There are few options when traveling between Macau and Hong Kong. The fastest and most economical method is the ferry (or water jet). It costs the equivalent of $25 USD. There is also an option to take a helicopter, but I assumed that the cost of that ride would cost slightly more than the ferry.
A few days after arriving in Guangzhou for the start of our trip, we were headed to Macau, a Special Administrative Regions (SAR) of China. Macau is known for it’s casinos and gambling industry. We weren’t there to gamble, just to check it out for the day (half of a day really) before taking a ferry to Hong Kong.
A quick post today: pictures from some of the signage I have encountered from one week in Guangzhou, Macau, and Hong Kong. I’m not trying to offend anyone here. I just find some of the signage funny. More often than not, the translations in China are good and I appreciate the effort as an English speaker.
If you were to guess where the biggest waterfall in China is located, what would you say?
China is home to some of the biggest mountains and longest rivers in the world, it would have to be near one of them right? That’s what I would have thought.
Here is a very basic itinerary for 3 weeks in China and Japan: Guangzhou, Macau, Hong Kong, Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara. Included in this post is an essentials packing list. In addition, there are some suggestions for what to pack and how to keep it lightweight. Traveling light can make life easier and more enjoyable.
After departing the Hocking Hills I decided, probably similar to a lot of people driving across the country, to put in some heavy miles through the heartland. The interstate and flatness of Indiana and Illinois encourage you to keep driving. I found a spot to stay for the night for a whopping $5 in Montrose, IL.
Say that 3 times fast! After a long night in Dolly Sods, I hit the road early and arrived in the Hocking Hills region of Ohio around noon. I don’t know how, but Hocking Hills State Park wound up on my list of places to explore; and I’m glad it did. I don’t think many people think of Ohio as a destination for natural wonders, but this is a real gem.
