Visiting Hong Kong from Macau Via Ferry Boat

Got to travel to Hong Kong from Macau! We had to go to Hong Kong via ferry boat and back to Macau again for our departure back to Manila because our friend booked the wrong flights. He booked a flight from Manila to Macau and Macau to Manila. Which was should be Manila to Macau and Hong Kong to Manila. So you should be careful when booking you flights. This is a waste of time because one ferry ride takes around 1 hour and not to mention packing our baggages, ferry ticket and going to the ferry terminal.

What we did was upon arrival at Macau via Cebu Pacific, around 9:30pm. We went straight to the ferry terminal for Hong Kong. From what I know, the last ferry leaves around mid-night, so no need to be in such a hurry. We were lucky that the next ferry leaves around 10:15pm so we just waited for few minutes before departing from Macau. We arrived at Hong Kong around 11:30pm and went straight to Cosmic Guest House. We really had a hard time finding this place because it was dark and it didn't have signboards. Luckily there was a police mobile car in the area so I ask him. A bit difficult because they don't speak english. After 30 minutes of walking and looking for it, We finally got to the guest house.

Summary of what we visited in Hong Kong:
First  Day
Hong Kong Disneyland Main Entrance
The next day we dropped by Avenue of Stars since it was near Cosmic Guest House. After walking around the area, we went straight to Hong Kong Disneyland. This is one of the best places to go to if you're traveling with friends. Every Halloween they have dancing zombies and Halloween parades.

Second Day
Nice view of the Victoria Peak Building
We first went to The Peak. Which houses the Peak Tram, Sky Terrace and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. We got off on the wrong MTR station so we had to walk about 15 minutes. We wanted to try everything so we purchased the Peak 3-in-1 Combo Package. The most expensive ticket was Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, but it was worth it as you would see so many realistic wax statues.

We went straight to Ocean Park. It was Halloween, so there were night tickets available that had special Halloween attractions inside the park.

Third Day
H&M Store Logo
Cute store design of Prada in Hong Kong
On our third day we should have gone to Lantau Island, but it was too far and would take up to much time getting there. So we decided to just go shopping instead. They really wanted to go to H&M. We ended up going to several branches of H&M. After checking out we went back to Macau.
