    This is a must and to master the MTR is not difficult – It will take you anywhere and everywhere – it is recommended you buy an Octopus Card at the airport and load it with whatever you think you will need depending on the time you are there - not to worry the Card has a deposit of $50 which is returned less a card fee of $11 and also all the unused money on the card – you can use the card on the MTR, Buses, Taxi’s Restaurants and Shops – it is the way to go

    There are immigrations to clear if you are going to Shenzhen from Hong Kong. So it is advisable that you should reach the high speed station in HK early, and that you have your passport ready as well.
    There are no food stalls in the waiting area, so once you pass immigration, you can be hungry if you had not eaten. So eat before you clear immigration!
    Of course, you can also eat in the train, but beware: they much prefer paying by QRCodes/scanning, and if you pay cash, pay exact amount because they do not give change.

    Overall trip was okay, but service standards much to be desired.

    This is a truly excellent service which, depending the timetable and stops, takes 50- 65 mins fro Kowloon West to Guangzhou South. I pre-book via Trip.com for which I pay a booking fee and then another moderate fee when picking-up my ticket at Kowloon West station. It is important for a first time user to be careful to allow sufficient time for ticket collection, HK and PRC immigration processes. Security is a lot less stressful than for travelling by air. This is in my opinion the best way to go from HK to GZ. Two metro lines operate from Guangzhou South so the notoriously troublesome GZ road traffic may be eliminated or reduced depending on a travellers hinal destination address.
