On transit to the USA, I was in Hong Kong for 2 days, since I have seen Hong Kong last year I decided to do a day trip to Macau by Ferry. The TurboJet Ferry took less than an hour and the Super Class was very comfortable with a serving of breakfast, leather seats and so on, costing about HK$240 one way in their Superclass. Onward from Hong Kong to Macau, I took the 9 AM ferry and the return was at 5 PM.
To visit Macau remember you will need your Passport, so don’t leave them at your Hotel in Hong Kong and also your Air Ticket copy to re-enter Hong Kong. Both Hong Kong & Macau allows Indian Passport holders to stay for few weeks on a visit (VISA on entry) so no need to get a VISA in advance. Macau has its own currency – Macanese pataca, but you can freely use in every place Hong Kong dollars (and 1 MOP Dollar is approximately equal to 1 Hong Kong Dollar).
When in Macau I took a Grey Line City tour for HK$120 or so from the visitor centre in the ferry station – it was worth it. The tour covered most of the highlights of Macau (leaving the Casinos which I was not interested as I have seen enough in Las Vegas) including “St. Paul’s Cathedral”, “A-Ma Temple”, “Macau Tower”, “Macau Museum” and others.
Taxis are available easily in all places in Macau. McDonalds and Pizza Hut is available in tourists area, I went to Pizza Hut so that I can get Vegetarian food.
