Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen – The Complete How-To Guide

Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen Transfer

Shenzhen is located in the Guangdong Province of China and it is connected to the north of Hong Kong. Since Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China, there is a customs border separating Hong Kong and Shenzhen. All foreign travellers going from Hong Kong to Shenzhen will need to present their passports and/or China Entry Visa. If you are planning to visit Shenzhen via Hong Kong Airport, you should first apply for a China Entry Visa before your trip. This will save you a lot of time and hassle trying to get your visa after arriving in Hong Kong.

Shenzhen is a major business, technology and manufacturing hub in Southern China. While many visitors go there from Hong Kong for sightseeing and shopping, most of the time people go to Shenzhen for business purposes. If you need to go to Shenzhen via Hong Kong Airport, there are numbers of transportation options available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

After reading this article, you will be able to choose the best transportation going from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen base on your needs and preferences. Depending on your destination in Shenzhen, the duration of the transfer takes anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours. The more affordable transportation methods will generally take longer and require you to get off and on the same or different vehicles multiple times along the way. If you value your time and do not want any hassle, we have services that comfortably and directly get you from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen destination.

Below is a list of transportation options going from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen, ranging from the most affordable (cheapest) to the most convenient:

1) Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen By Public Bus And MTR (Metro)

The cheapest way to go from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen is to travel completely by public bus and MTR (called the Metro in Shenzhen). After arriving in Hong Kong International Airport, exit through B Exit after clearing customs. You will then arrive at the Arrival Hall B. Keep walking forward and exit through the ramp. Turn right after exiting the building and you will see the airport public bus terminal.

Hong Kong Airport Public Bus Terminal

Board public bus route number A43 (To Fanling) which operates by Long Win from 7:00 am to midnight. The fare will be HKD $30.90 and you do need to prepare exact change if you don’t have a MTR Octopus Card. Take this bus to Sheung Shui bus stop. The duration is about 1 hour long not including any waiting time for the bus. You will then walk to the Sheung Shui MTR station which is only a few metres away from the bus stop. Board the MTR towards Lo Wu Station, which is the next stop. The duration is about 10 minutes not including any waiting time. The fare is about HKD $20.

After getting to Lo Wu Station, you will need to get off and walk to the Hong Kong Immigration building. Once cleared Hong Kong Immigrations, you will then walk to the China Immigrations building. Depending on the time of day you are travelling, this process may take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Many travellers use the Lo Wu checkpoint to enter China so it can be extremely crowded and queues can be very long during peak hours. Also note that there are lots of walking involved. You will also need proper China Visitor Visa to clear China Immigrations.

Once you have cleared China Immigration and Customs, you can then walk to the Shenzhen Metro Luohu Station that is nearby. You can find it by following the signs. By using the Shenzhen Metro, you can reach almost anywhere in Shenzhen if you know which station to go to. Provided that you don’t mind a bit of walking and asking for directions. It is a very big system with many different lines and interchanges. You should do more research on which station that is closest to your destination in Shenzhen before your trip. Click here for a map of the Shenzhen Metro system.


  • Very low cost. The Shenzhen Metro is very affordable. You will get to your destination in Shenzhen from Hong Kong Airport using this method with under HKD $100.


  • This takes the longest time. Depending on the time of day of your travel, you may spend a long time at the immigration borders of each side. The public bus ride takes roughly 1 hour already. Also, Lo Wu isn’t the closest border to China from Hong Kong Airport so you are travelling a longer distance than other transportation methods.
  • Very inconvenient. You will have to get off and on multiple times, stop at all bus and Metro stops along the way, and walk with your luggage through crowded areas of Lo Wu border.
  • You will need to do some research before using the Shenzhen Metro. Otherwise you will waste a lot of time getting off the wrong station or getting on the wrong line.

2) Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen By Cross-Border Coach Services

If doing it completely by public bus and MTR is too much of an hassle for you, your next option is to go from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen via cross-border coach services. These coach services generally will take you to select drop-off locations in Shenzhen via the Lok Ma Chau/Huanggang Checkpoint or Shenzhen Bay Checkpoint.

If you are going to the Shenzhen Bao’an (including Shenzhen Airport), Nanshan or Shekou districts, you will most likely use the Shenzhen Bay Checkpoint. If you are going to the Shenzhen Futian district, you will most likely use the Lok Ma Chau/Huanggang Checkpoint. The coach company will determine which border crossing to use base on your drop-off point.

Service counters for cross-border coach services are located at Hong Kong Airport Terminal 2 counters C10 to C14 (follow signs of Mainland Coaches). These counters are operated by different companies and they have different routes and drop-off points available. Make sure you check with each company to see what works best for your desired destination in Shenzhen.

If non of these services have drop-off points near your hotel in Shenzhen, you may choose to be dropped off at the border crossing. After crossing the border, you can take a taxi directly to your destination. This will be more expensive than using the coach service completely but you will save the time from finding your way from the drop-off points.

