Shenzhen check points border

Shenzhen has 10 checkpoints in total, composed of eight land ports and two sea ports. The five most well-known land ports are:

  • Shatoujiao,
  • Luohu (open 06:30 – 00:00) This one is most popular, in Luohu district, so a bit to the east.
  • HuangGang (open 24 hours per day) Often used to travel to HKIA, also quite busy
  • Futian (open 06:30 – 22:30)  Less well known
  • Shenzhen Bay (open 06:30 – 23:30)  New crossing at the end of the long bridge in Shekou, good option instead of the ferry

And the two sea ports:

  • Shekou (see article about Shenzhen Ferry )
  • Fuyong passenger terminals.

If you need to cross the border between Hong Kong and Shenzhen after midnight, you only have one option: the 24-hours border crossing at HuangGang custom.

There’s some confusion about the names HuangGang and the Cantonese name Lok Ma Chau.

  • Lok Ma Chau will usually imply the HuangGang/Lok Ma Chau 24-hours border crossing. But Lok Ma Chau is likewise the title of the MTR railway station at the border crossing with Futian custom!
  • HuangGuang will typically mean the same 24-hours border crossing, but HuangGuang also used to refer to the last station of Shenzhen’s line 2 metro in the Futian border crossing. Note this has been changed into Futian Custom subway stop, so it makes more sense now.
