Saturday, April 7th, 2012

The new high speed rail service between Wuhan and Shenzhen has commenced, with the entire trip taking only 4 hours and 13 minutes. The new line connects Wuhan to Guangzhou and Guangzhou to Shenzhen, and departs from the Shenzhen North Railway Station where there is a direct connection with the Shenzhen Metro. It makes it easy to visit Wuhan from Shenzhen, as well as other major places of interest such as Changsha.

Looking forward to another Shenzhen trip

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

In August I will return for another trip to Shenzhen – it will be great to be back! This time I will fly direct to Shenzhen Airport on one of Hainan Airlines new international flights to Shenzhen. As well as enjoying the hospitality of the five-star Hainan Airlines, traveling directly to Shenzhen saves time over my previous visits where I have had to fly to Hong Kong airport and then travel across the Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region) boundary to Shenzhen. From Shenzhen Airport there is then easy access to locations across Shenzhen following the opening of the extension of Metro Line 1 to Shenzhen Airport and other new lines and line extensions.
