“Early bird catches the worm,” – before the sun could rise – we started the day off at 5.30 AM, to take the bus from Hong Kong to Zhuhai for the buying office visit. Took a walk from the hotel through the wet markets. The stalls were buzzing with life as respective store owners were making early preparations for the incoming morning crowd.
While walking through the alleys of the fish market, locals were transporting styrofoam boxes of the fresh haul that was brought in from the fishing port.
Butchers chopping meat in the early morning to prepare for the morning bustle.
Delivery of newspapers to various stores around the city.
As the bus system was newly implemented for the Hong Kong Bridge and Fast Train, signs were temporarily placed. There are many routes available – Direct (Available in the Daytime & Latenight) and Interchange Routes (Only in Daytime) – that will take you from the respective Urban areas in Hong Kong → Terminal 1 → Terminal 2 → Port → Airport (GTC) Bus Terminus.
Moreover, there is a new express bus available from Admiralty (W) to HSR West Kowloon Station. Scan the quick response (QR) codes to learn more about it!
Boarded the bus E11 at 5.50AM along the bus stop stand (Hennessy Rd, Wan Chai, Hong Kong street) to take the shuttle bus across the bridge to Zhuhai.
Have reached the port for the shuttle bus to Zhuhai: this is Drop off point for buses.

The morning crowd making their way to purchase bus tickets to Zhuhai!
People can view the prices stated on the display stand. Prices are split into daytime and nighttime – cheaper for children, elderly and people with disabilities.
The queue is starting soon with the help of staff members to guide people on the use of self-help kiosk to purchase their bus tickets.
Bus tickets secured – time for the bus ride down to Zhuhai!
Here’s a view of the entrance to the bus station.
There were not many passengers which made the buying office visit trip in the bus peaceful and spacious. There was also plenty of leg rest space available with seats that are ergonomically designed for long comfortable rides.
There is also a TV set available for entertainment purpose as there is no wifi service.
The route was approximately 40-50km long. The shuttle bus service has been opened for one week and yet there is no heavy traffic disrupting the flow. Below is a GIF of the scenery during the bus trip to Zhuhai:
After about 3 hours, we have reached Zhuhai. Cleared the customs and made our way down to the taxi stand.

What Promotional Products Could Work With The Bus?
- Branded Charging Stations beside every seat can help to increase brand exposure as it is a practical idea – like what Manulife did with their custom charging station.
- Backseat Organizer Pockets are useful items that can help ensure you would not misplace your items! the many compartments will bring convenience as you can put it in the organizer instead of reaching out for your bag every now and then. This marketing gift for cars can surely be used on buses as well.
- Promotional Headrest Covers/Cushions – Interactive and colorful designed headrest covers can pique riders interest during the long rides. Moreover, branded cushions can bring comfort yet promote any brand’s ongoing promotional campaign. Take a look at how Comfort and CityCab in Singapore does it!
