Gongbei Warnings and Dangers

    by vincentf Written Aug 27, 2006

    Watch out for touts offering cheap transport in their minivans. They are often much more expensive than the taxi stand in the underground of Port Plaza (near the Kee Kwan Bus Terminal). Furthermore, they are unlicensed!

    Favorite thing: This is the most popular way of entering Macau from Zhuhai. Thus, throngs of people pass through this border every single day. Vehicles may also cross this border as well, in addition to the Lotus Bridge linking Macau and Hengqin Island (China).

    Fondest memory: This is the main overland route into Macau (Portas Do Cerco). Be reminded that the border hours are from 7:30am to 12:00am midnight.
