ermmm dunno if i can post this here. any taken turbojet before? i wanna take it and go back from Macau to HK during midnight.

However, it states on the website that is HK-MACAU, MACAU-HK. thus wanna enquire if the HK refers to kowloon or HK Island only?

I will be staying at Kowloon thus dunno if i should take turbojet during midnight, or stay over a nite or take first ferry around 8plus in the night. pls advise thanks!
go to their website, on the left under Service Route Info, under Embarkation Terminals, or here: http://www.turbojet.com.hk/eng/route/embarkation.html

HK wold mean Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal, Sheung Wan.

Hey, so is it USD$10 for $40 more for a window room? Sounds like the hostel is only acceptable if you get the second type of room with parquet flooring and stuff, which comes only with a window room. But then again, it's still cheaper compared to other hotels.

The HK jetty which a bro mentioned is located in Sheung Wan, is on Hong Kong island not Kowloon. It's opposite HK MTR station. If you've got lots of luggage, then take a taxi from the train station and it will make a detour and U-turn to the ferry terminal. Shouldn't cost you more than HK$25.

Alternatively, you can take a taxi from outside the terminal to the MTR station. It should be relatively easy. There are lots of taxis in HK compared to Sg.

hey the gryffindor i quote the following;

---> the train station u mentioned is the HK MTR station? and the detour to the ferry terminal here means which terminal?


and i quote the following;

Alternatively, you can take a taxi from outside the terminal to the MTR station. It should be relatively easy. There are lots of taxis in HK compared to Sg.

---> over here u are saying to take a cab from opp the ferry terminal at HK to which MTR station? izzit over to kowloon side?

sorry i am very slow and lousy comprehension

to nickky23, from what i comprehen, if you are going to SZ any day from July 1st onwards, then u hv to apply the visa le. thus if u are going on 28th, 29th June etc then dun need to apply.

Actually the Sheung Wan MTR station is just outside the Ferry Terminal. Cabs are plenty just below the Ferry Terminal.
