Shenzhen is shoppers paradise. Hong Kong people tell you to examine everything you buy. However, it can happen that you will get caught with 2nd rate goods. Tours (as for groups) are no longer moving in and out of Hong Kong. on a Canadian Passport, I had to apply for an individual passport visa for China. It cost me about $760. Au$ The visa is for 5 years and multiple entry. Getting to Shenzen from Hung Hom (Hong Kong) on the train was extremely easy. Except they warn you go get on the right train to Lo Wu. The trains are so simple to navigate. The Octapus card is a great way of getting around. (Taxi's are cheap too), food is dear in Hong Kong. In Shenzen prices are similar (maybe) a little less but not that much less. But prices for all the bags, belts etc. is cheaper than in Hong Kong. Many Hong Kong People go to Shenzen to shop. From Hong Kong (Hung Hom station) it takes about 45 minutes to get to the border in Shenzen. It is a bit of a walk from the train to the Customs and Immigration area. Visit Hong Kong (even if there are riots) because a nice area to visit. people are very nice and polite. Further, i can advise that Jane at Grayline tours (in the Harbour Plaza Metropolis in Hong Kong) is extremely helpful. You can chat to her. She is actually born in London of Hong Kong parentage and lives in Hong Kong. Very very helpful in all aspects of Hong Kong (or Shenzen) and I highly recommend her. I do hope her employer gives her a great Christmas bonus - she deserves it.

Even though I had read good reviews about Shenzhen I was extremely apprehensive and uncertain about going on this trip. We were 2 couples, our husbands reluctantly agreed to come! I contacted I IVY and told her the bags we were interested in seeing and she responded immediately. We travelled by metro about 40 mins from Hung Hom station... we then had to q for our visas which took an hour approx. They cost about 40 euro each. We proceeded to the shopping plaza and found Ivy' s shop. Do not respond to the many touts who will try to divert you to their shops. IVY 2054 only! And WOW! ALL MAKES OF BAGS EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY! Ivy is so helpful and so patient. Her bags are the real deal! Be prepared to bargain! Thank you Ivy, I totally recommend you! And Ivy then brought us to Jason's shop for glasses.... sun glasses and prescription.... and again..Jason was so so helpful... we bought several pairs of fabulous sun glasses and also prescription which only take 30 mins.... thank you Jason... JASON.... IVY.....your goods are top quality! There are many many shops in Shenzhen I recommend that you look no further than Ivy and Jason.... one of our husband's also purchased silk ties from Ivy. The whole day was an experience but well worth the effort. Go early and leave ahead of returning crowds.

A lot of reviews on the web on how to get a 72hrs visa to visit Shenzen from Hong Kong to either do some shopping or business. The best way to get Lo Wu is by metro (MTR) and only costs about £20 return from most locations in Hong Kong. I spent 3 wasted trips using the information posted on many sites, so hopefully this valuable information will save time and money. You will have to pay at the border approx £16 for the visa itself and a lot cheaper than a full visa which costs £125 from the UK. However you cannot travel outside Shenzen with the visa issued at the border so be aware of this. I have attached a MTR map and the latest info given to us by immigration. Good luck and enjoy your trip.
