Getting around Shantou :
The rickshaws are the best ways to get around short distances. Usually a 10minute ride should not cost more than 5 RMB.
Taxis are smelly, but they are the only way to get to Chenghai and other remote places (In case your factory does not pick you up). You can negotiate a fixed fare instead of using the meter.
Hotels can also arrange for a car and driver to take you around for the day , or per hour.
Getting to other cities.
There are buses which go to Shenzen, Guangzhou at regular intervals (every 30mins). You can usually get information from the major hotels such as the golden gulf hotel business center.
Buses to Hong Kong
There are 3 buses that go to Hong Kong twice a day.
Regency Bus > I think departing daily at 9am and 4pm. Try to get the exit row seat at the back. Regency Hotel.
In Hong Kong it stops at Yau Ma Tei YMCA, and somewhere in Hong Kong side
Golden Gulf > i think departing daily at 8am and 2pm. Golden Gulf Hotel
Stops at Kowloon Tong and Tsim Sha Tsui.
Meritus > The most comfortable bus by far. Has a few stops along the way but the seats are super luxurious.
Stops at Fanling, Sha Tin, and Tsuen Wan.
Usually buses to hong kong will stop half way for a break, and again at the border where you need to take your ALL your bags and pass immigratoin. Then get on the bus again to go to the Hong Kong border where you have to get off again and pass the Hong Kong immigration. It sounds like a tedious process, but its not too bad.
Note: Exit and Entry Forms must be filled both ways.
Flights : You can also arrange flights at the hotel business center. Usually air tickets have fixed prices, and you'll pay a small surcharge using the hotel's business center. In my opinion The golden gulf Hotel has the best business center in town with english speaking staff.
Contact any business center for more information
