It’s possible to visit Hong Kong from cities in Mainland China by both high speed trains and regular intercity train services.
High Speed Rail
Visitors can take a high speed train to Hong Kong from numerous cities in Mainland China. The 26 km “Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong” High Speed Rail (Hong Kong Section) runs from West Kowloon and connects passengers to the national high speed rail network, which is over 25,000 km long. Visitors can travel directly between Hong Kong and 44 destinations in Mainland China, including Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Xiamen and Kunming.
The MTR runs regular through-train intercity services between Hong Kong and Guangdong province, Beijing and Shanghai. The through-train terminus is MTR Hung Hom Station located on the Kowloon harbour-front, where travellers need to pass through Hong Kong Immigration before boarding the train.
