嘿,我得承认,在技术和旅行方面,我不是一个行家。是时间让我慢了下来,我不得不说,我是一个喜欢学习新事物的人。

 

举个例子,坐车去香港 并没有听上去那么简单。

 

我已经多次离开香港在福田(落马洲)出口,顺便说一下,那是我最喜欢的出口!但当谈到罗湖时,我必须说我有一些保留意见,那里比较杂乱,不合我的感觉…它坐落于商业区,以及所有的东西,出口都是在一个不够洁净的商店和公共汽车站的商场内。

 

但是我欣然试图去适应周边的环境。作为一个旅行者,你需要有常识,这个道理你迟早会明白的。

以下就是你要到达那里的关键。

方向:

 

1)你在银滩学校,对吧?你可以乘坐一辆Y1开头的楼巴。一般情况下每10分钟一班(如果你幸运的话),有时在周末,公共汽车要花20分钟才能离开。所以给自己足够的时间,耐心微笑  ,不要气馁。

2)一旦坐在了公共汽车上,大约需要25分钟。乘这辆车到最后一站。有一个公交车站,你很快就会认出来了,因为十里银滩有独特的蓝、白、橙色公交车。

3)显然,你下了Y-1巴士!如果你还没有弄清楚这一点,你的问题比我大。

4)如果你会一些基本的汉语,你能说,深圳?如果可以的话,在这买一张40元的车票是一件很容易的事;但是如果你有学校证件和护照,只需要10元。另外,你也可以从这个仓库买到返程票。

5)公共汽车大约每半小时出发一次。运输大约需要75到90分钟才能到达深圳。

6)一旦公共汽车到达城市,你就在第三站下车。公共汽车开了一个环路,停在和平路上!下车后,你向商业中心走去。如果你不确定,就跟着人群走吧!

7)顺便说一下,要知道深圳有很多“黄牛党”。他们都在公共汽车站附近揽客!

8)跟着标志走到边境。一旦进入大楼的商业中心,你就不会出错。

9)如果你从香港回来,就回到原来的车站。沿着那条人行道走,当你在火车站旅馆前面时,小心地穿过街道。公共汽车站在你前面的大楼后面!向左走,然后向右拐,再向右转!你应该能看到蓝色、白色和橙色的公共汽车。向我们的社区请求。如果你不会说中文,那就让人在你离开十里银滩之前把它写在一张纸上。

这是我最好的描述,以帮助您安全/轻松地进出香港

祝你旅途愉快!!!!!

Transportation to Shenzhen made easy

 

By: Daniel Otero

  

Hey, I have to admit, I’m not the ‘brightest light-bulb’ in the room when it comes to technology and travel.  Time has slowed me down on these two and I have to say, I’m a person that still loves to learn something new.

 

Take for example, like going to Hong Kong, easy-peasy, nice and easy, right? Wrong!  You see, I originally had moved to Hui-dong County from Guangzhou.

 

I had exited multiple times through Futian (Shenzhen), which by the way, is my favorite exit!  But when it came to Luo Hu, I disliked intensely going through this border.  I thought of the exit as grungy, old and messy.  Not to my taste… Located in a commercial district, and of all things, the exit is inside a messy mall of stores and bus stations.

 

However, alas, I had moved here and if I wanted to enjoy the pleasures of HK, I had to adapt to my new surroundings.

 

Therefore, if you’re like me; which I hope not and have a little more common sense as a traveller, you’ll be able to figure it out sooner than later.

 

For those who are like me, here’s the break down on how to get there.

Directions:

 

  • You’re in Silver Beach School, right?  You can take one of the blue or white buses. These transports are identified in the front by the Y-1.  A bus will leave every 10 minutes (if you’re lucky), and sometimes on the weekends the bus takes over 20 minutes to depart.  So, give yourself enough time, patience, smile and don’t be discouraged.  You can’t get it wrong once you’re in front of the school.

 

  • Once on the bus, it’ll take approximately 25 minutes.  Take this vehicle to the last stop.  There’s a bus terminal and you’ll soon recognize it because of the distinctive blue, whiteand orange buses which are part of the Country Garden Community.

 

  • Obviously, you get off the Y-1bus, duh!  If you haven’t figured out this one yet, you have a bigger problem than me.

 

  • Even if your Chinese is basic, can you say, Shen-zhen?  If you can, it’s as easy as getting a ticket for 40 RMB; however, if you have your school identification (I.D.) and passport, it’s only 10 RMB.Also, you can buy your return ticket from this depot.

 

  • Buses depart approximately every half-an-hour.  The transport takes around 75 to 90 minutes to reach Shenzhen.

 

  • Once the bus has reached the city, you get off on the third stop.  The bus does a loop and stops on Heping Road!  When you get off, you walk towards the commercial center.  If you’re not sure, just follow the crowds!

 

  • By the way, be aware of the ‘scalpers’.  They’re all over the bus station!

 

  • Follow the signs till you reach the border.  You can’t go wrong once you’re in the building’s commercial center.

 

  • If you’re returning from HK, you walk back to the original stop.  Walk along this sidewalk and when you’re in front of the ‘Railway Station Hotel’, carefully cross the street.  There’s the bus depot, located behind the building in front of you!  Walk towards your left, then inside the building to the right and rapidly, right again!  You ought be able to see the blue, white and orange buses.  Ask for the one to our community.  If you can’t speak Chinese, then have somebody write it down on a piece of paper before you depart Country Garden.

 

This is my best description to help you make it safely/easy in and out of Hong Kong.  Enjoy your trip!
