There are 2 ways to travel to Macau: 1.) Take High Speed Train from Guangzhou South Railway Station to Zhuhai Gongbei Station, or 2.) Take bus from Guangzhou to Zhuhai Gongbei Port. The trip by train takes about 70 minutes and is fast and safe.
Buy your ticket first before going the waiting area. The ticket office is in Room 3. You will see the Ticket Vending Machines (TVM) on the other side of the lobby. However, the TVM works only for ID cards. Foreign visitors must go to Room 3 to buy their ticket.
Zhuhai Gongbei Port, you must pass out of mainland China through immigration in Zhuhai and then take a short walk before going through immigration once more to enter the special administrative region of Macau, despite it being part of China. And like Hong Kong, mainland Chinese need a special permit to enter Macau while many foreigners, including chinese, only need a passport.
You will see many people going through Customs. This shows the very long waiting lines on Monday at 10:30 AM. If you are going to Macau, it is best to wake up early to take the early train to Zhuhai, or you will have to wait a long time at in the lobby of Customs.
You will see many kinds of tourist brochures at the Macau tourist service. They are free.
In Macau, if you want to go to other places, you can just take the free shuttle bus outside the hotel to the Hong Kong – Macau Ferry Terminal. At the Hong Kong – Macau Ferry Terminal, you can choose another free shuttle bus. Or you can just take a taxi to the places that you want to go. Tip: If you are going to Macau from Guangzhou, it is best to wake up early to take a bus or the high speed train to Zhuhai Gongbei Port so that you don’t need to wait a long time at the lobby of Customs . Weekends will be very busy! Afternoons are not that busy.
