    Catch the New World First Ferry from Kowloon to Macau for HKD 172. The trip takes roughly an hour and ferries are leaving from China Ferry Terminal on Canton Road.

    There are also Ferries from Victoria Harbour to Macao with Turbo Jet.

  • Taxi from Macao-HK Ferry to Causeway Bay

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After getting off the ferry in HK and going through passport control, follow the exit signs to the bottom floor to get a taxi into the city.

    The total for our trip to Paterson St on Causeway Bay was just about 50HKD.

    The taxi driver spoke some English, but if you can, try to get the name (or map) of the place you are staying in Cantonese.

    To Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Terminal- Macao

    by yuet29 Written Dec 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most people travel to Macao from ferry terminal in the central but since we stayed in Mongkok, we took the First Ferry that depart from Tsin Sha Tsui terminal.

    Take a bus ride (3C/ 10) from Nathan Road. The last stop of the bus will be at the terminal. Take note that there are other bus 3C and 10 running around Agryl steet, that one to the terminal only pass through Nathan Road. Wait at the exit side of MTR.

    Ferry to Macau

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Nov 13, 2006

    A trip to Macau offers a nice break from the constant crowds and traffic of Hong Kong. There are several ferry options to get you there. I took the ferry from Kowloon Ferry Terminal. The cost for economy class is HK$141 and the ride takes about an hour. There are several different companies offering ferry rides to Macau, but the only major difference is their departure schedule. Between the companies, ferries depart about every 30 minutes from 0700 to 2200.

    The Kowloon Ferry Terminal is located at 33 Canton Rd on the western side of Kowloon, near Kowloon Park.

    Ferries from Hong Kong to Macau

    Kowloon (HK) to Macau: ferry ticket

    A popular daytrip from Hong Kong is to the former Portuguese colony of Macau. While Macau enjoys a similar status to Hong Kong as a Special Administrative Region of China, you still need your passport to travel between the two.

    I undertook such a daytrip in January 2006.

    I arrived in Macau on a fast ferry from Hong Kong which was operated by New World First Ferry Company.

    The journey between Hong Kong and Macau takes just 1 hour and ferries leave from both Central and Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon) in Hong Kong.. I caught a ferry from the China Ferry Terminal in Kowloon, the entrance of which is located on Canton Road. The ferries from Central depart from the Shun Tak Centre, which lies a little way beyond the ferry piers for the Outlying Islands.

    Ferries operate from early in the morning to late at night with departures approximately every 30 minutes. On weekends and public holidays, ferries run throughout the night, with hourly crossings. The cost is approximately 140 HKD each way - with night time crossings a little more expensive than day time crossings.

    Gates close 15 minutes before departure and any oversized baggage can be checked in.

    Staff hand out immigration cards on board. These must be filled out and handed to immigration officials when you arrive in Macau / Hong Kong. Remember your passport when travelling between Hong Kong and Macau.

    The ferries have comfortable seats and on board catering facilities - you can buy hot and cold drinks and various snacks from a catering outlet inside the ferry.

    Another company that operates ferries between Hong Kong and Macau is Turbo Jet. Their services seemed to be slightly more frequent than NWFF and marginally faster.

    Prices correct at January 2006: (1 GBP = 13.7 HKD = 14 MOP$)

    I took the TurboJet from Hong Kong's Shun Tak Centre [Metro station: Sheung Wan]. The journey takes 1h and costs from 138 to 172 HK$ [one way ticket - economy class]. I advise you to book in advance.
    The boat arrives in Macau at Porto Exterior.

    First Ferry to/from Macau

    On board the First Ferry

    Going to Macau? The most common way is to catch the First Ferry there.

    Tickets can be bought at the China Ferry Terminal at Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. The journey takes 1 hour, and there is a ferry leaving every half an hour starting at 7am until 9pm. Services extend to midnight on weekends and public holidays.

    Tickets cost HK$140 (including tax) per seat on weekdays. The seats will be allocated at the boarding gate. The ticket will cost more on weekends.

    Food and drinks are sold on board.

    On-board toilet facilities are very clean.

    Going to Macau

    by kevarms Written Jan 9, 2005

    If you are planning on spending a day or two in Macau it's a good idea to book your accomodation at the Shun Tak Centre in Hong Kong.
    I got a great price for the Hotel Lisboa. You can book your ferry ticket at the same time.

    Turbo Cat

    We took the Turbo Jet catamaran to and from Macau one day. It was a great trip and took about an hour. It was very cheap (about HK$130 at the time) and comfortable.

    We were allowed to take a hand luggage up to 10 kgs each, although we only took one small backpack for our day trip.
