Don’t believe the ‘there will always be seats’ part. This is not true. I had a nightmare journey to Zhuhai via Macau as there were no seats for the remaining ferries. This was on a Friday night before a race weekend at Zhuhai International Circuit. Advise to book ahead when this is on like this weekend!

Need to travel from Hong Kong Airport to Zhuhai after arrival at 9 pm. Noted no Ferry at that late hour. Any bus at that hour?

Please advise whether i should take the ferry to the China Ferry terminal if i wish to go to Mongkok/TST or the other ferry terminal ?

Dear Anna
Good to ‘talk’ again!
However, today, if you click on ‘jacqueline’ as in ‘transport to Zhuhai…’, you will get to the ETSI website, nothing to do with jacqueline, I presume. So, more tweaking is required?!

Hi Peter, thanks for alerting me. that is really helpful. i’ve changed some setting. it should work now. thanks again!

Hi Anna: I have noticed that the new format for “Recent Comments” are not connected correctly to the content. For example: the top item today is “jacqueline on Transport between HK and Zhuhai”, yet clicking on that item shows nothing by/on Jacqueline. I’ve noticed the same on other items.


To Stephen Kwan ‘s attention;

Thanks for the tip.

Could you please give us the schedule from HKG airport to Zhuhai and back?

Would be very nice…

Responding to anna’s comment, the traveler can take a direct ferry from Hong Kong International Airport to Zhuhai. Need not go to Sheung Wan to take ferry.

I see, and from Airport train station, to east Tsim Sha Tsui Station, what is the duration of the journey?

Thanks :)

The walking distance is about 10 minutes. Use the Kowloon Park exit.

The cost for a single-way ticket is no more than 200hkd.

Hi, there is a ferry pier at Tsim Sha Tsui that ferry to Zhu Hai ? I just want to know how far is the walking distance from Tsim Sha Tsui Mrt Station to the ferry terminal? And what is the cost for it to zhu hai? Thanks.

you can take the airport express rail to Central, from where you change trains to Sheung Wan. One of the exits of the Sheung Wan MTR station goes direct to the Shun Tak Ferry Terminal from where you can take ferry to Zhuhai. Or you can check if there is bus going to Zhuhai from the airport coach station. Just ask at the service counter of Hong Kong airport.

I am scheduled to arrive at the HK international airport at 17:10 in the afternoon, what is the most efficient way to connect to Zhuhai from the airport? I was told that I would miss the last ferry of the day that travels to Zhuhai from the airport.

How long does the journey take? From Zhuhai, the ferry is not Turbo Jet or Cotai jet right? Would it be faster to go from Macau to HK instead of Zhuhai to HK? However, I am staying at the Gongbei border in Zhuhai.


Thanks Anna.
If I visit Guangzhou instead, what do you think..? Is it too much of travelling…etc
I am still considering between GZ and Zhuhai…

I will be visiting HK and tot of visiting Zhuhai as well. Hv nt been there before..any advise hw many days shld we spend there? 1..2 days?

Thank you in advance.

the easiest way is go to the sheung wan ferry terminal to take ferry to zhuhai. the ferry service is very frequent. just go there and buy tickets and get on board. of course, before embarking, you will go through the immigration first. the ticket counter for zhuhai ferry is on the same floor as that for macau ferry. just follow the signs in the terminal and it will not be difficult for you to locate the counter.

Thanks to all. Appreciate your feedback and advice. Have a nice day and thanks again 1

go to the ferry terminal, either the one in tsim sha tsui, or the one in sheung wan. there are signs showing you where to buy tickets. buy the tickets and go through the ticket turnstile, and then queue up for immigration, and board the ferry. after the ferry, you go through the immigration at the China side.

I wil be visiting Hong Kong for 4 days with my wife. Can you advise me step by step on how I can go to Zhuhai from Hong Kong? We wish to spend a day in Zhu hai anbd return back to Hong Kong. Thank you very much.
