For a real tour of South China take the Hong Kong to Guilin train and onto Bejing before returing to Hong Kong.
This picture is the Shenzhen to Guilin overnight sleeper train late at night in the restaurant car.
Very easy trip, but pre-book if you want a berth.
Take the Metro out of Hong Kong to Shenzhen and walk across the boarder into mainland China. Get out of Shenzhen fast by catching the overnight train to Guilin. It costs around $80 for a single Soft Sleeper berth.
Spend a couple of days in Guilin before catching a 26 hour sleeper train to Beijing. Spend 3 or 4 days in Beijing before catching a 25 hour sleeper train to complete the circle back to Hong Kong.
Its the best way to see the country and expereince some of China in a brief few days. Well worth doing!
