The best way to get from Guangzhou to Hong Kong is the two-hour journey on a direct train that leaves every hour from Guangzhou East Railway Station and arrives in Hong Kong, at Hung Hom. There are also a handful of buses that run from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, some direct and some making stops along the way in Dongguan and Shenzhen. While this is a cheaper alternative to the train, bus trips will take at least three hours and often more, so plan accordingly. Regardless of whether you go by train or bus, however, remember to leave time for customs, where you will likely spend at least a half hour waiting to get through.
