How much the taxi fare should I expect?
If you take the cab, the fare is CNY 50 to 60 in the day time.
Besides, the last schedule of bus no.911 is 22:00.
So from Hong Kong, you can pass the custom and arrive at Futian Port. Then take a taxi to go to Futian Bus Station and take direct long-distance bus to the destination. As I know, the bus schedules are from 07:00 to 21:30.
