This review is only on the Hong Kong side of the bridge as there is a separate posting for the Macau side.

The long bridge provides a 24/7 connection between the three cities by land. It is also the cheapest way to travel from Hong Kong to Macau and to a lesser frequency, Zhuhai. The overall experience, although with significant improvement when compared with the bridge's early days, is still far from pleasant.

From any part of Hong Kong, getting to the bridge is inconvenient and time-consuming. Once you go for bus tickets, the line is long and unnecessarily clumsy. No offence, but the clientele is mainly elderly with no idea about their whereabouts at all. Then, another long wait to get on the bus to get out of Hong Kong.

While ferry service is considerably curtailed, this is still a viable transport option for last-minute trips. Is it comfortable? Probably not.

This giant, snaking bridge has impressive scale and statistics. At 55km, it's the longest sea-crossing bridge in the world, it cost almost US$20 billion and consists of 3 cable-stayed bridges, an undersea tunnel and 4 artificial islands. It’s relatively new and has only been opened a few years. Building started in 2009 and finished in 2018.
We saw the bridge from a few different angles during our recent trip to Tai O. Catching the Fortune Ferry to Tai O, we passed underneath it and later when we hiked to the top of Fu Shan Viewing Point, we saw it stretching out in the other direction also. Private cars need a special permit to use the bridge so most people will cross it by bus or taxi (or go under it like we did).

The trip on the Brody itself is efficient. About 45 minutes. Exiting immigration on HK side is quick enough albeit the immigration staff can have a bad attitude. Macau immigration is also efficient. The downside is the trip downtown. You can have large queues and few buses at the Macau terminal. One of the public buses does however go to senado square. 102 if I recall. Fare is 6 mop/ hkd.

Went with 4 friends. Easy fun trip starting from HK Sunny Bay MTR/bus station (B5 - $5.50) - to Zhuhai & Macau Terminal at Airport - coach then arrive Macau bus terminal - take 101X bus into town - then reverse trip.
Comfortable coach to Macau with double-decker bus back. Great views. Even saw a group of fishing trawlers fishing in a circle - to increase & share their catch? Never seen that before!
We had lunch at a great restaurant - Casa do Porco Preto (separate review) then finished up with traditional Egg Tarts/Coffee at The Venetian. A great day out! and cheap! No time for gambling! NNnnnooo :( Next time!

We had seen the cars and busses on the Macau Bridge disappear underwater (tunnel) the day before on the Ngong Ping cable car and were very intrigued. We caught the transport from the HK airport, where customs was a breeze, and the bus ride was very comfortable and smooth (about 35min). Busses leave every 10-15min. On the way back we took the high speed ferry. It is a little more expensive but we wanted to see the scenery and other islands on the way back.

A scenic & economical ride, breeze through custom in a jiffy. Much cheaper than ferry that is 3x the fares.
Ferry ride from HK airport to Macau has restricted schedule where we waited almost 3hrs for the ride to Macau. Chose coach ride on return trip and enjoyed the scenic ride, no hassle at customs too. Best decision and great savings too. BTW coaches leaves every 15min and travel at below 80kmh (display panel )
The coach ride takes 35 min as compared to 45min on ferry...

What a beautiful bridge. Safe, fast and easy transportation to Macao. Busses leave each 10 or 15 minutes. New busses! Price is very affordable (a lot more than the ferries. The only but is transportation in Macao. Taxis are not friendly, but at least they accept Hong Kong dollars...

It is nice to take the bridge once to go to Macau, but it isn’t as impressive at all as I expected. It also isn’t the quickest way to get to Macau if you are on HK Island or Kowloon. The ferry is faster as you don’t need to take the MTR. Although the ferry costs 165 HKD for a single journey and the bus only 65 HKD, the MTR also costs a bit.
We also needed more then 2,5 hours to get from the hotel in TST to Macau, whereas we needed less then 2 hours to get back with the ferry.

We ride the bus from Macau to Hong Kong and it runs around 60-68 km/h. The total travel time is around 40 mins, within that is a 6 mins tunnel ride (underwater). You’ll pass by the HK International Airport and on right side the Ngong Ping 360 (cable car).

The Hong Kong Zhuhai Macau Bridge (HZMB) is a 55 km crossing that opened in October 2018, providing an important land based transportation option between Pearl River Delta cities of Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau. Most importantly, the HZMB provides visitors to Hong Kong with 24-hour, quick and affordable means of travel between HK <> Macau, a good alternative for those who prefer to not use ferries that also link the two sister cities.

Using the bridge, all is simple and straight forward on the Hong Kong side. Visitors simply need to make way to the Hong Kong Port. This can be done easily from HKG airport (shuttle bus B5), Tung Chung MTR Station (shuttle bus B4) or from other areas of the city by way of taxi or Airport buses which include stops at the Hong Kong Port.

From the Hong Kong Port, you simply clear HK immigration and customs, purchase Golden Bus ticket (HK$65) from a self-service ticket machines or ticket counter. Then follow the green channel (1) to the Macau buses. Don't worry about accidentally following blue channel (2) to Zhuhai. Your bus ticket will clearly say HK to Macau. Bus attendants will not allow you to board the Zhuhai bound buses anyway. This stage of the process takes no more than 8-10 minutes.

There is space under the bus if you are carrying luggage. Each passenger is allowed one carry on luggage under 20kg (76X51X32m) but from what I've seen they are not strict at all if you have an extra or heavier bag. There is plenty of luggage space in the bus hold area. After having ticket validated at the bus, you simply board, take a seat and wait to leave. Buses are departing regularly so you won't likely wait long. The journey is around 40-45 minutes before arriving at the Macao Port.

From the Macao Port, you make your way through the main arrival building, clear Macau immigration and customs and proceed to onward transportation into the city. The entire process takes around 8-10 minutes.

Transportation options on the Macau side:

Taxi (approx MOP60-120) to major hotels in the Macau Peninsula and to the Cotai Strip is by far the most convenient and quickest means of transportation at this time.

Public buses 101X (24 hour service) and 102X (7am to 11pm) depart every 10-15 minutes. Bus fare is MOP6 per person and the journey takes 30-45 minutes. At this time, buses are useful for those staying on the Peninsula but not so great for those who need to make way to the Cotai Strip. If this is you, see the next section about connecting shuttle bus to the ferry terminals.

Lastly, there is free connecting shuttle service to the two ferry terminals in Macau from the Macao Port building, departing every 10-15 minutes. The journey to the main ferry terminal is around 10 minutes. Allow 15-18 minutes to ride to the Taipa Ferry Terminal. From the ferry terminals, you can directly board onward free hotel shuttles to the major properties on the Cotai Strip or elsewhere around the city.
