Possibly our easiest journey to date, crossing the border from China into the “Special Administrative Region” of Hong Kong.
We leave our Chinese hostel by underground metro to Guangzhou East train station, board a train with seats(!) and walk across the border at Shenzhen into Hong Kong. We go for one stop on the metro in Hong Kong, jump off and find a bus to Yuen Long, New Territories, Hong Kong, where we meet Stephen’s Aunt.

The suprisingly comfortable train into Hong Kong - no-one is spitting at all
Hopefully the last time for carrying our big bags, as we can leave some heavier clothes behind!
We arrive at Choi Village!
What Stephen's Aunt thinks of us travelling by train to get to Hong Kong
We are well over the halfway mark in terms of distance "as the crow flies"
and now that little bit closer to Sydney...
