How to get to Hong Kong from Macau

Hi, I'm planning to stay at Macau Hard Rock Hotel. Would like to check if I take turbojet from HKIA to Macau, are there any free shuttlebus at the ferry terminal to the hotel?

From Macau Hard Rock Hotel, which ferry would be the closest to take if I'm going back to Hong Kong?

Hello Belgalen

Welcome to the Macau forum here on Tripadvisor.

See Top Questions (FAQ) - HK to Macau transport and HKIA SkyPier to Macau on the right hand side of this page for helpful information on this commonly asked question.

Specifically in regard to your questions....

>>>Would like to check if I take turbojet from HKIA to Macau, are there any free shuttle bus at the ferry terminal to the hotel?<<<

Yes, you can take the City of Dreams (COD) shuttle bus service from either ferry terminal in Macau. City of Dreams is the complex where the Hard Rock Hotel and Cafe are located.

>>>>From Macau Hard Rock Hotel, which ferry would be the closest to take if I'm going back to Hong Kong?<<<<<

The Taipa temporary ferry terminal is closer to the Hard Rock Hotel but the better ferry terminal is the Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal on the Macau Peninsula, particularly during the summer months. From here ferry service is every 15 minutes from HK and you can wait outside where its not hot.

Hope this is useful.

Beware of taxi drivers in Macau over-charging fares. There's been a growing number of taxi drivers pre-charging at lease 100MOP, not charging by the meter. Especially in the evening at airport and ferries when shuttle buses are limited. Please don't give-in to these drivers to prevent these opportunists.

OuijaAble, do you have a reference for this? It's not something I've heard of before, at least not from registered taxis. Of course, if a traveller uses one of the touts that infest arrival halls after most of the security police go off duty, then that's your problem.

There will always be enough registered taxis waiting at the ranks just outside the arrivals halls, whether at airport, land border or ferry port. USE THEM. And make sure you have enough small change in MPO, HKD or RMB to pay your fare: it is unfair to cabbies to expect them to accept other currencies or make change for big bills like HKD500.

Hello OuijaAble,

This is a rather important problem if it is indeed the case. Can you please share more?

Did you experience this yourself or is this something you read somewhere? Either way, if you could tell us more details this would great assist in our advising future TA members that visit and use this forum.

Related, there were reported cases of taxis being caught overcharging last week during our Typhoon. However, like Oisaan, I'm unaware of problems of our registered taxis over-charging visitors arriving late in Macau

Just Last Wednesday, I arrived at the airport at 10pm. I walked to the public taxi queue next to the shuttle bus area. A few taxis parked and drivers were standing outside of their cars asking everyone where they were going. Then they say we have to pay at lease 100$ in advance. Most people refused and choose to wait for the shuttles. But the shuttle buses were few. And some tourists did take the taxi, despite the charges. I wanted to take photos of them, but I was quite dark.

OK, thanks for the extra information.

Last Wednesday was when a major typhoon passed Macau. I don't know what time the T8 signal was lowered in Macau, but if it was still up, then the cabbies' insurance was invalidated, so the flat fare was to cover their taking this risk.

If the T8 had already been lowered, then these drivers were out of order, and if the driver at the head of the rank was insisting on $100 up front (what currency?), the correct procedure would be to note down the registration plate of the cab and call 119 (Public Security Police) to report the abuse.

Thankyou again for sharing, and giving the opportunity for other travellers to receive the benefit of your own unpleasant experience.
