by Nina
(Philippines)

It is my first time in Hongkong and Macau and I'd like to make the most out of my trip. I would like to go in most tourist spots but I don't want to waste so much time getting lost so I've been planning this trip since Feb and so far this is what I've got.

Q: how will I get from ocean park to TST promenade for the symphony of lights? what MTR station and what exit? travel time?

8pm Symphony of Lights, Avenue of Stars
*TST Waterfront

If not how will I get there?

Q: I read from other blogs that it is wise to make use of the free shuttle buses in Macau. Does anyone have an idea how can I make use of it with my itinerary? I heard Macau is a small place, but still, I believe I can save so much time if I already have an idea where to ride beforehand.

Suggestions? Comments? I hope someone can help me with this! thanks so much!

re: suggestion in your 12 days tour to HK, Macau, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou.
by: HKinsider Don

Hi cute,

Here's my suggestion in your 12 days tour to HK, Macau, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou.

Spare 1 whole day each for Macau, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou then the rest to HK.

Basically you'll have 9 days enough to cover most of the Hong Kong attractions that the city has to offer (pls refer to the links below on this page).

For new year's eve in HK, do not miss the opportunity to watch live the very popular new years eve spectacular fireworks show at the Victoria Harbor. Vantage point will be TST promenade.

Here's a video for 2012 fireworks show @ Hong Kong Victoria Harbour...

re: itinerary advice
by: HKinsider Don

Hi Sarah,

Here's my personal itinerary suggestion based on the places you've mentioned to maximized your trip.

Day 1: Arrival at HK airport --> Ferry transit to Zhuhai (you need a China Visa upon arrival at Zhuhai). Explore Zhuhai and get a hotel at Gongbie area (close to the Macau border.

For more info, please read this topic discussion about getting to Zhuhai.

Day 2: Zhuhai --> Macau. Explore the whole day in Macau and perhaps a finale at one of the popular casinos over there before heading to HK by Ferry at night.

Day 3 (at HK): Disneyland --> street market shopping

Day 4: Ocean Park --> The Peak --> Symphony of Lights

Day 5: Maybe 1 or 2 popular HK Museums --> final shopping --> departure.

Hope that will give you some help for planning your itinerary.

Need your advice
by: Sarah

Hi, I need your advice as I plan to bring my children for their first trip in November. However I am working on a budget so I hope you can plan a 5 days itinerary for Hong Kong/Macau/Zhu Hai.

The air ticket is cheapest from here to Hong Kong, and Hotel stay is cheapest at Zhu Hai. Is it advisable to fly to Hong Kong then travel to Zhu Hai. Will stay Zhu Hai's hotel first 3 days to tour round Macau and Zhu Hai, then back to Hong Kong for 2 days so I won't be late for my flight back home?

Thank you!

SCROLL UP FOR ITENARIES
by: Roland

Hello all, I am a fellow 1st time tourist to Hong Kong/Macau and have been doing my research. I noticed that many of you ask questions that have been answered repeatedly in this comment thread, I strongly suggest scrolling through this entire page, and I am quite sure your questions will be answered.

Also, to get a good overview of where everything is, you can always type the names of the places on maps.google.com. Everything is shown in detail, including the MTR lines.

Just my 2 cents worth, pity the super helpful person who has been writing the same things over and over again.

Thanks, and I hope you all have an amazing time in Hong Kong/Macau/Shen Zhen.

Help needed for 7 Day Hong Kong/Macau Shenzhen and Zhuhai
by: Kris

Hi would appreciate your assistance if u can suggest an itinery for 4(basically travelling with parents) from 3 Aug to 9 Aug?

We will be flying to Hong Kong and plans to stay at Mirador Mansion but still cant decide which hostel (any suggestions as well?). For HK i guess we'll skip the Theme parks since my parents not keen on the rides etc but prefer more sightseeing. Then we plan to spend a day each at Macau, Shenzhen and maybe Zhuhai/Guangzhou while still staying in the HK hostel.

I'm more confused with the planning of transportation available to the attractions in Macau, Shenzhen and Zhuhai/Guangzhou. Need your assistance! Thanks alot!!!

