Travel Tip – Macau

I thought I will write a bit about the organization of my trip, that may help one of you if you’re planning to go to Macau. I split it more or less 3 sections Travel/hotel/Must do and don’t.

Turbo Jet

Singapore – HK Airport with Jet Star early morning flight (6:30am and landed around 10:30am) then

HK Airport Ferry Terminal – Macau Ferry Terminal with TurboJet. It is slightly pricier than taking the Ferry from HK but faster since you don’t have to go to HK and come back to Macau. It also has the advantage to avoid Customs since you stay in the International Zone while transferring from HK Airport to the Ferry terminal. One thing though, although the trip is about 45 min, departures are less frequent. You can check on the company website


Ole Tai Sam Un Hotel is a fine hotel, I booked the reservation (USD 95) with which has better price in Asia than Location is perfect – 5 min walk to Senado Square, staff speak English, the room was clean.
