Our last day of the trip, this time we wake up a bit late. We’re really exhausted on our walk-tour yesterday. We had our breakfast at Ah Mah Kitchen at Prince Edward before going to our next destination.

Drinks @ 7HKD I recommend their milk tea
bakeshop
While walking around I found this curious bakeshop and because I love pastries though my tummy is full I bought some and decided that this will be my lunch.

10:00-11:00     MTR to Central Stroll around/Lunch

Caffee Mocha Venti in HK a little bit cheaper than Macau @ HKD43

11:00     Check and Refund Octopus credit
Before leaving HK do not forget to refund the remaining value of your Octopus Card.  To do this just go to any MTR Customer Service Centre to apply for a refund. In my two days here in HK, I still had 50HKD on my card.

Standard On-Loan Octopus Price: Deposit $50 + Stored Value $100 = Price HK$150

12:00     Hongkong Macau Ferry Terminal

Waiting for the ferry

Before going to our next destination we decided to avail the Ferry Terminal Luggage Service.

  • Luggage storage service is available at both Hong Kong and Macau ferry terminals.
  • Rate: HKD/MOP 20 per piece per hour

This is highly recommended if you will be following my walking tour🙂

19:00  Airport
From Senado Square you can ride Bus 3, 3A, 10 or 10A to the Ferry Terminal. We pickup our bags and paid around 70MOP for the luggage storage.

We had a little misadventure on our way back to the Airport, I was telling my husband and friend that we should take the free bus to the Casinos and from there take the bus going to the Airport. Unfortunately due to majority decision we decided to ride Bus 26 which is heading to the BORDER OF CHINA! If you are thinking that this is scary you’re definitely RIGHT, we’re freaking out. Everyone in the border doesn’t understand English, luckily there is a group of yuppies who help us and suggest that we ride the taxi directly to the airport.  If you’re planning to take the public bus from the Ferry Terminal pls. make sure it is Bus26A or better yet take the free casino shuttle.

19:30   Dinner at Airport
