Buses to Guangdong Province, China

Buses are a convenient way to reach many cities in Guangdong province, especially places other than Shenzhen, Dong Guan, and Guangzhou, since the train only primarily runs to those cities.

There are three main bus companies which operate cross-border between HK and Guangdong. (I’m sure there are many other smaller ones as well.)

If you are looking for information on service to SZ Airport check my previous post.

If you are looking for service from Hong Kong Airport to China, there is an official page for mainland coaches.

Trans-Island runs routes to many locations, and the web site has a nice English page. They operate services from both HK downtown locations and HK Airport.

I took the CTS bus once from HK to GZ and don’t recommend it at all. It was a slow journey with lots of honking and switching lanes on the highway between SZ and GZ. Total travel time was about 3.5 – 4 hours and I was just praying to get there the whole time. The only good thing was that it dropped me off directly at my hotel in GZ.
