Macau – Friday 4th November 2016 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,
two visits here as in between we went to Airshow China at Zhuhai.
This would mean another entry into China and so I arranged in advance with the hotel, to leave our luggage with them after our check-out that morning. They have a luggage store and it’s properly signed in and locked up. Very secure and so off we went with confidence.

To get to Airshow China from Macau, we did it this way;

Taxi from hotel to Macau/China border 90 HKD (£10)
Walk across the border crossing into China and the city of Zhuhai (Visa wise it’s classed as one entry into China)                                                  Taxi from outside the border crossing to Zhuhai airport 200 CNY (£24)
Taxi from Zhuhai airport back to the China/Macau border crossing 280 CNY (£32) – wanted 400 CNY (£47) but we talked him down.
Walk across the border crossing into Macau
Taxi from Macau side of border crossing back to hotel 85 HKD (£9)

Total amount to divided between us was £75, absolute bargain.


“Macau Aviation Business Exhibition” was in full swing after being set-up
the day before……before darkness fell, we departed Macau on another ferry which took us to the great city of Hong Kong.
