shantou to hong kong

what is best way to travel round trip from Shantou to Hong Kong. Is train or bus advisable? Will be in Shantou for 2-3 weeks in May and wanted to break up stay with side trip to Hong Kong or elsewhere.

Shanghai, China

If you're staying in Shantou for most of the time, you'll need a multi-entry China visa if you intend to visit Hong Kong a few times within your stay.

There're no direct trains for Shantou -- Hong Kong. You might want to consider going to Shenzhen (by bus) and then cros the border to Hong Kong from there.

I don't think there're ferries for this route, but I'm not sure.
