Hi

YOur Chauzhou trips sounds fantastic. I am thinking of going there, could you go there by train from HK, would you know where I can find out some information about getting a train to Chaozhou from HK?

Hi err Getting There,

I have no idea of any train from HK to Chaozhou. What I know is you can get there from Shenzhen using the expressway. There are flights from HK to Shantou and then a taxi to Chaozhou. Trains, as far as I know, departs from Guangzhou.

Where did you stay in Chaozhou?
Could me recommend me some affordable and decent accomodation?
Did you manage to move around easily?
