This was during my first out of the country trip. Clueless as we were, my friends and I book our trip through a travel agency. Not only was it cheap but also convenient. We need not to worry about our accommodation, transportation and the tour itself. The downside is, were like school kids on a field trip. Lol. So after our Hongkong Disneyland trip, we leave for Shenzhen, China.


Our tour guide in Hongkong take us to the East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station on the Kowloon side where we take the East Rail Line to Lo Wu, which is the Hongkong – China Border. The train ride to Lo Wu only takes us less than an hour.


At Shenzhen Immigration, we were met by our new tour guide who arranges our Shenzhen China Group Visa. The visa (Group Visa) is a piece of paper where the names of the group travelling is listed, that would mean we have to enter and exit the immigration together – we even have to fall in line according to the list in our group visa. 


We only had less than a day to tour Shenzhen and this includes visiting Jade Factory, Silk and Pearl Factory and picture taking outside windows of the world. We were like elementary kids on  Educational Tour…hahaha… but it was fun and the price there is really cheap. The tour would have been better I guess, if we get inside windows of the world but we are afraid we might get late for our flight to back to Manila.
