Okay, these places are certainly making my wanderlust levels skyrocket! Here’s a pro-tip on how you can visit all FOUR places at ONE go:

Malaysia to Macao:

  • Take a flight (the whole flight takes around 3 hours 45 minutes)
  • Fly with AirAsia for the best deal in town!

Macao to Hong Kong:

  • Travel through the Hong Kong Macao Zhuhai Bridge from Macao to Hong Kong for just MOP65 (about RM35)!
  • Not just an architectural wonder, the newly opened bridge also allows straight passage from Macao to Hong Kong!

Crossing the Hong Kong borders to Shenzhen:

  • Take the MTR subway to Lo Wu Station, the immigration checkpoint to enter Shenzhen.

Shenzhen to Guangzhou:

  • Travel via the state-of-the-art Guangzhou-Shenzhen high-speed train
  • The train ride is only 40 minutes and starts from just RM30!

Thanks to the high-speed train and the seamless connectivity from the newly-opened Hong Kong Macao Zhuhai Bridge, travelling around the PRD has never been easier!

And from Guangzhou, you don’t have to rush back to Macao for your return flight back home as you can just choose to fly out from Guangzhou or any of the FOUR cities with AirAsiaWah so convenient!

And that’s how you can explore 4 cities with just one return flight!
