Due to its proximity to Hong Kong, Shenzhen possesses one of the most developed transportation systems in China, with quick routes via ferry, bus, and rail available to many of the neighboring cities.
Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport is the fourth largest airport in China. The airport is approximately 32 km from the city center and is readily accessible by taxi and shuttle bus. Shenzhen provides over 80 domestic routes, including to Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an, and many other destinations throughout China, as well as 30 international routes. Because it is considerably less expensive, many people traveling domestically to Hong Kong opt to fly into Shenzhen and then continue to Hong Kong via shuttle or ferryboat.
Shenzhen’s extensive railway system is considered one of the best in China. In early 2007, the city began operating a high-speed train that travels to and from Guangzhou in record time. Shenzhen also has daily trains to Beijing, Shanghai, Zhengzhou, Hefei, Jiujiang and many other Chinese cities.
Shenzhen's highway system is comprised of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway (connecting Guangzhou to Dongwan), the Shenzhen-Shantou Expressway and the Meiguang Expressway (connecting Shenzhen to Hong Kong). National Highway 107 connects Shenzhen to the Pearl River Delta area, while National Highway 205 connects Shenzhen to the eastern region of Guangdong province. Short and long distance buses service these highways from three main stations and more than 30 long distance bus stations in Shenzhen.
Shenzhen has numerous ports providing transport for both passengers and freight. The city is one of China's largest cargo and passenger port. Shenzhen Shekou Port provides regularly scheduled boats to Hong Kong, Macau, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, and Kowloon.
