Off to Hong Kong

20 May

We woke up at around 6, took a bath, packed our things, and checked out of the hotel. By 8, we were already on a bus to the Ferry Terminal.

I can't remember the bus number but I remembered we paid MOP 3.20 each

This time, we were headed to Kowloon (Tsim Sha Tsui China Ferry Terminal) since it’s nearer our hotel. So we went on the New World First Ferry instead of Turbojet, which goes to Central.

Buying our tickets for the 8:30 AM ferry

There are certain sailing times in certain days when tickets are offered at a discounted rate. So be sure to check their site for the schedule and prices.

We were lucky! We only paid 135 HKD instead of 155 HKD.

Again, you will have to be ready with a departure card to show to the immigration officer.

We got on the boat on time but the trip took longer than I expected. It wasn’t a smooth ride, too. I almost p*uked! 😦

I was so glad when we docked. I was still feeling sick when I was lining up at the immigration counter (This time with my arrival card that was given onboard.). But then, I was already in Hong Kong. The excitement made me forget the seasickness in no time! 😉

    How many hours it took you to arrived Hong Kong? Also, it is doable to go back-and-forth in just a day? What hotel you stayed in Hong Kong and what’s the rate/room?

    Thanks

      The boat ride was more or less an hour. Yes, you can go on a day trip to Macau. The ferries are available very early in the morning until late at night. Please check the link on my post for the schedules. While in HK, we stayed at Golden Crown Guesthouse. I have a separate entry for that. You can just check it out. Also, here’s the link for the rates: http://www.goldencrownhk.com/hotels_hong_kong/roomprice.
