I know I’ve been absent for quite some time, I was beginning to worry that I lost all my followers. Anyway, good news is I’m back with a lot of photos and stories to share from my recent trips. I can’t wait to post them all! (Well, not all. But you know what I mean.)
First, let me share with you our itinerary— this might help those of you who are planning to go to Hong Kong and/or Macau.
The itinerary above isn’t updated, but it gives at least an overview of places to visit and estimated expenses.
Once you arrive in Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), there are quite a number of travel agencies situated inside the lobby. It is advisable to just buy from there instead of lining up on every ticket booth. We bought almost our entrance tickets from China Travel for only HKD1280/person and it already includes the following: Round Trip HK-Macau Ferry tickets, Victoria Peak (Tram + Sky Park + Mme Tussauds), Round Trip Ngong Ping 360 cable car tickets, Disneyland, and Ocean Park. It’s cheaper and more convenient.
Airport Express costs HKD65 one-way, I believe the original price is HKD100 but we were given a discount considering that we are seven in the group.
Transportation in Macau, meanwhile, is the best. Bus rides from hotel to hotel are free, so we did minor adjustments to our itinerary to align it with the bus schedule and the House of Dancing Water show.
Here’s what we did:
Macau Ferry Terminal
Margaret’s Cafe e Nata
Wynn Hotel (Dragon Show)
Galaxy (Fortune Diamond + Wishing Crystals)
City of Dreams (House of Dancing Water)
Wynn Hotel (Tree of Prosperity + Performance Lake Show)
St Dominic’s Church
Ruins of St Paul
We only spent money on food and HKD480/person for the House of Dancing Water Show(which deserves a separate entry because it was so awesome!).
Nan Lian Gardens and Snoopy World were scratched out from our itinerary as we didn’t have time to go there anymore.
I can’t imagine how 5 days and 4 nights are still not enough to do everything we want. Perhaps if we didn’t eat and sleep, we could’ve done a lot more. But then, that would’ve been suicide.
