    • Macao to Taishan travel with children

      by marksebba Online Now Sep 25, 2009 at 2:54 PM

      Hi, I am planning to visit Hong Kong, Macao and Taishan at Easter 2010 - would like to spend a day or so in Macao and a day or two (at most one night) in the Taishan area. We are a family of four, with children aged 7 and 9. Could anyone advise us on convenient ways to travel between Macao and Taishan? I know there are buses, but are they all suitable for children?

      In the Taishan area, we just want to sightsee, we have no particular person or place to visit. Any suggestions welcome!

      I'm visiting this weekend with friends but I haven't been able to find much information about hostels on the top of the mountain online. We are hiking up during saturday, then plan to stay overnight to see the sunrise. We are low on funds though and would rather stay in hostels. Does anyone know the deal?

    • HK to Taishan

      by brouhaha63 Online Now Jul 24, 2008 at 10:55 PM

      I have heard that in the past, you could get a visa to enter China from Hong Kong while you were there and that it was pretty quick. I am planning to be in Hong Kong in December, and would like to take a day trip to Taishan. My questions- Is that enough time or should I plan for an overnight? Are there any organized tours (that might make it easier to get a group visa)? Should I get a visa for China in the US or would I be able to get it when I am in Hong Kong? Thanks so much for any insight.

      I was wondering about how many US dollars would it cost to go to San Ba from Taicheng in a taxi?

      Also, are there any other transportations to the villages in Taishan other than taxis? If so, how much would that form of transportation cost?

      Thank you very much
