According to the official website, entry permits (visa-on-arrival) are only valid for 30 days and you don't need one as an EU citizen. What you'll get is 90 days of visa-free stay. If you leave Macau, you will need to go through immigration when you come back and you could then theoretically be denied entry. The same website specifies that 2 ...

Yes, you can visit Hong Kong and re-enter. To be exact, as an EU citizen you do not need a visa for Macau, you will be granted a 90-day entry permit authorization to stay on arrival. Each individual authorization will end when you leave Macau, but you'll be granted a new one when you return. Beware that, if you keep doing this, you may eventually be ...

It won't be possible. The roads near the airport are very complex and there are plenty of junctions. It's very hard to navigate between them. There is a sidewalk at Chek Lap Kok South Road but no one uses it because it is too far away. it takes more than 1.5 hours to walk from CLK to Tung Chung. Taking a bus only takes around 10-15 minutes.

Yes, it can get crowded! Buy your tickets in advance! Or it might be an hour and a half before you get on a ferry. [Note I base this answer on our experience on one particular Sunday, but it is reasonable to suppose that the situation is similar, at least on weekends, most of the year.] There are frequent departures (every 15 min), at least in the morning ...

I believe it would count because there is no exception listed. The key part off the government's website: If you hold a Working Holiday visa, the main purpose of your visit must be for an extended holiday. You can do any kind of work over the course of your 12 month stay in Australia, however all Working Holiday visa holders are limited to a ...

I have a 4 hour stopover Which is not enough time to do much outside any major airport, especially on foot. Assuming the 4 hours is arrival to departure time, consider the following: get off airplane walk to immigration, wait in line walk to airport door. We are now at 30 minutes, more likely 60 leave airport property You have already checked in ...

Bear in mind, current (August) daytime temperatures in Hong Kong are about 28-30C (~82-86F) with humidity approaching 100%. You can walk, but it will get uncomfortable fast and it's usually quite a dusty hot road to Tung Chung.

It is not uncommon to see a sign that says (in Chinese) RMB, HKD, MOP same price. Example. My recommendation is that you just change your HKD (or RMB) to MOP -- there are money changers all over the place (at least in the touristy areas, which is where you'll probably be). Occasionally someone might be willing to round things down a little - example: a ...

Nothing to add to Gilles informative answer - it's fantastic information that there is a footbridge (but for the OP's question, a four hour stopover does appear to be too short). However, if you're staying at one of the the two airport hotels, such as the SkyCity Marriott, here's what would be a terrific "urban jog" which is a 10k, making the Novotel on the ...

Hong Kong airport is on an island. There is nothing else on that islands except an exhibition center and related activities (ferry terminal, hotel, …). In order to go anywhere interesting, you need to cross to the neighboring island of Lantau, Tung Chung being the first neighborhood when going from the airport to anywhere overland. While I think there is a ...

Walking directions for Google maps says yes, it's possible: https://goo.gl/maps/MVoPY 57 min, 4.6 km from Airport station to the center of Tung Chung. Now I haven't tried this myself, and walking directions remain officially in beta... but a random Street View sampling indicates that the suggested route does have pedestrian walkways of some kind, including ...

The various Asian LCC (low-cost-carriers) airplane companies are the way to go. Check out Air Asia, Peach, Vanilla Air, etc. You should be able to travel for way less than US$300 return if you book at the right time. For example, this flight from Hong Kong to Osaka one way is less than US$120 on Peach: Similarly, this flight from Taipei to Tokyo one way ...

No ferries, much too far. Best you could do is a cruise ship, but the only ones that tend to do HK - Yokohama are the ultra-luxury ocean liners like the Queen Elizabeth, and then only once a year. If you have a lot of time there are some cargo lines that accept passengers. Cargo ship schedules are very flexible, you have to be ready to go when they say so. ...
