Hello Wanderlust, One thing I love about HK is its proximity to Macau & Shenzhen and it’s also a great link to other parts of Mainland China as well. For this blog entry I’m hoping I can walk you through on how to travel to Macau and vice versa on premiere jetfoil. My husband and I done this last 2009 as we visited Macau for a day and went back to HK the same day but for this trip, we’re going to stay in Macau for 3 days and 2 Nights. And of course since its tried and tested we will go through the same route.

From The Cityview Hotel we hired taxis (because we have heavy luggage, if you don’t have, you can take MTR to Sheung Wan) that will take us to Shun Tak Centre where the Hongkong-Macau Ferry Terminal is located. If you’re in Kowloon you can also check out the China Ferry Terminal located in TST. Since we didn’t book ahead of time, we just purchased one-way ticket on the spot at the ticketing counters located at the 3rd floor of the same building.

Before you board, you have to fill up the embarkation card since you’re leaving HK and entering Macau.  Make sure to declare if there’s anything to declare and prepare your passport for stamps. Aside from that airport check-in counters and luggage services are also available in most port.  Be sure to check-in your luggage 45 to 20 minutes prior your departure for additional fee. Carry on baggage are allowed provided that you meet their specifications. As for us, We pay additional 35 HKD for 20 KG and above per suitcase. Total travel time : 55 minutes so you can take a nap or enjoy the scenery if you’re near the window. For people with vertigo problems, make sure to drink your anti-vertigo pills before you travel. 🙂