GOING BACK TO KIMBERLY HOTEL FROM DISNEYLAND
by: Anonymous

Hi! Pls. instruct me how to go back to kimberly hotel from HK Disneyland, ty!

re: 3days HK and 1 day Macau
by: hkinsider Don

Hi Tet,

I think the best itinerary would be...
Peak in the morning til noon --> back to the hotel and check-out --> proceed to Tung Chung and stow your luggage at Citygate Outlets --> Ngong Ping 360 --> back to Tung Chung --> dining and final shopping at Citygate --> 10 mins @ HK$45 taxi from Tung Chung to HK airport.

Above route would save you lot of time and also, most of the hotels check-out time is before 2:00pm.

Getting to the Peak from Butterfly On Prat Hotel Hong Kong: This route would be the cheapest, efficient, and most scenic.
Walk 10 minutes to the TST promenade, this will give you a change to see the Victoria harbour beautiful day-view --> stroll along the TST waterfront until you reach the Star Ferry Pier --> take the Star Ferry to Central (9 mins @ HK$2.5) --> walk to the nearby Central Pier bus terminus --> take the bus 15C (bus service starts @ 10:00am) to the Peak Tram lower terminal at Garden rd, Central for 10 mins ride @ HK$4.2 --> Peak Tram to the Peak.

Pls follow same travel route in getting back to the hotel in reverse order.

3days HK and 1 day Macau
by: Tet

Thanks again Don. :)

We have arranged a luggage deposit in our hotel so we planned to pick them up again at night.

at the last day, what do you suggest, the peak then ngong ping 360? or Ngong ping then the peak? then, last minute shopping, back to the hotel then airport. is this ok?

If its better to go to the Peak first, can you please give the direction on how to get there from the hotel?

Thank you very much. :)



re: 3 days Hk 1 day Macau
by: hkinsider Don

@ Tet,

Victoria Peak and Ngong Ping in your last day is also a good itinerary. In that case, you can carry your luggage to Tung Chung and use the luggage lockers for rent available at Citygate Outlets and then pick it up later after coming back from NP and before heading to the airport, of course after a final shopping at the Outlet mall.

You should be at Ocean Park before 12:00 noon and head directly to the Headland by cable car as most of the fun and rides are located in there also, do not miss to see the fantastic dolphin show at 1:00pm. Later, get back to Lowland for a glance at the Panda before finding your way to exit the park.

Here's how to get to Disneyland from Butterfly on Prat.
MTR train Tsuen Wan Line from TST to Lai King station --> change to Tung Chung Line to Sunny Bay station --> change to Disneyland Resort Line to Disneyland (38 mins @ HK$17) then Exit A --> walk 4 mins to the park main entrance.

Here's how to get to Ngong Ping from Butterfly on Prat.
MTR train Tsuen Wan Line from TST to Lai King station --> change to Tung Chung Line all the way to Tung Chung station (38 mins @ HK$14.1) and then take Exit B --> walk 4 mins to the NP 360 cable car terminal --> cable car ride to Ngong Ping (25 mins @ HK$125 - round trip ticket, recommended).

3 days Hk 1 day Macau
by: Tet

Thank you very much Don:)

We have changed our flight on the 4th day at 10pm. On the last day, we plan to go to Ngong Ping 360 and Victoria peak and some last minute shopping, is it possible? Or is it ok to go to Ngong ping on the 3rd day in the morning and ocean park in the afternoon around 2pm? Will we miss some good shows in Ocean park if we come at this hour?

Could you also tell me the direction going to Disneyland and Ngong Ping from Butterfly on Prat?

Thank you:)

re: 3 days HK 1 day Macau
by: hkinsider Don

@ Tet,

Butterfly On Prat Hotel Hong Kong - is a 4-star hotel located at 21 Prat Avenue Tsim Sha Tsui Kowloon Hong Kong. It is about 5-min walk from MTR Tsim Sha Tsui Station. Use Exit A2, walk along Humphrey’s Avenue, cross the Carnarvon Road to reach Prat Avenue. Also, the hotel is about 12 mins walk to the TST waterfront to visit Avenue of Stars or watch the Symphony of Lights show.

The hotel location is generally good.

After Disneyland, you can still do shopping until 10:00pm and the suggested place is somewhere in Causeway Bay. Take the MTR Causeway Bay from Disneyland (41 mins @ HK$21.7) then take Exit D1 and walk 3 mins to the wtc more a trend-setting mall with international brands as well as Michelin recommended and sea view restaurants. Here are more well-known shopping mall at Causeway Bay.

Going to Macau, there's NO need to buy tickets in advance as you can easily get it when the time you arrive at the ferry terminal. The street markets are still open until 11:30pm.

