How to get across from Macau to Gongbei
We made our way to Gongbei after we checkin to our hotel as it was a rainy day.
Just take a bus to the barrier gate and when you reach the bus terminus where everybody alight, take the esclator up and follow the crowd.
You will come across a beautiful landscape garden and water fountain. Walk towards the barrier gate and you will see the departure hall on your left.
Take the esclator up and follow the crowd to the immigration counter. Do have your departure card and your passport with you before joining the queue for foreigners (shorter queue).
Your departure card will be collected by the immigration officer on Macau's side. You will be in a no man's land for about 3 mins before you arrive at the China's immigration. You will have to fill up an arrival card and look for the foreigner queue.
After all this hassle, you are in Gongbei. You will see the Port Plaza (underground shopping mall) on your right, take the esclator down and you are in this wonderful shopping land.
Home Sweet Home
Get ready your departure card at the China's immigration. When you cross over to the Macau's Immigration, do fill up the arrival card before you join the queue.
After reaching the barrier gate, walk to the end and you will see a signboard showing directions for free shuttle bus back to your hotel. If your hotel doesnt provide one, hop on to the one that is nearest to your hotel.

I had my nails done at this very crowded shop.
Their service was very fast and efficient.
One gal started to work on my feet while the other gal worked on my hand when she was done with her customer.
