Luohu Land Port and Train Station

The border crossing at Luohu, connecting Shenzhen on the mainland with Hong Kong, is China’s busiest, with 400,000 people passing through each day (and as many as 600,000 on holidays). Because travelers between the mainland and Hong Kong must pass through customs, the checkpoint—where mainland rail, subway, and bus lines converge—has always been a bottleneck for both pedestrians and multimodal traffic. Now, with the completion of the Luohu Land Port and Train Station, the three-city-block area is a ceremonial gateway to China and a public amenity for the citizens of Shenzhen and its many visitors.
