If you mean you want to stay awake all night, then you would be better off visiting one of the Casinos. I have no knowledge of the hours of MFM but it is a very tiny airport, with nothing to do, even if you were allowed to sit there.

Ferries run 24/7 so you could just as easily head for HK when you tire of the casinos (a comfortable sleep for 1 hour on the ferry!!)

Hi,

could try the bus route AP1 last bus from its terminus is at 5mins past midnight, so it could probably reach its stop at the airport around 1220am,then it does a stop at the ferry terminal (Macau Outer Harbout terminal).

Or try a slow walk to Taipa ferry terminal,and there are Cotai Jet departing at 2359,0100,and 0300hrs (last ferry) to HK Macao ferry terminal in Sheung Wan.

Fare for MOP185 for night sailing.

Day sailing only starts at 7am for Cotai Jet,whereby fare is MOP149.

Here is a link with folks sharing their experience sleeping in Macau airport:_

A taxi from airport to Macau outer harbour terminal,with surcharge for luggage in trunk and from airport--probably around MOP60-70.

Thanks a lot for your accurate suggestion. It helps a lot. If I may ask again, this Macau Outer Harbout terminal, is this the terminal wherein i could ride a ferry going to Hong Kong?

I'll be staying in Vila Hou Va Hotel on the 29th of July before I go back to the Philippines on the 30th, my question is, is the St. Paul ruins near to where I'll be staying? or is there any attractions that I could enjoy at night?pls help.thanks

Hi,

yep, Macau Outer Harbour Terminal is the ferry terminal whereby you can take Turbojet(a ferry operator) to HOng Kong,to arrive either at Sheung Wan(HKisland) at HK Macao ferry terminal or at Tsim Sha Tsui(Kowloon) at China Ferry Terminal.

From the area where your hotel is located, a walk of maybe 15-20minutes to St Paul's Ruins.

Hi again,

take the ferry from Macau Outer Harbour terminal in Macau Peninsula to go to KOwloon- CHina Ferry Terminal.

Ferry operator: Turbojet.

However, if you are planning to go to this ferry terminal, on the day of your arrival into Macau, am afraid the last Turbojet ferry to China Ferry Terminal is at 2230hrs(10:30pm)--so is no good.

So,in your context of getting straight into HK on the night you arrive into Macau, it is either from Taipa ferry terminal with Cotai Jet(which is closer to airport) or Macau Outer Harbour ferry terminal with Turbojet-and both sailings to HK Macao ferry terminal in Sheung Wan(HK island),then best to just take a taxi from the cross-harbour taxi rank outside this terminal Shun Tak Centre ).

Taking a taxi from a cross-harbour taxi rank means you don't have to pay the return tunnel charge.

Both Hong Kong and Macau are quite safe. No need to worry even though you are alone.
