Macau to Hong Kong and return


I'll be flying into Macau and wish to travel to Hong Kong immediately for a few days' tour of HK. What is the fastest way to get to HK and back to Macau other than by air? If by ferry, where do I get on and off?

What are the sights in HK besides the theme parks that you can recommend?

Other than helicopter, the fastest and normal way is by ferry.

You have a choice of ferry companies:




Cotaijet sail from Taipa near the airport to HK island.

Turbojet sail from the main ferry terminal in Macau to Hk island.

First ferry sail from the main ferry terminal to Kowloon.

It's cheap and easy to get to the ferry terminals either by taxi or bus.

www.discoverhongkong.com/ has lots of advice about things to do in Hong Kong.

We got the Cotai Jet to HKG - I prebooked our tickets on line. It was really easy.

For the return ferry home, as I didnt know exactly how much time we wanted to spend in HKG that day I just bought tickets at the ferry terminal.

In HKG i would highly recommend to start on HKG Island as that is where the ferries arrive into. We walked around and saw a few temples then went up to Victoria Peak. If it is a really nice day the line up for the tram to the peak can be quite long, so for the extra $ i ended up buying a combo pass which included entry into Madam Tuassads and the tram up to the peak. We got on the next tram instantly.

We had lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp, they have great (and inexpensive food) and a view to die for !!!!!

From there we went and caught the Star Ferry across the harbour to Kowloon and then hit the shops!! You can then catch a ferry from Kowloon side back to Macau.

If your intention is to visit both place, why not consider arriving at macau and departure from HK? air asia rate for oneway in not loaded as others.

In this case you will not need to fo back to macau from your departure.

By the way, if you have sea sickness, please be prepare with necessary medicine.
