    During the Autumn of 2018 the Hong Kong Zhuhai Macau Bridge (HZMB) opened providing land based travel between Macau and Hong Kong for the first time. Now, visitors are able to travel between the two sister SAR cities by way of cross boundary buses, registered commercial vehicles as well as the Golden Shuttle Bus which affordably carries passengers between the Hong Kong and Macau Port buildings (where you clear immigration on both sides).

    The Golden Shuttle cost is (HK$65 from HK to Macau and MOP$65 from Macau to Hong Kong). Tickets are purchased at the Golden Shuttle ticketing counters or the self-ticketing machines at both Ports and can be purchased by way of cash, credit card or HK based Octopus card if you have enough credits loaded. If paying with cash, you can use HKD on the Hong Kong side and HKD or MOP on the Macau side. The price remains $65 regardless of which currency you use.

    The shuttle bus operates like any normal shuttle. You are issued a ticket and queue up after clearing immigration on both sides. Passengers follow the into the golden coloured shuttle buses. There are several bus models both single and double deck models and they depart usually every 10-15 minutes, 24 hours a day.

    Seats are comfortable, some buses have better leg space than others, something that may be an issue with very tall people. However, this is also the case with local buses in both Macau and Hong Kong in general so you may already know what to expect. There is luggage storage under the golden shuttles as well, making it convenient for those using this service to travel between Macau and the Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) which is a short bus or taxi ride from the Hong Kong Port building.

    The journey between Hong Kong and Macau is around 45 minutes on the Golden shuttle. Allowing for time to clear immigration and await shuttle departure, you can expect total transportation time of around 70-75 minutes in all, meaning we now have lower cost and quicker travel and much greater frequency of journeys compared to the days when ferry travel was the only convenient way to go between the two cities.

    The Macau-Taipa Bridge (more formally known as Governador Nobre de Carvalho Bridge) is one of three road crossing of the harbour, linking the Macao peninsula with Cotai Island.

    This is the middle and shortest of the three bridges at 2.5 kilometres in length. It is also the oldest having been constructed and opened in 1974. Locally, it also referred to as the Old Bridge.

    Interestingly, this is the only bridge you can cross on foot between the peninsula and north side of Taipa Village on the other side. Otherwise, you are likely to use the bridge if you take taxi rides from one side or the other.

    Amizade Bridge (Bridge of Friendship) is one of three major bridges connecting the Macau Peninsula with Cotai, this one being the furthest east and is by far the longest of the three. Built in 1994, the Amizade Bridge is a two-way, cable-stayed bridge that is 4.7 kilometres in length.

    It is heavily used for traffic going to the Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal from the airport and Cotai Strip properties. You have fair views of the Macau Peninsula while crossing the Amizade Bridge. You will also cross under this bridge by way of ferry if you are visiting Macau from Hong Kong.

    This is the western most of the three bridge crossing that connect Macau to Cotai. It was opened in 2004 and is 2.2 kilometres in length. The bridge is a cable-stayed, double-decked structure that will be used by the future LRT line connecting Barra (future station on the Peninsula) to Taipa (Cotai).
