GET­TING THERE

• Cathy Pa­cific flies reg­u­larly from most Aus­tralian cap­i­tal cities to Hong Kong. If your ticket or Fre­quent Flyer sta­tus al­lows you lounge ac­cess, check out the air­line’s Pier Busi­ness Lounge, which is one of the world’s most stylish. cathay­pa­cific.com

There’s a 70-minute ferry con­nec­tion from Hong Kong Air­port’s SkyPier di­rectly to Macao. tur­bo­jet.com.hk/en

WHEN TO GO

Macao’s rainy sea­son is April to Oc­to­ber, with July to Septem­ber the mon­soon sea­son. Mid-Oc­to­ber to De­cem­ber (au­tumn into win­ter) is re­garded as the ideal time to visit. Macao is mainly a week­end des­ti­na­tion so you’ll find good mid-week deals. Hong Kong is more a busi­ness des­ti­na­tion so it can be (rel­a­tively) quiet

– and cheaper – at week­ends.
