HKIA Skypier to Macau or TST Ferry to Macau?

Hi! My family of 3, with 2 adult and 1 child, will be visiting HK/Macau in June. As our flight will arrive around 5.30am in the morning, there isn't any ferry schedule to Macau till 10.15am.

What will you suggest? Wait at HKIA, rest at transit area until the earliest ferry, or clear the immigration, take lugguages and travel to TST ferry terminal to catch the next ferry?

1st ferry at skypier will embark at Taipa, and I will stay at Hotel Sintra, it's further as compared to Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal, taxi roughly will cost how much?

Hope to get reply soon. Thanks in advance! :)

If I were you, I will exit Hong Kong Immigration, and take bus A11 to Macau Ferry Terminal in Sheung Wan (Fare HKD $40 adult, $20 child). From there take the frequent ferries (once 15 minutes after 7am) to Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. It will save you about 3.5 hours of waiting. It takes a little longer, less convenient. You trade that with time gain. Since you arrive very early in the morning, the immigration process should be fast.

Hotel Sintra has free shuttle pick up from MOHFT. But their shuttles are small and may be hard to find. Ask the workers there. If you miss one, you can also take the ones going to Grand Lisboa. Sintra is just right across the street (across San Ma Lo - the busiest street).

Hi,

+1 with buddy HappyFeet advice.

Take A11 to Shun Tak Centre for Turbojet ferry from HK Macao ferry terminal and arrive at Macau Outer HArbour terminal.

Then take free shuttle to hotel,or taxi- taxi fare around MOP/HKD40 incl. MOP/HKD3/luggage in taxi boot. Personally I will just take the taxi instead of the free shuttle.

Then you are about in the right time to pop over to Margaret for your first taste of its famed Portuguese egg tart. Next to Margaret,there is also a cafe,selling nice noddles.

Should be pretty fast that early in the morning. Mostly on expressways until you reach Macau Ferry Terminal. About 30 min if lucky or maybe 40 min in worst case, probably.

You pay the bus fare in addition to ferry fare for Macau. But added together, they are actually lower than the ferry fare directly from HKIA to Macau. Just a little work going through the extra immigration procedures and walking to catch transportation.
