The Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train

Guangzhou Kowloon Through Train
The Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train (Chinese: 广九直通车 or廣九直通車) is an inter-city railway service between Hong Kong and Guangzhou jointly operated by the MTR Corporation of Hong Kong and the Ministry of Railways of the People’s Republic of China. Services operate along the East Rail Line within Hong Kong territory, crossing the Hong Kong-Chinese border at Lo Wu, and continuing along the Guangshen Railway in Guangdong province.

Twelve trains run in each direction every day, with a journey time of 1 hour 40 minutes. You go through the immigration formality (Hong Kong side and Mainland China side) at once, at where you board the train. So that is pretty convenient.

One way ticket costs about HK$190 for first class, and HK$230 for premium class.

Ticket Fare:
Kowloon ⇔Dongguan: HK$145 (Adult)/HK$73 (Children)
Kowloon ⇔Guangzhou: HK$190(Adult)/HK$95 (Children)
Ticket for childen applies for kids from 5 to 9 (including 9) years old. Children before the age of 5 are free of charge and should buy adult ticket since 10 years old.
