comment How to reach the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region with maximum hitchhiking and minimum expenditure from Guangzhou?
@Him: When you say you can't cross the "boundary" on foot do you mean that at each and every one of the (is it four?) official border crossing points that crossing on foot is not permitted? Or did you mean that crossing at random places along the border is not permitted?

@Him: I tried to make it clear that I wanted to go anywhere in HK. Whatever destination is cheapest. I know hot to go from Guangzhou to Shenzhen with minimum cost - hitchhiking. Which is partly on foot and partly with friendly strangers in cars and trucks.

I've been hitchhiking in Guangdong with no problems at all. Some ignore, some give you a ride for hundreds of kilometres. The fist rule of hitchhiking is don't take hitchhiking advice from non-hitchhikers (-; (But I've heard that hitching really doesn't work in Hong Kong.)

Yep my visa is sorted. I probably can't afford HK for more than a few days anyway so it will be basically a visa run unless I can find some rain-free or undercover camping.

Cool. I was slowly piecing some of this together but with the VPN getting cut off again and again trying to Google from zero knowledge was surprisingly tricky. But it looks like I can easily hitchhike from here to the border, walk across the border, and within HK hitchhiking is both not legal and not gonna work. Thanks for confirming some of the key steps!

@AdrienBe: Travelling to the countries isn't necessary either. Necessity isn't the only reason people want to do things.
