Hi, I hope I can get some help on the above as I'm getting more and more confused.
4 of us will be departing for HK on 31st July 2008. 3 of them will be boarding CX to fly to HK whilst I will be on SQ. All flights are departing out of Singapore and all of us are to arrive in HKIA at 12:15pm. Upon arrival, we are to take a ferry to Macau to spend 2 nights before returning to HK for another 3 nights holiday. I know that there's a 2pm ferry sailing from HKIA (Skypier) to Macau.
What I'm very confused is: I've read that we DO NOT pass immigration and head straight to the Skypier to purchase our ferry tickets to Macau and thereafter, we board a bus (?) to the pier to get on board the Ferry. In between this, what happens to our luggages?? If they are going to pick it up and load it onto the Ferry, do we need to inform CX/SQ that we're actually catching a ferry to Macau?
I had this impression that we were to pick up our bags and clear customs and then go out to buy the tickets (because I assumed that the ticket office is OUTSIDE of the arrival hall). If we clear immigration - does that mean we can't go back again to Skypier to buy tickets?
Hope someone can assist me on this. Thanks in advance.
