferry deaprting 0900, 1015, 1100, 1230,1315,1345, 1430, 1530, 1630, 1730, 1830, 1930, 2030 & 2120(plus 30 mins arriving Shekou)
Detailed flowchart please see at the end **
Option two: by coach or van to Shekou or Shenzhen Bay Port(some 15 mins by car from Shekou)
(quote Andy22222’s )there are cross border vans that leave about every fifteen to twenty minutes and go to Shenzhen Bay and you don’t have to get out the van going through HK and China immigration. The cost is 150HKD, you would take after you transit HK immigration at the airport and collect your bags, after you go through HK customs there are ticket booths (Skylimo and green signage) at both the A and B exit before you make the final turn to where the hordes of people are waiting for arriving passengers. I prefer this method of transport as you don’t have to wait as long and you can be in Shekou/the bridge border in less than an hour.
If there are two of you, you can take a taxi for about 350HKD to Shenzhen Bay and walk through HK/China immigration on your own.
There are also some coach with destination to Shekou(ie, Nanhai hotel) run by the travel agent
Sometimes I hired a van to pick up my clients from HKIA to Shekou by RMB 700/trip.
Shekou border closes by the last ferry & Shenzhen Bay Port closes by 1200pm, if later can only go through HuangGang which is the only 24 hours border.
