The details on reaching Macau from Hong Kong: Take the red subway line to its western terminus at Sheung Wan. Follow the signs and multiple escalators up out of the subway and directly into the ferry terminal. Skip the long lines on the weekend for one of the travel agencies on the same floor, where they can also issue you tickets for the Turbojet (and we didn't see any extra charges). BRING YOUR PASSPORT! You must go through passport control and present a departure card for Hong Kong, and you will get passport stamps on departure and arrival for both HK and Macau (score!). Seats are assigned, but feel free to move around a less than full ferry for optimum picture taking, even though there are no outdoor decks. Upon arrival and passport stamping in Macau, hop any of the free hotel shuttles (we recommend the Wynn or Hotel Lisboa), or walk down to the center of the gambling action at The Sands. Just don't let the energy on the gambling floor suck you in; the odds are most heavily in favor of the house.
