Suggested Macau Day Tour Itinerary

We spend the day 2 of our Hong Kong+Macau Tour in Macau. I prepared this Macau day tour itinerary to fit-in most of Macau’s tourist spots in one whole day. This itinerary applies for solo to small group travelers coming from Hong Kong.

Make sure you take the earliest boat to Macau so you won’t miss something out. You can take Cotai Jet which leaves Hong Kong  as early as 06:30AM or TurboJET which leaves at 07:00AM. Choose Macau Ferry Terminal (not Mo Taipa Ferry Terminal) as your arrival port since all casino-operating hotels in Macau have shuttle buses in the area.

some said that if you take the public bus it will eat a lot of time due to several bus stops so take a taxi. how much fare if taxi?

Sorry, we did not try the taxi.

The bus stops anyway is quick and won’t eat out more than 5mins of your time. Macau is a small city and traffic is pretty fair.

How much did you spent in your macau tour, including foods. Fare. Etc. thanks

Hi Jessica, We came from Hong Kong when we visited Macau and stayed only there for 1 Day and 1 Night.

Expenses Include: HKD320 for roundtrip TurboJet tickets, USD235 for 1N Hotel at Villa Nam Pam, HKD15 for Macau Museum Entry Fee, 250 for Food and Fares. All in all, we spent roughly HKD820.00 ≈ ₱4900 each.

Note that the hotel was shared for 4 persons, and we did not avail the extreme adventure offered in Macau tower which were quite pricey. To save more, have your return flight in Macau and visit the city in the last day of your tour.

Hi. Where did you buy your ferry tickets and how much was it? Someone suggested to get the one without the return time because Day and Night trips have different rates.

Hi Maria,

Our guesthouse’s caretaker bought it for us at a discount.

It’s true that night rates are higher than that of the early morning travel. If you want to book early check this link. Make sure that you observe your schedule to avoid inconvenience.

Wow…pagala gala ka na lang.
