    Commute from Hong Lok Yuen to shenzhen

    Hello
    We are trying to decide whether to live in HK or Shekou. i have identified Hong lok Yuen as the nearest expat community with schools in HK. How long would it take to drive (with a driver)from there to Bantian /northeast Shenzhen)? How long would you need to allow to cross the border? If you have the right paperwork is it very straightforward?

    If anyone knows of a better place in HK with good expat community and schools with easy commute of about an hour to Bantian I would welcome your input.

    Many thanks

    I don't think you have a choice. What rights to you have to live in hong kong?

    Even in Shekou the commute can be way over an hour to Bantian, traffic can be awful both ends.

    Forget HK, a driver will cost a fortune and the commute could be double that depending on border traffic, etc.
