3/4 day trip from HKK to Macau - advice needed

Hi guys, need your advice here. We are planning a last minute trip to detour from HKK to Macau. We have shortlisted a few places in Macau to visit: Macau historic centre (Senado Square and maybe add one more nearby place), then to Taipa Village for lunch and then to see the Dreamworks parade at Cotai Strip Resorts. We will have dinner at Macau if time permits, and return to HKK the same night.

Can you advice which ferry should we take? How long is the ferry journey? where do we buy ticket? and whether this plan can work out (is it too packed?)?

Any good place for nice food at these areas we plan to go?

Thank you in advance.

Read some of the top questions on the right side of this page. Which ferry terminal depends on where in HK you'll be. There is a ferry terminal on HK Island and one in Kowloon.

Why is this "3/4" day and not a full day? Where did that one quarter go? :)

Really, by any measure this seems a full day trip from Hong Kong.

The ferry service to Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon) runs at about 30 minute each until about 11pm. The ferry service to Sheung Wan (Hong Kong Island) is 24x7, at 15 minute interval most of the day. If you leave Macau late at night to head back to Hong Kong, usually no problem without prebooking. Ferry ride takes about 1 hour, but you have immigration at both ends, and the end connections... typically a 2 to 2.5 hour from end to end, Macau to Hong Kong hotel.

Check FAQ "Dining in Macau" for ideas.

Macau Tourism produces a nice little booklet called "Historical Walks" (or similar). You can pick it up at the Ferry Terminal. The historical centre can take anything from 1 hour to all day depending on how many photos you take & which buildings you enter. I would advise going to the Macau Fort above the museum for great views, and crossing San Ma Lo to go inside the Senate Building. The Portugese blue tiles are beautiful.

Here is a link with pictures of the recently renovated Macau Government Tourist Office at the main ferry terminal (see link).

This is where you can pick up the Historical Walks brochures and many more, including the 'Whats On Macau' newsletter with all events taking place in the city.
