There are several ways of accessing Macau either via boat, plane or helicopter. Coming from Hong Kong is easily done which would account for the high number of weekend visitors. The helicopter option is become increasingly popular for both residents and locals who prefer the no nonsense approach to travel.

Alternatively, hoping on a boat is still what the vast majority of visitors do, with frequent departures and a scenic route; it is the most cost effective of the available options.

Macau International Airport

Macau International Airport is located on Taipa Island, which is only a ten minute drive to the Peninsula via the Macau – Taipa Bridge. The airport is home to about twenty airlines flying to and from Macau. These flights usually connect to major cities in Mainland China, Taiwan, Korea, and other countries in Southeast Asia.

Alternatively, the East Asia Airline and Heli Express Limited co-operates helicopters between Hong Kong – Macau – Shenzhen, and each flight from one destination to another is approximately 15 minutes.

By Sea

There are several points providing ferry services from Hong Kong including a direct trip from Hong Kong International Airport where you can bypass the immigration and transfer directly to the Skypier.

From Hong Kong Island, ferries are operated 24 hours a day. An hour trip from Sheung Wan to Macau is operated by Turbo Jet and Cotai Jet. These are offered every 15 – 30 minutes during the day and every hour at night.

A trip from Kownloon at China (HK) Ferry Terminal to Macau can take up to 90 minutes via ferries from New World First Ferries. Note that these ferries leave less frequently compared to those stationed in Hong Kong Island.

From Shenzhen Airport, take a shuttle bus service to Fu Yong Ferry Terminal. The terminal offers ferries to Macau Ferry Terminal in Outer Harbour. The journey takes about one hour. At Sekou in Shenzhen, the Yuet Tung Shipping Company runs ferries to Macau Inner Harbour Terminal on Rua da Lorchas.
