I believe that many people would like to visit Macao when they visit Hong Kong.
So, how to travel from Hong Kong to Macau?
One of the various ways is by FERRY and I personally think that this is the cheapest and most convenience way. It is just about 1 hour from Hong Kong to Macao.

However, I do not recommend you to buy the ticket online if you are not going to Macau on the first/second day when you reach Hong Kong. You can always choose to buy the ticket at the ticket counter located at the ferry terminal 1 or 2 days before your trip to Macau. Sometimes, you may get a cheaper price when you buy the ticket at the ticket counter.
They will assign a seat number for you when you check in. You may choose to depart from either one of the Ferry Terminal in Hong Kong depends on your location. However, Ferry depart from China Ferry Terminal will only arrive at Macau Outer Harbour
