There are modern luxury coaches that run from various pick-up points (mostly hotels) in GZ that cross the border into various destinations in HK inc. airport, Disneyland, and the main districts such as Central, Kowloon, etc.
The buses are modern, clean, and quite comfortable. They are never full usually unless it is peak travel time or there are major events.
The bus heads from Guangzhou to the Shenzhen Hong Kong border at Shenzhen Bay where you disembark (with luggage), cross the border through customs, then get back on a bus to complete the journey. The bus company has guides who will point you in the right direction.
Going through customs is the normal process of exiting China customs, then through Hong Kong customs after which you exit the building and veer slightly right where you will see lots of buses waiting. Simply look for your company, show your ticket and they’ll guide you to the right bus to continue the journey. If you are going HK- GZ it’s much the same process.
Journey Time: around 180-220mins
Cost: 100 RMB (to/from the HK airport 210 RMB)
Upside: In many cases, it takes you from your current hotel and terminates at your next hotel or very near to your destination. Saving on taxi/metro costs and time. Luggage is easy.
Downside: crossing the border at Shenzhen Bay, sometimes is quick, sometimes slow. On average it takes 30 minutes.