Cross-border coach services generally operates every hour from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. Some services have more frequent departures (as fast as every 15 minutes) during peak periods. Fare to the borders is around HKD $100. Fare to drop-off points inside Shenzhen range from HKD $180 to $220.

You will board the coach at Terminal 2 just behind the counters. The duration to the border takes roughly 30 minutes as it is mostly highway from the airport. Once you reach the Hong Kong side of the checkpoint, you  have to get your luggage and get off the coach. You will have to walk a few minutes, up and down a few stairs along the way. If you are using the Lok Ma Chau/Huanggang crossing, you will have to board the coach again after clearing Hong Kong Immigrations. The coach will then take you to the China side of the checkpoint where you will have to take your luggage and get off the coach again for China Immigrations. If you are using the Shenzhen Bay crossing, you do not need to board and get off this coach for a second time because the Hong Kong and China Immigrations are in the same building.

After clearing China Immigrations you will be collected by an agent of the coach company who will take you to board a different coach for the rest of the journey in Shenzhen. The agent recognizes you by the colourful sticker on your chest that was giving to you when you purchase your ticket. Be extra careful of scammers that pretend to be agents of coach companies and approach you for extra fee. Real agents usually have uniforms or badges and do not ask you for money.


  • Relatively cheap. You can reach Shenzhen from Hong Kong Airport for under HKD $250 in most cases.
  • Quite well organized. It will take away a lot of confusion and hassle if your destination in Shenzhen is nearby one of the drop-off points.


  • Very inconvenient with heavy luggage. You will have to get off the coach with your luggage and walk some distance to the Hong Kong Immigrations and do it again for the China Immigrations. This can be a huge hassle especially after a long haul flight to Hong Kong.
  • Only makes sense if the coach service has a drop-off point near your hotel or destination in Shenzhen. If not, you will have to catch a taxi to get there from the drop-off point.
  • Long border crossing time during peak hours at both checkpoints. If you are travelling between 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, expect to spend around 30 to 45 minutes to clear both immigrations.

3) Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen By SkyPier Ferry

Another option to go from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen is by ferry. SkyPeir is the ferry terminal inside Hong Kong International Airport for arriving passengers to transfer to multiple cities within the Pearl River Delta and Macau. SkyPier has two routes to Shenzhen: one is to Shenzhen Shekou Terminal and another to Shenzhen Fuyong Terminal (connected to Shenzhen Bao’an Airport).

If you want to transfer to Shenzhen using the ferry, you do not go through Hong Kong Immigrations nor collect your baggage. After arriving and exiting the gate, follow signs to the Transfers Area E2 or Ferries to Mainland. At the Transfers Area E2, you can find counters to purchase ferry tickets. The company that operates ferries to Shenzhen is called CKS.

When you buy your ticket, make sure you give the staff your airline baggage tags. They will collect your baggage and place them onboard the ferry for you. For service to Shekou Terminal, fare is HKD $220 for adults. For service to Fuyong Terminal, fare is HKD $295 for adults.

The duration of the ferry ride is about 30 minutes to Shekou Terminal and 40 minutes to Fuyong Terminal. Once arriving at the terminal in Shenzhen, you will have to take a taxi onward to your hotel or other destination.

Below are the ferry departure times for each terminal:

To Shenzhen Shekou Terminal
Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen Shekou Ferry Timetable

To Shenzhen Fuyong (Bao’an Airport) Terminal
Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen Airport Ferry Timetable

Please note that you will have to purchase your ticket 60 minutes before the departure time of the ferry. For example, if you arrive at the ticket counter at 10:30 am for Shekou Terminal, you won’t be able to catch the 11:00 am ferry. You will have to wait for the 12:30 pm one. This increases your wait time to 2 hours. Plus another 30 minute ferry ride, your total time to Shekou Terminal is 2.5 hours long.


  • Convenient if you are going to the Shekou/Nanshan District or Shenzhen Bao’an Airport. You don’t have to clear Hong Kong Immigrations or collect your luggage. All you have to do is clear China Immigrations and collect your luggage after arriving in Shenzhen.
  • A cost effective way to get to Shenzhen Airport. For under HKD $300 you can get there from Hong Kong Airport directly without the hassle of border crossing.


  • Only makes sense if you are going to Shekou or Bao’an Airport. If you need to go to the Futian District (the city centre and financial area of Shenzhen), you will need to take a 45 minute taxi ride or a 1.5 hour Metro ride. This makes the total journey the longest among all transportation options.
  • Long waiting time. Your waiting time for the next ferry is at least 60 minutes. If you arrive in between two ferry departure times, you may need to wait up to 2 hours for the next one due to the 60 minute check-in restriction. Adding on the ferry ride and transportation to your hotel, the total journey can take up to 4 hours during rush hour.

4) Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen By Taxi

All the above transportation methods from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen sound too confusing and difficult to you? A somewhat better solution is to travel complete by taxi. You will get to your destination faster most of the time and you will avoid some of the unnecessary stoppage and waiting time. However, you will still have to get off the taxi at Hong Kong side of the border checkpoint, walk across the border, and board another taxi in Shenzhen.

After arriving at Hong Kong Airport, all you have to do is go to the taxi station located outside Arrival Hall A. Exit the arrival hall and turn left and you will see a line of taxis and people queuing for them. Note that during peak hours and early mornings, the wait for a vacant taxi can be extremely long.

Hong Kong Airport Taxi Station Lineup

The above picture was taken by a traveller waiting for taxi in the early morning of a weekday. As you can see, the queue time can be very long so be prepared if you decide to use a taxi from Hong Kong Airport.

Depending on which part of Shenzhen you plan to go to, you can choose to cross via Lok Ma Chau Border – Huanggang Crossing or Shenzhen Bay Crossing. Like previously stated, the Huanggang Crossing is good if you plan to go to Shenzhen Futian District also known as the financial/downtown district of Shenzhen. If you plan to go to the Nanshan or Shekou District, Shenzhen Bay Crossing is the best option. Also, Shenzhen Bay is among the closest border crossing from Hong Kong Airport. Taxi cost from Hong Kong airport to these two border crossings should be around HKD $200.

The Lok Ma Chau – Huanggang Crossing is the only Shenzhen border crossing that operates 24 hours a day. It is one of the most popular crossings for people travelling by coach buses, taxis, and private cars. Unlike the Lok Ma Chau – Futian Crossing, the Huanggang Crossing does not have a connected MTR/Metro system and is mainly for ground transportation travellers. The big drawback about the Lok Ma Chau – Huanggang Crossing is that the two immigration offices are separated by a fairly long road/bridge. When arriving at this checkpoint, you will have to get off at the Hong Kong Immigration building and go through Hong Kong Customs. Once done that, you will have to buy a ticket and take a yellow shuttle bus to the China Immigration building. The shuttle ride is roughly 7 minutes long. After clearing China Customs, you will exit the building and try to get a taxi in the taxi queue.

The Shenzhen Bay Crossing is much easier compared the the Huanggang Crossing. Both Hong Kong and China immigration officers are located in the same building. You don’t need to take a shuttle or walk long distance to the other building like most other crossings between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. After clearing both customs inside the same building, you can exit and line up to get a taxi. Shenzhen Bay Crossing is a newer and more organized checkpoint and it is less chaotic than the Huanggang Crossing. Hour of operations for the Shenzhen Bay Crossing is from 6:30 AM to midnight daily.

Taxi fare in Shenzhen depends on how far your destination is. In general, you can get to almost anywhere within Shenzhen for under $100 RMB.

Please note that most taxi drivers at the border crossings will avoid charging by the metre. Instead, they will ask you where you want to go and tell you a fixed price and see if you are willing to pay that. You should do some research about the estimate taxi fare from the crossing of your choice to your destination before going. This way you won’t be scammed as it is very common for Shenzhen taxi drivers to charge higher prices to foreigners.


  • Quite simple and flexible for a relatively reasonable price.
  • You can set your own schedule and go to Shenzhen any time you wish during the day.


  • Long taxi queues both in Hong Kong Airport and outside the Shenzhen immigration buildings.
  • Very inconvenient if you travel via the Lok Ma Chau – Huanggang Crossing. You will have to hop on and off the connector shuttle bus with your luggage.
  • Immigration buildings can be very crowded and chaotic inside. Especially during weekends and public holidays.
  • Foreigners are often scammed by taxi drivers by charging a higher price or going around cycles to ramp up the bill.

5) Hong Kong Airport To Shenzhen By Private Limousine

If all the above methods to go from Hong Kong Airport to Shenzhen look like too much hassle and confusion for you, you are definitely not alone. Most of us value our time and comfort. Especially after a long International flight. Private limousine transfer to Shenzhen is the ultimate way to go if you want to save time and not have to worry about the confusing details.

You will be picked up by your dedicated English speaking driver at the arrival hall. Your driver will hold a sign up with your name so you will recognize him/her easily. After meeting with the driver, you will be taken to your private luxury van parked inside the airport. The most frequently used vehicle for transfer to Shenzhen is a Toyota Alphard luxury minivan. It is one of the most favourite vehicles used by celebrities and officials because of its spaciousness and comfort.

Unlike a taxi, you have tons of room for luggage in your private limousine. So for two passengers each with two pieces of suitcase, a private limousine is the best option both for storage and seating comfort.

