Hong Kong via Macau Day 1: Exhausted


Hiya! I was at Hong Kong and Macau roughly a week with my family. All thanks to AirAsia free tickets promotion.

There’s not much to describe on day 1 as we touchdown in Macau International Airport, Taipa around 8pm. It was quite cold. We reached Macau Maritime Terminal, Macau half an hour later feeling totally exhausted. What’s worst is that we couldn’t get any earlier ferry tickets to Hong Kong. The NWFF ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui had been sold out so our alternate choice is TurboJet ferry which although travel faster it stops at Hong Kong Island instead. The ticket cost HK$176 pax.

Since we had some free time before boarding our 10.45pm ferry, we walked to New Yaohan for dinner. New Yaohan is having a sale and OHMYGOD the queue to the cashier is so long! It winds and winds.

Look nice eh but the chicken is so yucky… full of yellow fats. HK$21 dinner.

Roast Chicken Rice

We reached HK-Macau Ferry Terminal at Hong Kong Island around 12am and immediately took a taxi across Cross Harbour Tunnel to Yau Ma Tei. We reached Caritas Bianchi Lodge at 12.30am!!! I expect the room to be small (Hong Kong mah) but wow I’m really satisfied.

The lodge is 20 years old but it is very nice inside.

Guess what time we slept? 2.30am leh.

    Hedo, I tried from a shop called Choi Heung Yuen Bakery. Taste like ours one. πŸ™ Actually I wanted to try the original Portugese egg tart at Lord Stow, Coloane but due to time constraint didn’t go there.

    Dreamcatcher, everyone’s bed will be messy when we get up. About less than half of our rate.

    Jayce, yup great. πŸ˜€

    Keeyit, because we want to spend the last day in Macau instead of the first day. :hehe:

    Dear Che-Cheh,

    Stumble upon your HK blog whilst doing my research for my HK trip end of this year and have some questions that I hope you can share your experience with me.

    Can you email me or do you want me to put them here?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks.
