Would like to go to Taishan from Hong Kong on Thursday 5 December. Starting point is the Sky City Marriott. Don't mind taking bus, ferry, or rail or some combination of the three. Am experienced with getting around in China, including Guangdong, but have not previously been to Taishan/Taicheng.
Caveat is that, unfortunately, I will not be traveling light, and will have one large suitcase plus my carry-on bag. A best case scenario would be finding a cross-border bus at the Hong Kong airport. The fall-back plan if all else fails, would be a bus to Guangzhou and transferring to a Taicheng bus there.
I live much of each year in China and am returning from my annual US visit. This is my "Return to Kunming" trip, but I wanted to detour and visit Taishan along the way if possible. Plan a side trip to the Kaiping Diaolous. Will fly out of Guangzhou (to Kunming) in about a week.
I see a similar question was asked here back in March by someone else and never received an answer. Am still hoping to get some assistance from TripAdvisor members who may have begun following the forum since then, but am also researching the question via other sources.
If I find out something elsewhere, I'll return and post it here. Will also gladly give a report after the trip is done.
Many thanks.Edited: 10:08 am, November 18, 2013
