HK airport to Shenzhen

I have a few questions. My flight will arrive at Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1 at 7 pm, will I have enough time to catch the last ferry? If yes, where is the landing point for boarding? Do I need to go through customs?

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

Victor, thank you for this information. Just to confirm, this is for cross border bus services ( CTS, E&E, etc,) direct to Shenzhen Bay port right? And not the regular HK bus routes to the City of HK.
Answered by Victor | May. 31, 2023 18:00

Yes, of course. Have a nice trip!

Can I take a taxi from HK airport to Lo Wu control point?

I'm travelling from HK airport and would like to cross the border at Lo wu control point.

Can a taxi ride reach the control point? or I need to take a taxi to nearest station of metro first then take metro to Lo wu station in order to access the Lo wu control point?

Answered by John | May. 18, 2023 20:27

I'm afraid no. Taxi is forbidden in Lp Wu area. You may take a taxi to Sheung Shui MTR Station and then take the MTR to reach the control point.
Answered by jeang | May. 19, 2023 20:30

Thank you very much for your information. I'll take taxi to Shueng shui Station first then connect to Lowu.

The most convenient way is to take a ferry from HK airport to SZ airport directly. You should go to the ferry ticketing counter at Transfer Area E2 and DO NOT go through immigration.

I know they accept cash in HK dollars. But I'm not clear if they accept the visa cards or not. Anyway, just prepare some HK cash to avoid any troubles.
