    instead by ferry, can go macau by train?

    • Zhiqiang & Tingyi Reply

      it will take you days to get to macau from hong kong by train – you will have to loop around Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai and then down to Macau!

      Ferry is the most direct route.

      About 2 hour ride. Get there as early as possible because passport control might take a long time

      Hi Ashley

      Sorry for the late reply – missed this comment; I wouldnt recommend the hotel we stayed in Shenzhen – for Hong Kong, you can consider Stanford Hotel which I had reviewed.

    Hi, came across your website a few years back.
    Was just wondering if you have the excel file for your itinerary for HK and Macau? I can’t seem to find anywhere in the links.
    By the way, some of the HK posts aren’t accessible. Is there any way you could update them?
    Kindly advise.
    Thanks :)

    Macau Tower, with the height at 338 meters from ground level
    to the highest point, is famous for the tenth tallest sightseeing
    tower in the world, also one of the members of the World Federaion of Great Tower, and
    the 14th highest- standing telecommunication tower in the world.
    It is situated in the Special Administrative Region of The People’s Republic of China.
    The tower was designed by New Zealand engineering firm Beca group led by the
    impression of a Hong Kong casino billionaire Ho Hung Sun of
    the Sky Tower in Auckland, which he later commissioned to be built the similar one in Macau, China.

    It is first opened on December 19, 2001.
