Being such a tiny place, you'll have little
difficulty getting around Macau. Many, if not all,
places can be reached on foot. And if you get tired,
try the cheap taxis
, bearing in mind that
trips to Taipa or Coloane will attract a surcharge
on top of the meter reading of 5ptca from Macau, and
2ptca between the two islands. Otherwise, hop onto
one of the many buses
- some important bus
interchanges include the Jetfoil Terminal (referred
to as Nova Terminal), the Hotel Lisboa,
Almeida Ribeiro, Barra (near the A-Ma Temple), Praça
Ponte e Horta (near the Guangzhou Ferry Pier on the
inner harbour), Barra (near the Maritime Museum on
the inner harbour), the Barrier Gate (referred to as
Porto do Cerco) and the islands Taipa and Coloane.
As in Hong Kong, change is not given on buses, but
fares are low. There are two main bus companies, and
some useful routes include:
#3 and #3A from the Jetfoil Terminal to Hotel
Lisboa and Almeida Ribeiro.
#5 from Barra to Almeida Ribeiro to the
#21 , #21A , #26A and #28A
from Almeida Ribeiro to Taipa Village and Coloane.
#28B from the Jetfoil Terminal to Hotel
Lisboa and Rua de Praia Grande.
Finally, cycling is a possibility, on the
islands at least, though note that you are not
allowed to cycle over the causeway from the mainland
