Macau: Side Trip of Hong Kong

When in Hong Kong it is a practical idea to have a side trip in Macau. It is a small country across Hong Kong occupied by Portugal. It is branded as “The Entertainment Country in Asia for Asians” and “Las Vegas of Asia”. Obviously, when u heard of Macau the first thing that comes to your mind are casinos.

Actually it is my friend’s dream to visit Macau, but it is obviously expensive. The hotels cost 100 dollars for a single night stay. So I suggested that we fly to Hong Kong and go to Macau through ferry. It is more practical and cheaper since we can stay in her aunts place for free.

We bought a round trip promo ticket to Taipa Macau at Cotai Water Jet for HKD 300. It may appear in the photo above that the tickets are worth HKD 367 but we had discount from the agent who sold us the tickets.

When we arrived in Taipa ferry station we took the Venetian Hotel Shuttle bus. Taipa is near Venetian about 10-15 minutes.

From Venetian Hotel, we took the free shuttle bus going back to Taipa Station since the line for the shuttle going to Sands Macao Hotel is too long that we can’t stand to wait for it. Going back to Taipa, there is a free shuttle bus going to Sands Hotel we use it because it is just near our next destination, Macau Fisherman’s Wharf.
