To other cities in Guangdong
The best option for intercity travel in Guangdong is bus. Buses leave at regular intervals for all major cities and towns in the province from Shenzhen’s larger bus stations (see above). Most of the buses are very comfortable and even play movies for passengers and given the standard of the movies they play, the lack of English subtitles is no impediment to understanding the plot.
