Day trip to Shenzhen

I am a US citizen and plan on spending some time in HKG but I would like to visit Shenzhen for a day for some shopping.

I know I dont have any time to get a chinese visa but I have heard that you can get one at the train station on the way up.

Does any one know about this and how much it costs???

Also where would a good place to go shopping.

Thanks in advance

I don't think US citizens can buy their VISA at the border?

"US citizens are not allowed to get the 'on-the-spot' visa at the Lo Wu border crossing into Shenzhen. But everyone else is."

You might wanna try to book a Shenzhen trip, which includes a group VISA, see:


Note: please contact them and ask to make sure it's also valid for US citizens.
