Turbo jet (speedboat)
is the main mode of transport from Hong Kong
. There are a plenty of boats at Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal in Shun Tak Centre, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal or Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.
Between the two terminals, more passengers are willing to take the boat at Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal located in Shun Tak Centre, Sheung Wan. The reason is that Shun Tak Centre is sited above Sheung Wan MTR station; here is the terminus of many public buses and minibuses. Transportation here is very convenient. And there are also public buses leaving for the airport. Turbo Jets depart from Hong Kong in every 15 minutes, but the boats depart in only every 5 minutes during peak hours to increase the passenger flow. The whole journey in the boat takes about 55 minutes.
Previously, passengers can take boats at Haitian Terminal near the Hong Kong International Airport, but now visitors can not take boat from this dock any more.
If you have the endorsement of Hong Kong but do no have Macau endorsements, you can still go to Macau as long as you fill a form on the boat. And you can return to Hong Kong as long as the endorsement period does not expire, i.e. within seven days. It is not limited to 24 hours for you to stay in Macao if your Hong Kong endorsement is still effective. But and if you want to return to Hong Kong and your Hong Kong endorsement is out of date, you need to have a Hong Kong endorsement that has not been used. Otherwise, you can only exit to Zhuhai.
