  1. yes, arriving at shzhenen would be a better option.from the shzhenen airport, there are direct shuttle buses or limo services that take you cross border to Hong Kong.for the limo services, you do not even have to get out of the car to pass customs and immigration, you can show your documents directly to the official at the order in a booth.the cost to go to hk airport from sz airport would only be $20 $50 USD depeding on bus or limo.a flight from shanghai to shzhenen would be approx. $125 USD $150 cheaper than a flight from shanghai to Hong Kong.i think just the hk airport tax is as much as that. chinese airport is cheaper
