Travelling around Shen Zhen

Hi,

I would like to check on these:-

1) We are a group of six, will be staying at shen zhen for three nites and one nite in hong kong. We are staying in hotel near Shaibu. Planning to visit zhu hai and if possiibe macau. What is the best option to go there from, shen zhen or hong kong? understand the journey from shaibu to shekou by metro is about an hour.

2) Is the ferry terminal in shekou just above the metro or we need to take another transport to the ferry terminal?

3) Do we need to book the ticket in advance or we can purchase it on that day itself? how many company operating ferry from shekou to shen zhen?

Thanks.

The Metro station for Shekou is in the ferry terminal car park, less than 2 min walk. Tickets do not need to be booked. The Zhuhai ferry goes every 30 min during the day (& at 6:30, 7:30 & 8:30 pm). There is only one company. From Zhuhai you can walk across the border to Macau & return to SZ by direct ferry.

Your itinerary might be a bit rush for the day if you visit Zhuhai & Macau on a day-trip. Have your hotel confirmed? If not, can consider, Shenzhen 2 nights, Zhuhai & Macau 1 night, lastly HK 1night, this might save a lot on traveling time if you really want to visit Macau.

Agree that Zhuhai +Macau would be too much for a day trip even if you just want to walk around Zhuhai for 1 hour to say you've been there. If money is not a problem stay the night in Macau - much more to do there at night, including House of Dancing Water. If budget is tight, go directly to Macau from Shekou; spend the day & evening in Macau & cross the border before midnight to sleep in Zhuhai.

What is the reason for visiting Zhuhai? Be reminded the border crossing from Zhuhai to Macau can be a nightmare with queuing for several hours (especially on weekends). If you go, try to go on arrival weekday.

I recommend to buy the ferry ticket ahead of time to be sure you get on the ferry you want. This is more relevant for the ferry between Macau and Shenzhen. Evening ferries may get full.

Thanks all for the suggestion and feedback. Main purose is to shop around in Zhuhai, will visit Macua only if time permit :)

Any good suggestion on where to shop in Zhuhai and how to go from the ferry terminal to the shopping area? Thanks
