These posts will contain a mix of photos from both my trips to Hong Kong (first in Dec 2007 and recently in Sep 2009) so don’t be puzzled if I look a bit different.  :-)

becos’ the posts for Hong Kong and Macau are not up yet :-) afraid that Macau links might not be up in time for you since I am going there first week Feb.


7 Low Lay Guat May 4, 2011 at 10:36 pm

instead by ferry, can go macau by train?


8 Zhiqiang & Tingyi May 4, 2011 at 10:42 pm

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.


9 Low Lay Guat May 22, 2011 at 9:05 pm

how long to reach macau by ferry ? what time to go so can make use of 1 day at macau. ? thanks for your reply….


10 Zhiqiang & Tingyi May 23, 2011 at 12:16 am

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 :)