Getting to Ocean Park from Butterfly On Prat Hotel Hong Kong is easy. Get into the TST MTR station --> take the Tsuen Wan Line to the next station - Admiralty station (5 mins @ HK$8.1) and then take Exit B --> take bus 629 that will bring you straight to Ocean Park entrance (25 mins @ HK$10.6).

From Ocean Park, the best place to go is the TST waterfront for Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights show @ 8:00pm and then a finale of street market shopping.

Departure day - I afraid you don't have enough time to do shopping at the city as most of the shopping malls will open at 10:00am considering you need to be at the airport 2 hours before your flight. I would suggest you just go to directly to the airport in the morning and do shopping at the well-known Airport shopping malls.

re: going to macau from kimberly hotel
by: hkinsider Don

The Kimberley Hotel Hong Kong is located at 28 Kimberley Road, Tsimshatsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

To have more efficient ferry to Macau, I would suggest you get into the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal at Sheung Wan.

Here's how to get there from Kimberley hotel.
Take a 12 mins walk or a short taxi drive (@ HK$20) to the TST Ferry Pier --> take the Star Ferry to Central (9 mins @ HK$2.5) --> walk 5 mins to the ferry terminal --> take either turbojet or cotaijet to Macau (about 60 mins journey @ HK$151). Ferry service is 24 hrs.

Upon exit at immigration in Macau, there are free shuttle bus provided by most of the hotels if you're going to stay there or you want a visit to their casinos.

Otherwise, if you only wanted to see the Macau attractions (pls follow link to see attractions location map), I suggest just take a taxi straight to the Senado Square (the main plaza) as most of other attraction are walking distance from that point. Don't worry Macau is just a very small place.

Just take a taxi in your to get back to the MAcau Ferry Terminal. Bus is not recommended, too slow and will kill your time.

A Taxi from Macau proper (like at Senado Square) to the Macau Ferry terminal is only about 10 mins drive @ MOP40 or HK$40.

HK - Macau currency conversion: 1 Hong Kong Dollar (HK$) = 1.0245 Macau Patacas (MOP) so almost 1:1 and don't worry HK$ is widely accepted in Macau.

Re: where to buy tickets for peak tram and madamr tussauds
by: HKinsider Don

You can easily buy The Peak tickets at the Peak Tram Lower terminal at Garden Rd, Central. And yes, there are also combo tickets available where you can get some discounts.

Like for example, the Peak Tram ticket will cost HK$40 (round trip) and the Madame Tussauds ticket price is HK$160 but you can buy a combo ticket package for Peak Tram round trip ticket + Madame Tussauds ticket at HK$185 so that you'll save HK$15.

Do u have any suggestion of travel itinerary for 6 days (5 days HK and 1 day macau)in Hong Kong? We are staying in Mong kok. Thank you!

Re: 4D/3D HK/MACAU ITINERARY
by: HKinsider Don

I think the best day that you can visit Ocean Park is in your Day 4.

You can check out from the hotel early and go straight to Ocean Park (opens at 10:00am) --> leave your luggage in Ocean Park (there are luggage lockers available for rent) while you explore the whole park --> go straight to HK airport by taxi at around 2:00 or 2:30pm (about 50 mins drive @ HK$350).

You can buy Ocean Park tickets at Admiralty before taking the bus 629 or at the park main entrance @ HK$280 one day adult and HK$140 for children 3-11 years old.

Here's how to get to Ocean Park from TST.

Thanks sir for the above itinerary. We also want to visit Ocean Park, on what day can we include it on our trip. Also, where we can buy tickets and how we can get there from Kimberly Hotel. Thanks!

Re: 4D/3D HK/MACAU SUGGESTED ITINERARY
by: HKinsider Don

Here's my personal itinerary suggestion to help you maximize your time in Hong Kong and Macau.

First, The Kimberley Hotel Hong Kong (pls follow link to read more about hotel info and to view location map) is a 4-star hotel located at 28 Kimberley Road, Tsimshatsui, Hong Kong. About 2-3 mins walk to/from TST MTR station Exit B2.

Day 1: The hotel location is superb as it is close to lot of well-know shopping malls and dining places. Then take a short taxi ride to TST promenade to visit the Avenue of Stars and to watch the spectacular A Symphony of Lights show at 8:00pm.

Day 2: 38 mins @ HK$17 MTR from TST to HK Disneyland (don't miss the fireworks show at 7:00pm) --> then you may proceed to Causeway Bay by MTR (45 mins @ HK$21.7) for shopping or you may opt for street market shopping just near to your hotel.

