I think that is a difficult one because by the time you are through immigration it will be close to midnight. If you google Shenzhen airport they have a section on "access" in English, the time tables for local buses (and to Hong Kong) are in Chinese but you can figure it out. There is a bus going directly to the Kowloon station but it doesn't run that late . Probably best to go to Shenzhen city and from there to HK. Taxis in China are not that expensive but make sure they put the meter on and do take the taxi from the official taxi stand. Reply to this

thanks! i had a friend go through the chinese section of the page today and she said the last one runs just before our plane arrives... cabs are the way to go, you cant beat 8-10rmb to go a few km Reply to this

I would recommend that you stay in Shenzhen at least overnight. Its a great City to explore and also FAR CHEAPER than HongKong.
