bus / train from Hanoi to Hong Kong

Thank you all for the most valuable information.

Dose anyone knows if there is a bus or train service from Hanoi (or Sapa) to Hong Kong?

I will have 48 hours.

Since you have only 48 hours, it would be virtually impossible to make this trip via land. You can take a combination of buses and trains to get to Guangzhou and take a train from there to Kowloon. From Kowloon you can get to just about anywhere else in Hong King via ferries or other public transit. You should also bear in mind that the vast majority of Hong Kong is a collection of islands therefore making air the only truly practical way to get there. If you had a couple of weeks then it might be fun to take a leisurely trip through mainland China to Hong Kong but 2 days isn't nearly enough time.

Very easily done by bus from Ha Noi via NanNing.

Drop me an e-mail to the address below and I will send you a detailed route planner that will get you there within your schedule.

Don't forget you need a Visa from the 'charming' folks at the Chinese Embassy - this will take 2-4 days depending on your urgency and ability to pay.