Day 3: Macau. When you reach Macau, just proceed to the Senado Square the main plaza, most of the attractions are a proximity to that area. Afternoon, if you want to opt for a Macau casino.

Day 4: Shopping then departure. If your in a group, it could be more efficient if you take a taxi. It is about 37 mins @ HK$260 for a taxi ride direct to HK airport from Kimberley Hotel.

Day 4. From Hong to a full day Macau tour.

Hong Kong to Macau by Ferry at Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Getting from 1 Austin to the Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal. Take the Tsuen Wan Line MTR trains at Jordan station to the next station, Tsim Sha Tsui station (3 minutes @ HK$3.7) and then take Exit A1. Take about 10 minutes walk to the Ferry Terminal (see a walking map route here) or take a short taxi drive.

* HK - Macau Ferry service hours is from 7:00 am to 10:30 pm.
Ordinary Class ticket cost HK$133 on weekdays and HK$148 on weekends.

* Macau - HK Ferry service hours is from 7:00 am to 10:30 pm.
Ordinary Class ticket cost HK$140 on weekdays and HK$155 on weekends.

* Journey time is about 60 to 75 minutes.

At Macau Ferry Terminal, (refer to this interactive map and click on the markers to know the name of attractions:

View Macau tourist attractions map in a larger map

Actually, there's a bus stop adjacent to the Ferry Terminal - the Terminal Maritimo.

Available Buses: 10, 10a, 10b, 10x, 12, 1a, 28a, 28b, 28bx, 3, 32, 3a, AP1

Bus fares usually around $4 and are in MOP currency. 1 Hong Kong Dollar = 1.0318 Macau Patacas (MOP).

Macau is quite small but taking a bus would kill your precious time as most buses have a 30 to 50 stops that makes it slow (not recommended).

It is recommended to take a taxi straight to your intended place of attraction that could be only about 10 to 20 mins drive from the ferry terminal (refer to the Macau attractions map above).

Many of Macau attractions or sightseeing places are located close to each other.

Hope this will help you plan your Macau itinerary.

Day 3 in Hong Kong. Like Ocean Park, the HK Disneyland offers its visitors about a complete full day activity that starts from 10:00 am and end up usually at 8:00 pm when the fireworks is finished. Afterwards, going to HK Shopping - Causeway Bay for Shopping is very doable and a great whole day itinerary for your HK stay.

Getting from 1 Austin Road to Disneyland. Get into the Jordan MTR station and take the Tsuen Wan Line trains heading towards Tsuen Wan station and get off at Lai King station. Interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line going to Tung Chung station and get off at Sunny Bay station. Finally, interchange trains to the Disneyland Resort Line trains going straight to Disneyland Resort station. Total train travel time is 36 minutes @ HK$16.6

Getting to Causeway Bay from HK Disneyland. Take the MTR trains from Disneyland Resort station to Sunny Bay station. Interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line trains going to Hong Kong station and get off there. Walk to the adjacent Central station and take the Island Line trains to Causeway Bay station then you may take Exit A to visit Times Square one the largest shopping mall in Hong Kong. Total train travel time is 44 minutes @ HK$21.2

Getting to 1 Austin Road from Causeway Bay. Get back into the Causeway Bay MTR station and take the Island Line trains going to Sheung Wan but you need to get off at Admiralty station. Interchange trains to the Tsuen Wan Line trains going to Tsuen Wan and get off at Jordan station then take Exit C1 and walk couple of minutes along Nathan road to Austin road. Total train travel time is only 12 minutes @ HK$9.7 (see MTR route map below)

MTR route map from Causeway bay to Jordan station:
MTR trains route map between Jordan and Causeway Bay stations

Re: HONGKONG-MACAU TRIP (first timers) ITINERARY
by: HKinsider Don

MTR Route Option 2. A little bit faster but need to walk longer.
Take about 10 minutes walk along the Austin road to the Austin MTR station entrance / exit F. Upon getting into the MTR station, take the West Rail Line trains going to Tuen Mun and just get off at the next station, Nam Cheong station then interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line going to Tung Chung station. Total train travel time is only 29 minutes @ HK$13.8.

