Good afternoon, On 28 Oct 2019 I need to travel from Hotel Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 to Hong Kong International airport to catch the Air France Flights to Paris. So I need to arrive in airport around 7.00 PM. What can I do?

ETripChina

Thank you for your inquire of the transfer. Here I list options for your reference: 1. Ferry boat: It’s fastest way to take the ferry boat directly from Macau Port to Hong Kong Airport, Skypier(3 boat trips running every day). But please note that boating trip is most easily influenced by natural factors, and once canceled you could not take the trip anymore, and you have to find a another way to catch your flight. 2. The Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus: You could take the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus for the transfer, it’s the most economical way, but please note that the Shuttle Bus only runs from Hong Kong Port or Macau Port. You need to arrange your personal transfers to the Port by taxi or by bus from Hong Kong Airport to the Port or the Port to your Macau hotel. 3. Private transfer by car/Van: It’s most comfortable way and save your time thus you won’t be worry about transfers from points to points. But the private transfer will cost a little expensive.

Hello, can i apply for the 5 day Shenzhen visa on arrival at the port when booking Hong Kong - Shenzhen Private Transfer (Alphard Van)?

ETripChina

Thank you for your inquiry of 5 day Shenzhen visa. Most European and developed countries are eligible for the 5-day visa, including US, UK, Canada, French, Australia, Germany, Korea, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. Because we do not know which country you’re from, so there is a possibility to be refused for you. Citizens of countries not mentioned should contact the relevant Chinese embassy or port to ask if they can apply for the Shenzhen visa on arrival. If you are traveling for business, please consult your local immigration center.

ETripChina

China visa required as Solo traveler. There are visa-specific travel agencies in Hong Kong (more information you’ll find: http://www.ctshk.com/english/useful/chinesevisa.htm ). They also offer tours, but the price will be relatively expensive. If you have the itinerary you are interested in, you can send us and we will offer you the price.

Thank you ETripChina Team, Just to clarify: (1) From HKIA to Zhuhai via HZMB, All passengers, including luggage, on can have to alight for Immigration and Custom clearance are Zhuhai only. There is no need to alight at HK port. (2) What about the return from Zhuhai to HKIA via HZMB? The same applies as above in item (1)? Regards,

ETripChina

Thanks for your questions. Yes. All passengers have to take all luggage down to go through immigration at Zhuhai Port only with our Alphard van. When you are travelling from Zhuhai to Hong Kong, it is the same, but more simpler checks at Zhuhai port. Regards

At Shahu lake, what do you mean by ice-breaking?

ETripChina

Normally there is boat cruise on Shahu by ornate boat or iron ship. During winter season, when it freezes, there’s trash ice on the lake, then you need to take the iron ship which is also called icebreaker. It may depend on the weather and the arrangement by Shahu scenic area, on the day you visit to take which kind of boat. The boat cruise takes about 20mins, after you arrive at the other side of the lake, you’ll enjoy the sand sculpture. As in the winter season, other recreational facilities may be closed.

Would it be possible for you to list the PayPal link in AUD instead as both my bank and PayPal charge a large fee to pay in USD?

ETripChina

For the payment link, PayPal only allows to give currency of USD, Euro, GBP and CAD. And actually, Euro, GBP and CAD will also change into USD before we draw it. There will be an exchange rate between USD and AUD, but you do not have to pay the PayPal charge, that will lay on us.