The most important feature for a private transfer to Shenzhen is that you don’t have to step off your vehicle at all. Not even for border crossing. A truly cross-border private vehicle has licenses for both Hong Kong and China, so it can go directly into Shenzhen and reach your destination non-stop. You will clear customs inside your vehicle and never have to break a sweat. This feature alone can save you lots of time and hassle. You don’t have to walk in the immigration building with your luggage, fight for space with other travellers, or wait in line at all.

After clearing customs inside the car, you will be taken directly to your destination. Your driver will then help you unload your luggage and wish you a pleasant stay in Shenzhen.

Here at Hong Kong Shuttle, we are the most popular website to book local Hong Kong airport transfers as well as private limousines going from Hong Kong to Shenzhen. If you want an executive level transfer to your destination in Shenzhen, we can book you with a licensed cross-border vehicle with English-speaking driver within 12 hours.


  • The easiest and hassle-free way to go to Shenzhen from Hong Kong Airport. Just tell us where you need to go and we will take care of the rest.
  • The fastest way to go to Shenzhen. Non-stop point to point transfer directly to your destination.
  • No need to get off your vehicle at all as you can clear customs within the car. This eliminates all the inconveniences of border crossing.


  • Costly compared to other modes of transportation. Licensed cross-border limousines and dedicated drivers are expensive to maintain.

    I will be travelling to Hongkong with family next month (4 adults, 1 toddler). Will arrive in HKIA around 4 PM. What is the best transportation for me to go to senzhen from HKIA? If by taxi, how much it will cost me and how long? Thanks.

    • Hi Karen. For taxi, the cost depends on where you will need to go in Shenzhen. It ranges quite a lot and you may have a difficult time getting a taxi willing to go to the border from airport. You may want to consider the ferry from airport instead. The best and easiest way is to use our private limousine service.

  • Sheila W

  • رائد عبد الحميد

    hello Mr. Ron So

    • No you will need to enter Hong Kong if you want to take the bus. Only ferry will allow you to do this without Hong Kong Visa.

  • Brando

    Greetings Mr. Ron So,

    I will be flying into Hong Kong from the U.S. and plan to use the Ferry to reach Shenzhen. Your information was great on how to do this. But will I have time to exchange USD to HKD (and RMB) before I go purchase my ticket? Or will it be too late as my luggage will be removed from the plane before CKS can pick it up for the ferry due to my time at the money exchange?

    • Hi Brando, yes you can do exchange while you wait to board. I believe there is an exchange booth right outside the CKS ticketing office.

  • Casey Strong

    Hello Mr. Ron, I have been in Hong Kong on one previous occasion and will return in February after a short stay in Shenzhen. I wonder if I could ask your opinion of my idea.
    We will be leaving Kuala Lumpur should I fly to Shenzhen airport directly or fly to HKIA and transfer to Shenzhen using MRT.
    I thought the best route would be MRT to Hong Kong Station and then transfer for Louhu line.
    Thank You.

    Hi Mr. Ron
    I am travelling with my wife and 5 month old daughter from Romania to Xiamen via Qatar-HK-Shenzhen..so not an easy thing! Can we try with taxi or only the limousine would suit us? I mean do we have a chance to not wait all way long in the queues,considering that we travel with a baby…any sugestions?
    Thank you very much

  • John Mak

    So basically, according to you, everything is “very inconvenient” except the product that you are selling.

    I took the subway, the ferry, and the private limousine and all these options are quite convenient actually. The ferry, you just need to check the schedule in advance. You will never wait 2 hours. That would be just ridiculous. The subway can be also ok. There are some special waiting lines for foreigners so you don’t need to wait behind all the chinese people. I wait less than 5 min to pass the border at Luohu…. And the subway is very easy to use. It is not as negative as this page suggest.

    Hi I have been to book a private minivan through your company to Shenzhen. What rather disturbs me is how it can take you 24 hours to confirm this reservation. During these 24 hours, I will be in transit with limited email access, and therefore will very likely not know until I arrive if I have been successful. Furthermore, I am left with no time to make alternative arrangements if I am unsuccessful.
    it would be helpful, also, if this was pointed out prior to making the booking, at least with full disclosure, I would be in a position to consider other alternatives.

    Any advice, or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Is it possible to get the 5-day Visa On Arrival as a Canadian-born citizen (Canadian Passport) at the Shekou Port terminal? I am thinking of taking the ferry from the HK airport rather than crossing at the land border at Lo Wu. Please advise! Thank you!

    Hi Ron, I land at Hong Kong airport from Australia at 10pm and will be ordering a limo to The Grand Hyatt in Luohu Shenzhen. Will I make it in time to the Luohu Border before mid night. I have my visa but I believe the border closes at midnight,.

    • Hi Ann. For cross border transfers via limo, you will not go through Luohu Border as it is for passengers travelling by train only. You will most likely go through Huanggang Border, which works 24 hours.
