5D 4N Hong Kong and Macau Trip

Do you like this story?

I went to Hong Kong & Macau with my wife & baby girl in early March 2010 for 5 days 4 nights. It was an exhausting trip but definitely exhilarating. The weather was just nice at about 11 °C (degree Celcius) to 18 °C (degree Celcius) on the first day but quickly risen to between 20 °C to 27 °C by the fourth day.

The mode of transport? We did most of our traveling on MTR & buses using Mini Octopus keychain and a lot of walking.

We planned our itinerary months ahead and as a result of the advanced planning, we managed to achieve more than 80% of our planned itinerary.

We took approximately 1,500 photos during the 5 days 4 nights in Hong Kong & Macau.

Here’s the short roundup of the entire trip (click on the links for full details of each place): –

Day 2

Hong Kong and Macau Trip, Day 2

Day 2 (Friday)
On the second day, it was less hectic during the day as we started the day leisurely by having Hong Kong’s most common breakfast — porridge or more popularly known as "Congee" before heading to Ocean Park Hong Kong.

In the evening, it was more hectic as we hurriedly left Ocean Park at 5 something to continue our journey to The Peak where Madame Tussauds Hong Kong resides. We explored Madame Tussauds before checking out Sky Terrace but the weather was foggy. After finally left The Peak, we descended through the Peak Tram back to Central and took MTR to Mongkok for Tim Ho Wan Dim Sum. Disappointingly, when we reached Tim Ho Wan at around 9 something, we left as we were truly ignored and saw the staff told one of the other customers who arrived later than us that there were no more seats available for the rest of the day. We strolled around in hunger until we decided to stop by KFC Hong Kong and afterwards back in Jordan, we took away McDonald’s Sweet Taro Pie and Iced Premium Roast Coffee to our hotel!

Day 4 (Sunday)
We started our day on the fourth day a little slow since we were not rushing anywhere that day. We had our breakfast at Mido Cafe in Temple Street at Yau Ma Tei.

After our breakfast, we stopped by Tin Hau Temple before we took MTR to Tung Chung as we headed directly to Citygate Outlets for cheap bargains!

Before we realized it, it was already late afternoon and we decided to skip a few destinations from our planned itinerary. We took New World First Ferry to Macau at 7:00 pm from China Ferry Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui. Somehow, the weather was not favorable and our ferry only reached Macau by nearly 10:00 pm. We managed to check-in to Royale Suite, Venetian Macao Resort Hotel by 10:30 pm. We had our dinner at Fatburger at Festival Food Court, strolled around The Grand Canal Shoppes before calling it a night.