Afterwards, follow the directional signs in going to the to the Cable Car Terminal (about 5 mins walk from Citygate Outlets). Take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car from Ngong Ping 360 Tung Chung Terminal all the way to Ngong Ping 360 Ngong Ping Terminal. 24 minutes stunning cable car ride @ HK$80 single trip or HK$115 for round trip ticket. Take a tour to all popular attractions when you arrive at Ngong Ping village.

Get back to Tung Chung by taxi or again by taking the Ngong Ping 360 cable car.

From Tung Chung, get into the Tung Chung MTR station and then follow the procedure in MTR Route option 1 above in reverse order only you'll get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station and then proceed to the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Terminal which is located at the Victoria Harbour close to the Avenue of Stars.

Getting to the Peak. Take the Star Ferry from TST to Central, 9 minutes @ HK$2.5. Nearby you find a bus terminal and take the bus no. 15C to the peak tram for about 10 minutes @ HK$4.2 and then take the Peak Tram to the Peak.

From the Peak head back to TST with same travel route procedure in reverse order and from TST, get a taxi that will bring you straight to Street Markets - Ladies Street Market then walk to the Temple Street Night Market and you'll end up to Jordan area which is close to where you stay at Austin road.

Here's an interactive map, connecting from TST Star Ferry Pier to Ladies' market to Temple street market and finishing at Austin road near Nathan road.

Day 2 in Hong Kong. Visiting to tourist attractions such as Ngong Ping 360 then to the The Peak and going to some of the Street Markets for theme street markets during evening is very doable and a good day to evening activity to maximized your day while in HK.

If you're staying in 1 Austin road, Kowloon then it would be a great location. You're a proximity to some of the famous street markets, to the popular Nathan Road that is known to be the main thoroughfare in Kowloon where a lot shops, restaurants and malls can be found, also, with a very efficient MTR trains is just steps away.

The nearest MTR access to 1 Austin Road is the Jordan station entrance / exit C1 or C2.

About Ngong Ping. I assume that you wanted to take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car from Tung Chung Terminal to Ngong Ping village. Otherwise, you can take a taxi for about 36 minutes drive @ HK$175 or a bus no. 23 (not recommended, too many stops and could take about 50 mins travel @ HK$17.2) from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping village.

So here's how to get from Austin road, Kowloon to Tung Chung cable car terminal and the most efficient way to travel is by taking the MTR trains.

MTR Route Option 1 (recommended to avoid long walk).
Get into the Jordan MTR station should be only a block away from your location. Take the Tsuen Wan Line train heading towards Tsuen Wan station but you need to get off at Lai King station then interchange trains to the Tung Chung Line going to Tung Chung station and get off right there to that last station then take Exit C to the Citygate Outlets and take your lunch. Total train travel time is 36 minutes @ HK$13.8

What you've mentioned is already so helpful.

Re: HONGKONG-MACAU TRIP (first timers) ITINERARY
by: HKinsider Don

For Day 1 in Hong Kong, the tourist attractions to visit like Ocean Park, Avenue of Stars, and then Victoria Harbour and opt for Symphony of Lights show at 8:00pm is a good whole day itinerary.

I assume that you will be staying somewhere at Jordan, Kowloon area. So the most efficient travel route between Jordan to Ocean Park is by taking the MTR train from Jordan to Admiralty station and then take the bus no. 629 straight to Ocean Park.

Here's the detailed information in getting to Ocean Park (Hong Kong Island side) from Jordan (Kowloon side).

From Jordan MTR station, take the Tsuen Wan Line trains going to Central station but just get off at Admiralty station (6 minutes @ HK$7.9) then take Exit B. Upon exit, you'll find the Admiralty (west) Bus Terminus where you can take the special CityBus No. 629 for about 15 minutes trip @ HK$10.6 / person. It is an express special bus route between Admiralty (west) and Ocean Park main entrance.

Here's how to get from Ocean Park to Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade (back to Kowloon side) where you can visit the new attraction, the "Avenue of Stars" and also, that would be a perfect place to watch the nightly show, the "Symphony of Lights" from the opposite Hong Kong Island side.

From ocean Park, again, take the bus no. 629 back to Admiralty MTR station. Get inside into the MTR station and take the Tsuen Wan Line trains going to Tsuen Wan but you need to get off just right at the next station, the Tsim Sha Tsui Station (5 minutes @ HK$7.9). Still at subway, walk about 10 minutes to the adjacent East Tsim Sha Tsui station then take Exit J. Upon exit, take another 5 minutes walk to the TST promenade or to the Avenue of Stars.
