Depends on what you mean by "best". There are lots of ways to do it - for example, most expensive and comfortable is to have a car door-to-door, without even having to leave vehicle at border.

And cheapest will be by one of the "direct" buses from various points in HK to central Guangzhou (from about HK$90), and then switch to the subway.

A better compromise is one of the Intercity trains direct from Hung Hom in HK to Guangzhou East (12 trains a day, takes about 111 minutes). Or take HK's East Rail to Lowu, cross the border, then, one of the very frequent "D" trains from Shenzhen to Guangzhou East (every few minutes, takes 66 minutes from SZ) and then subway.

If you go by rail and switch to the airport bus, you should be able to get to CAN in under 4 hours, unless the lines are super long at the border, and not an issue if you take the Intercity train. If you go by car, should be faster, but the traffic can really come to a crawl on the main Guangzhou-Shenzhen highway. Bus would take even longer, of course.

Edit: Oh, yeah, KA flies HKG-CAN twice a day, and CZ once.

Edit 2: Deleted info about CAN's Airport Express bus. With the subway going to the airport, no reason to ride it...
