Klook Review + Ferry Review: Cotai Water Jet Experience

by - Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Our Hong Kong / Macau vacation started with travelling from Hong Kong to Macau. 

Why did we choose to travel from Manila → Hong Kong instead of direct flight from Manila → Macau? 
  • Because this trip was a part sponsored by my current employer. Thank you so much **** for this Hong Kong trip benefit

I planned this trip for about 6 months. I booked our roundtrip tickets last July 2017 and our trip was last February 4 - 8, 2018

Tip: This is applicable for all Filipinos out there. If you're going to a visa-free country like Hong Kong, Macau, etc., booked first a roundtrip ticket for about a couple of months or a year before. Then, start your itinerary and looked for a nice and affordable to stay in. I'm not bragging about it though but I didn't find it hard to sponsor our family of 4 trip to Hong Kong and Macau because of this kind of planning.

Fast forward, I heard of good reviews from others about Klook. They have great travel deals. I'm appeased with the good reviews so I availed roundtrip CotaiJet Ferry Tickets from them. We chose Cotai Water Jet instead of TurboJet because we're staying in Cotai area, Parisian Macao. I will post our hotel experience on the next blog post.

Booking Process: 

It's very easy to book from them. Sign-up on their website and then head over to this link https://www.klook.com/activity/1456-macau-cotaijet-macau/. Choose your desired date of travel and pay through your credit card. After a few minutes, you will receive your booking information through Bookings dashboard as well as confirmation email on your e-mail's inbox.

For roughly USD 153.75 / around Php 8,000+, we already have roundtrip ferry tickets for 4 persons to/from Macau's Taipa. It's a good deal, right? 

Tip: Choose Cotai Water Jet if you're heading to Taipa, where Venetian Macao, Parisian Macao, Studio City, etc. are located. However, choose TurboJet if you're heading to Macao's Outer Harbor Ferry Terminal, near the city area. 

It takes an hour to get to your destination. I suggest to just take an earlier sailing time because the sea is very rough on the late afternoon or night time.

Sailing Information:

Head over this link to check the ferry's schedule.

Where to redeem the ticket(s)?

Present your printed voucher(s) at their partner agency, Beng Seng Travel, to redeem the exchange ticket(s).

Note: You can only redeem the voucher(s) in Hong Kong so better to have it exchange at the Beng Seng Travel counter even if you're not sure about your exact time of travel. The voucher is only valid on the specified date (except time).

Next, use the exchange ticket to redeem the CotaiJet ticket. This is only applicable on Macao → Hong Kong travel. For Hong Kong → Macao, they already gave us the real CotaiJet tickets.

What I love about this procedure, it's cheap, very fast and efficient. Thank you Klook! 

Redemption Counters:

Beng Seng Travel - Shop 310 - 312, Shun Tak Centre, 200 Connaught Road, Hong Kong
  • Opening Hours: 9:00 am - 1:00 am

I was shocked when I received 4 free Eiffel Tower tickets from Cotai Water Jet valid until February 28, 2018. 

When I checked their website, they have this on-going promotion and valid until June 30, 2018. Terms and conditions apply.

As usual, I was a bit overwhelmed about my first ferry experience that I forgot to take a photo of the whole cabin. I'm a bit sorry for that. Plus, I also took precautionary measures while riding the ferry. I didn't stand up or went to a comfort room.

But for a brief preview, here's what you can expect from their cabin. 

  • Cotai First - located on upper deck area of the ferry. It offers a great view of the outside. Passengers are given a complimentary food and beverage. It's not yet available on Klook.
  • Cotai Class - located on the lower deck area of the ferry. Even though it's cheaper than the first one, it's modern and comfortable enough to stay here. It's available on Klook.

  1. Hi can i ask u something, how if i came from airport ? How can i redeem the ticket ? Thankyou

    1. Hi Yolanda! I hope my comment is not too late to answer your question. If you will avail the ticket(s) from Klook, you can only redeem it at Beng Seng Travel counter in Shun Tak Centre, Sheung Wan. Otherwise, if you won't avail the ticket(s) from Klook, there's so called "SkyPier" at Hong Kong International Airport. This is a restricted area and only transit passengers are allowed to go. In that case, you must go to the website of Cotai Water Jet and book from there.

      Here's what I did when we travelled from Hong Kong Airport to Hong Kong - Macau Ferry Terminal. After immigration, etc., we rode in a public bus A11 bound for North Point Ferry Piers. You will need to exit at the Macau Ferry, Connaught Road Central (Stop 4). Just look at the sign displayed in the bus to avoid the risk of missing that stop. After you exit the bus, enter the building "Shun Tak Centre" and look for Beng Seng Travel counter. If I'm not mistaken, it is located in 2nd floor near the boarding gate of Cotai Water Jet.

      If you have more questions, you can comment down below. Thanks. :)

  2. I am planning to visit Manila, I start google to book tickets and just land on your page found inspiring klook post, thanks keep sharing!!

    1. Hi Darren! Hope you will enjoy visiting Manila. A visit to Manila is not complete without going to Intramuros, which is rich in Philippine history. You can also try food crawl in Binondo. Have a nice day! :)
