if you are thinking of going Macau from hong kong, go book a local tour in HK and you can save quite a few $$.
i just went this week and only cost me HKD181 per person + HKD50 tips for the tour guide. The tour includes a return Turbojet ferry ticket, a half day guided tour and a buffet lunch at one of the casino hotel. After lunch they will send you to The Venetian and you are on your own. You can choose your return timing, so book the 10pm (on weekdays) and if you want to return to HK early just go to the ferry terminal and be on the waiting list (normally on weekdays ferry not full).

Thanks - we've already booked and paid for our F&E 5D4N HK Trip tonight at a People's Park Centre Basement Travel Agency {Newly} - Just $704 all-in with taxes :
- CX flights with convenient timings [Depart Wed 30/12/09 AM and Return Sun 3/1/10 PM]
- 4N at Harbour Plaza Resort City with airport transfers
- Free Full-Day City Tour with Aberdeen, NongPing 360 SkyRail, Lantau Island etc ....
- Free Ocean Park OR Disney Tickets

My friend was saying - it was supposed to be a free & easy 'relaxing' trip for us - but looks like kinda 'jam-packed' already as also planning to pop over to Macau & Zhuhai on our own [possibly only do-able on the 4th day Sat 2nd Jan] as that leaves Ocean Park to the 3rd day Fri New Year's Day - followed by the Peak & Md Tussaud's after Ocean Park [really dreading the huge crowds there !!!]
Hope we won't experience 'horrific human jams' at the end of our free City Tour ending around 4 pm at the TST Area on the 2nd day or New Year's Eve - would like to be able to make it back to our hotel and watch the New Year countdown from the TV comfortably maybe have fun "cooking/heating up" our own 'supper' in the room kitchenette etc ......

Think not too bad a deal here
CX flights too at this time of the year etc .....
The hotel rooms are pretty big too and shopping etc nearby .....
Not that bad as have hotel shuttle bus in addition to public transport
Ur deal not bad. Still got throw in Disney admission ticket. In the end I have to find my own lobang of Disney admission ticket. Wonder where to get promotional ones.

Yes, there's a tourism promotion counter at the tunnel between the customs and the arrival hall.
