My friend and I will be in Hong Kong in February and want to go to Macau for the day. As we are Australian it seems we do not need visas -just rock up with our passports .Is that correct? The last time I visited Macau the French still had control. Is it best to do an organised city tour or can we do it on our own. My friend is not big on too much walking. Also we have been told it is possible to hire a taxi to take you round for a few hours. Does anyone know how much it costs? I don't want to get ripped off. Do we need local currency or do the accept Hong Kong dollars? My friend also wishes to visit the Venetian Casino?How is the best way to get there and back to the ferry? After investigating all this would it just be easier and not much more expensive to do a day tour ex Hong Kong. Any advice would be appreciated.
