SHENZHEN/HONG KONG, Feb. 6 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese mainland fully resumed normal travel with the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions (SARs) starting Monday, in what is expected to be a strong boost for the two regions' economic development.
Starting Monday, the Lo Wu Control Point, the Lok Ma Chau/Huanggang Control Point and the Heung Yuen Wai/Liantang Control Point opened up, marking the full resumption of the functioning of all seven boundary control points between Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
Monday's first group of travelers included students, cyclists, and people traveling for business and family reunions.
Group tours between the mainland and the two SARs also resumed on Monday.
