Shenzhen China to Macau via Ferry

Shenzhen China to Macau via Ferry

There are multiple ways to get from Shenzhen to Macau including via bus, ferry or even a helicopter. Being in Nanshan District of Shenzhen I chose to go via the ferry at the nearby Shekou Port.

Shekou Port is pretty simple, basically, it’s just one big room, and as you walk through the front door head left to see the ticketing counters where there is even staff who thankfully speak English. At the terminal, there is a small stall selling items from a bakery, a couple newsstands and a stand selling mobile phone sim cards for Hong Kong and Macau. There is also 2 different ATMs and the one I tried accepted a foreign-issued Visa card, plus there is a currency exchange.

The Star Ferry Hong Kong

The Star Ferry Hong Kong

Stra Ferry is a company that operates a ferry service that joins the Kowloon Peninsula to Hong Kong Island. 

You could almost call the Star Ferry service one of Hong Kongs historic institutions, its been there since 1898 humbly carrying people from one side of the harbour to the other.

The ferrys themselves are still the classic old ships, featuring beautiful timber construction with a large open feel, and nice big windows to take in the view of the harbour. the ferrys have a lot of charm about them and when matched with the impressive harbour views it’s no wonder that National Geographic rated this one of the worlds top 10 ferry rides.
