Re: Hong Kong to Guangzhou
There is a high speed train running from Shenzhen to Guangzhou now. But be careful to take note of the station, as there are many train stations in both cities. It takes only 35 min. Hong Kong isn't connected yet to the high speed railway. So you'll have to take a regular train or bus from Shenzhen.
Guangzhou is definitely a better city to visit than Shenzhen. Shenzhen was developed only in the late 70s/early 80s because of its proximity to Hong Kong. Guangzhou has a rich history. It was opened up to European traders hundreds of years ago, and it was where the opium wars took place.
