Macau Day Trip from Hong Kong
After exploring Hong Kong, experience the beauty of Macau with this unforgettable day trip that touches on all the highlights and showcases the best of this European settlement. Relax on a jetfoil or catamaran and set sail across the seas to Macau. Upon arrival, embark onto the mainland where you’ll wander the ruins of St Paul and A-Ma Temple, or visit modern establishments like the Macau Tower with your friendly, local guide. This popular tour includes round-trip transportation from your hotel and a full-day of sightseeing that’s perfect for making memories!

Please note: Due to tight schedule, this product is not recommended to travelers who need to leave Hong Kong on the same day.
What to Expect
Meet your driver at your Hong Kong hotel and make your way to the ferry terminal, where you’ll board a jetfoil or catamaran for a 60-minute ride across the open sea. Your full day of sightseeing kicks off when you step ashore the former Portuguese colony of Macau.

Take a scenic drive through the Guia Circuit and see where the famed Macau Grand Prix is held each year. The tight corners and quick elevation gains make this street circuit one of the most challenging on earth.

Pay a visit to Kun Iam Temple, where a young Marco Polo studied Buddhism. Listen in as your expert guide explains the significance of a bronze figure of Kum Iam—the goddess of Mercy.

After you’ve taken in the temple, head to the top of the 11th tallest tower on earth. Entry to the observation deck is optional (own expense) but the views are worth it, so be sure to carry your camera!

Next venture into Macau’s historical center where A-Ma Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built in 1488. You’ll learn about classical Chinese architecture and explore the grounds before enjoying an international buffet lunch at a local restaurant.

Make one last historical stop at the Ruins of St Paul—an ancient complex that used to be the site of the Cathedral of St Paul and St Paul’s College. Built in the 16th century by Christian exiles, a trip to the top of the ruin’s 66 steps offers up incredible views of the stone carvings and structural remnants around the site.

Finally, head to the Macau Casino for one last adventure and place your bets in the premiere card room. Play a hand or simply take in all of the excitement before heading back to Hong Kong by catamaran or jetfoil and returning to your hotel.

I have booked numerous tours via TripAdvisor in the past, but never had an experience as bad as this one. Based on the tour description we expected more focus on cultural aspects and less focus on commercial activities and forced shopping stops. After our arrival...More

Simply lovely! But allow more than a day to see all the sights.

Macau is a lovely place to visit but one day is simply not enough but if you only have one day, then try to start your day as early as possible. I can't write down all the things we saw here but a few hints...More

A day in Macau

It's easy to get around on all that free shuttle buses -- esp. the Venetian and the Lisboa ones. Can pretty much get around on one of those shuttles. Not into Casinos, so mainly strolled the old streets near the St Paulo. Great food.

You should check directly with the operator. They have a list of hotels they pick up from.

sorry, I am not an agent, check with your hotel reception, not sure where your hotel is from the Ferry, but, if within the walking distance, you can walk and take the ferry. Sorry can't be of further help, Enjoy Macau
