Macau to Hong Kong Ferry
The ferries running in Pearl (Zhujiang) river Delta and South China Sea between Macau and Hong Kong is the main way to reach from Macau to Hong Kong. The main ferry terminal in Macau is the Macau Ferry Terminal (Terminal Maritimo) at the Outer Harbour.
The Outer Harbour Macau Ferry Terminal itself look like an airport. There are designated windows to purchase the ferry tickets. After that you have to pass through Macau Departure Control, so that Immigration Officer can put a departure stamp on your passport. From there you can go towards your departure gate to board the ferry. This is a busy terminal handling most of the sea traffic between Macau and Hong Kong as well as the Chinese ports of Shekou and Shenzhen International Airport. Bus No. AP1 runs from Macau International Airport to the Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal.
There is a lesser known ferry terminal in Macau, located at Pier No. 11 at the Inner Harbour. This is a new ferry terminal building after its former Pier 14 site was given to developers by the Macau Government. It is very near to the Macau city centre and can be easily reached on foot. This terminal mostly services boats to Shenzhen, Jiangmen and Wanzai across the Inner Harbour in Zhuhai.
There are mainly three arrival ports in Hong Kong from Macau. First is the main Hong Kong Island, the site of the original British settlement. Most of Hong Kong’s highest skyscrapers and the financial centre can be found here, including its famous skyline along the northern coastline. Second is the Kowloon Island, most populous area in Hong Kong and at one time it was the most densely populated place in the world. Today, it offers a chaotic mix of malls, street markets and backpacking choices. Third arrival port is Hong Kong International Airport, which is situated at Lantau Island.
