Train station location for trains arriving from Guangzhou

We will be arriving in Hong Kong next month on a train from Guangzhou - T809 from Guangzhou East to Hong Kong (Kowloon) - and would like to know the location of the Hong Kong station and if there is an option to get off in Kowloon and, if so, where is that station located. Many thanks for your help!

The train station that you will arrive at is at Hung Hum and there is connecting MTR station there allowing you quick access to the rest of Hong Kong.

Hung Hom is in Kowloon. There is no option to get off at any other station. You must alight at Hung Hom because there is immigration/custom check involved. And it is only done at Hung Hom Station. You go through Immigration/Custom first, then you are free to go anywhere else in Hong Kong via MTR, bus, taxi, walk, etc..

Immigration is indeed split, you also have immigration to clear in Guangzou. So make sure you to arrive at Guangzhou East station at least some 20 mins before the train leaves.

Have a nice trip!
