For anyone who is going to Shenzhen, I do not recommend the bus ride from Hong Kong. It may seem appealing because of the direct drop off at some of the major hotels, but it’s definitely not worth it. The ticket agent also failed to tell us that there was a transfer as well, so time was lost waiting for a bus change.
 The bus ride is very unsafe, with small shuttles acting as buses and the drivers having no regard for their passengers. I had a very scary and nauseating experience on a recent bus ride from Hong Kong to Shenzhen. Not only was the fair 4 times as much as the MTR, it was horrifically scary. Passengers were begging the driver to slow down, since everyone was scared for their lives. He was constantly on his cell phone, so he was obviously distracted with calls instead of paying attention to the road.
 In my opinion, the MTR from Hong Hom to Lo Wu station would have been a little more of a hassle but at least it’s the safest route.

Upon landing, you are suggested to take shuttle bus no.A43, get off at Sheung Shui Railway Station. Then transfer to East Rail Line to arrive at Lok Ma Chau. The whole way takes around 75 mins. And the ticket fare is 54.3 HKD per person. After arriving, pass the border and you will get to Futian Port, Shenzhen.

In addition, from the port to Shajing Town, it's ok for you to take a taxi. It costs around CNY 150 in usual time. You can easily find one when you arriving at the Futian Port. Don't worry. :)

Hello, the direct cross-border coach can be a good choice. You can easily take one at the Coach Terminal, T2, HKIA. There are many schedules to Baoan (170HKD, 2 hours), and you should get off at Hengfeng Haiyue International Hotel. Then ride city bus no. M413 to Shajing Jiedaoban stop and walk to your destination, or straightly take a cab there with the fare of CNY60-70. Luggage can be taken onboard. No worry!

Joao, there are transit bus from Wai Chai to Huanggang Port. After you pass the port, you can walk around 70 meters to take no. 326 bus from Huanggang to People's Square East Station. Then take Longhua line (subway) to Shenzhen North Railway Station. Getting out from Exit C and walk around 250 meters, you can find the railway station.
