This is a followup to my previous post about flying out of Shenzhen and taking a bus to the airport. I used to fly out of SZX regularly to go to places in China; Chongqing, Kunming, Guilin, Xi’an, etc. The flights to these places from Hong Kong were either limited or too expensive.
There are direct buses from Hong Kong to Shenzhen Airport operated by the Chinalink bus company. I like this bus because it’s run smoothly and on-time. They also go through the convenient Shenzhen Bay port, where you just walk across the border, as opposed to Huang Guang, where you need to get on and off the bus twice at the border.
(use google translate if you can’t read chinese, the site is pretty self explanatory)
Buses leave as early as 6am from Kowloon Station near the Broadway and Fortress electronic stores (make a right at the top of the escalator if you come from the MTR.)
I’ve yet to take the bus from Wan Chai but according to the web site it picks up at Fenwick St & Lockhart Rd.
There’s a cross border coach station at the mall and you can buy tickets there, I never had a sold out situation. The bus trip takes about 1.5 hours to reach the airport. I would probably leave about 3-3.5 hours before the time of your flight to board the bus.
Tickets cost $110 from Kowloon Station, $120 from Wan Chai.
Of course there are other ways to reach SZ airport, such as going to Lo Wu and taking a bus or taxi (~150RMB) from there, but this is the easiest way I know.
