Like i said. i brought my parents to macau and hong kong last week. the trip was awesome even though it was quite a hassle to travel from hong kong to macau with the luggages. (in my personal opinion). i will explain why!

Image

i booked the tickets pretty early like last year. Jetstar was the cheapest ticket i could find at that point of time and it flies to macau straight! unfortunately they stopped flying to macau last feb. so the plans have to be changed! i have to fly to hong kong then take a ferry over. ya.. and i was quite pissed actually. if not the trip will be so much easier.

Image

lol. we are kind of kiasu. haha.. we brought 2 cargo bags and a small cabin bag.

Image

finally we are in hong kong. omg. was so looking forward to the trip. and time passes by really quickly that now the trip is over .

Image

the plans was to spend two nights in macau then four nights in hong kong. so once we arrive in hong kong, we took a cab to the ferry terminal at the hong kong island side. ferry tickets are slightly more exp on the weekends compare to weekdays. i paid extra $5 per person on a sat to get to macau. and the ticket was cheaper when we travel back to hong kong on a monday.

so after we got our tickets from the ticketing counter. we wanted to enter early since we have to *lub* our luggages and my mum have to walk really slowly. alright, i really didn’t know we need to clear immigration to enter macau! lol. like as if it is another country of its own!! maybe it is just me who didn’t know about this. lol. so i was quite shocked that we have to clear immigration again before we can reached the gate to board the ferry.

and once we got to the gate, they then assigned seats to us by pasting a small orange stickers to our ticket.

actually if you carries small bags, u will have to carry it down a flight of stairs. pretty troublesome. luckily the staff was nice enough to lead us to a private lift and allowed us to enter the ferry slightly earlier cause of my mum walking condition.

Image

the ride was a shaky one. i must say!

Image

after an hour ride. we reached the outer habour ferry terminal in macau.. yup clear immigration again. then got to *lub* the luggages all the way to the opposite side to get the shuttle bus to our hotel. imagine how tiring it was for us just to get to the hotel.

Image

Image

finally after 15mins of bus ride. we reached our hotel : sofitel porte 16. it took us almost 5hours to get to our hotel room. lol. maybe if i know the traveling time is going to be so long, i might just spend the entire week in hong kong.

Image

the hotel was pretty awesome though. the room is clean and spacious.with a rather big casino right inside the hotel. it is walking distance to senado square and St paul ruins. but…..anyway in my opinion, try to go to macau during the weekdays. the hotels are  at least 100bucks more expensive during the weekends compare to the weekdays. it is crazy la.

Next post will be on our walking trip to st paul!

sorry for the disappearance, haven’t got the mood to blog.many things happened the past few days, probably the worst i ever felt since months ago. what can i do to lift up my spirits? 😦
