Getting around

Bus & tram


Shēnzhèn has an efficient network of buses and minibuses (Y1 to Y3). From the train station, buses 12 and 101 head north and then east, passing Lychee Park. Bus 204 to Shékǒu leaves from a station north of the intersection of Jianshe Lu and Jiabin Lu.

Local transport


Shēnzhèn’s has two metro lines (tickets are between Y2 and Y5). Line 1, most useful for visitors, covers the stretch from the Luóhú border crossing to the Window of the World theme park.


The taxi flagfall is Y12.5 (Y16.10 from 11pm to 6am). It’s then Y0.60 for every additional 250m travelled. Taxi drivers have a poor reputation in Shēnzhèn – make sure they turn on the meter. Women should avoid travelling solo in taxis at night.
