TIPS ONLY A LOCAL WOULD KNOW
Getting There: There are two ferry services running between Hong Kong and Macau, one running to the old terminal downtown and the other along the Cotai Strip where many of the new casinos are located. For a quicker commute, hop aboard the frequent helicopter services. Macau International Airport (MAC) has flights arriving from all over Asia.
Common Currency: The official currency is the Macanese Pacata (MOP), but the Hong Kong Dollar is also accepted on an equivalent exchange rate. However, Pacatas are not likewise accepted in Hong Kong, so make sure you change (or spend) your Pacatas before leaving.
Golden Week: A seven-day holiday honored by the Chinese that encourages travel, spending and time with family. Perhaps not the best time to visit as hotels will be booked and the streets will be overflowing with foot traffic.
