Top ways to experience Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
How to get there
  • Sheung Wan • 4 min walk
  • Hong Kong • 10 min walk

It’s a Ferry Terminal that has a lot of construction work at the present time. Many restaurants, shops and travel agencies.

Stayed on the mainland overlooking the water, very appealing, especially at night when the light show is in full swing. We did the hop hop off bus tour on HK Island which enabled us to see most highlights. The ferry was easy but certainly an experience amidst the large crowds. If ever wondering how sardines feel in a can, this is the experience for you, there's no such thing as personal space, you just need to shuffle with the crowd and stay calm. HK dollars come in hand but your credit card will help if attached to Uber. International roaming kept us connected. Food was good. Jumped on a bus and went over and under the ocean to get to Macao in 45 minutes, not my favourite place but worth a look. Landscape and architecture were outstanding. The best view is at the top of the Tram trip on HK Island, spectacular views and the Forest Gump themed restaurant had outstanding food for a price. Coming from mainland China, we found everything a little more expensive. Stayed at both the Intercontinental and Holiday Inn, two different ratings. The cable car was worth the train trip as it was very long with a nice little group of shops at the end and of course the massive statue on the hill.

The people in the terminal were very helpful with directions. The terminal is bright and airy and signage in English is prevalent everywhere.

The terminal is relatively easy to locate and has great train access. But you have to be careful getting a ticket. There are two companies.
They have direct services to Macau and longer services that call in at other isalnds so get the Express.
You will need you passport for access. Hong Kong side is easy if you have an e passport. Macu side you must fill in the paper forms. Don't get these mixed up with the forms you filled out entering Hong Kong originally. leave them in you hotel safe as you will need that to exist Hong Kong.
Trip was comfortable and about 60 min long. You have an allocated seat so be early and ask for a window seat. Ferry has food etc.
Macau end has a Starbucks and a McDonalds not much else.
When you arrive in macau if you have not booked a tour then you can do it at the terminal. You will probably be approached.
We used the Tinkei International Travel company. $500 for two of us for a tour which could be 6 hours depending on your requests. Only way to see the place well.

The terminal is small and dated, toilets are dirty, would need a renovation. The embarkation waiting area can be crowded during weekends and holidays, not enough seats for passengers that are waiting to board the ferry.

Same as the Macau Ferry, the process is quite easy. The immigration and crowd control is efficient for us tourists. They guide us very well when it comes to direction or which dock to go.

This is built as an airport. It is big enough and has many gates with the sufficient immigration counters. Proper instructions are available and the staff/officers working there are very courteous.

This is the major transport hub between Hong Kong and Macau. Although chaotic in some sense, the ferry pier offers reliable and convenient trips at a reasonable price. Location is prime and unbeatable.

The Macau Ferry Terminal at the Sun Tak Centre in Central was closed down for nearly 3 years during the pandemic. Service between Hong Kong and Macau has restarted now which means you can once again take TurboJet and Cotai Water Jet ferries between the two sister cities from here.

TurboJet is presently offering 9 sailings a day between here and the Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal (Macau Peninsula) and around 6 sailings to/from the Taipa Ferry Terminal (Cotai). Cotai Water Jet is offering 6 additional sailings to the Taipa Ferry Terminal. Presently, evening sailings are only being run to/from the Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. This is far less than what was available in pre-pandemic times but in time both ferry companies should increase their sailings as demand for such service returns. Check their respective sailing scheduled published on their websites for updates when planning your trip.

You can buy tickets online at both ferry company websites or directly at their ticketing offices which are located just outside the restricted entry area into the ferry terminal. At the Sun Tak Centre you will also find a Starbucks, Toast Box, KFC and a couple other eateries if you need a place to rest or grab a coffee/bite to eat before catching your sailing to Macau. You'll find toilets there as well.

The ferry terminal is directly linked to the Sheung Wan MTR Station. You will also find a few buses that pass by the Sun Tak Centre as well as taxis if preferred.

The Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal is not hard to find. It is located near the Central Station.
The process of getting the ferry ride to Macau is very easy, make sure you line in the ticket window that points to Macau destination.
Buy your ticket. It is advisable to buy a round trip ticket because it will save you time lining up at ticket window on your return to Hong Kong.

After you receive your ticket, you will be guided to the boarding terminal by the ferry station crew.
This includes clearing with customs and immigrations.
Keep your immigration ticket that you received and secure it your self.

The ferry ride to Macau is almost an hour..
