Hong kong/Zhuhai/Macau Trip 2012 - Day 3 - Zhuhai Trip 2012- Taking the free shuttle bus from Jiuzhou Ferry Terminal to Gongbei

PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG.

Once we cleared the immigration at the arrival hall, we exited from the sliding door of the arrival hall and we turned left and made our way to the departure hall where we could see the sign "Bus Station". It was on the right hand corner of the departure hall.
Once there, we spotted this corner with security checks, etc. It would be difficult if you dont understand mandarin. On the screen, they would flashed which bus is leaving to which city/area. We were supposed to take the free shuttle bus from Jiuzhou ferry terminal to Gongbei Border (the border between Macau and Zhuhai).  The screen flashed in mandarin that a free shuttle bus to Gongbei would take 10 minutes and is about every 40 minutes interval. In mandarin free shuttle bus to Gongbei is translated as
"免费公车往拱北" Hope this will help those who do not understand mandarin.
Before we board the free shuttle bus to Gongbei, we need to show the staff our ferry tickets for the free ride.
Do not board the wrong bus, always make sure with the driver if the bus is heading to Gongbei cause the other buses are heading to other parts of the China. If you do not understand mandarin, best to print out the mandarin words "拱北" (Gongbei).
After a ten minutes ride, we finally arrived Gongbei Border. The shuttle bus will parked infront of Friendship Hotel. Our hotel is Yong Tong Hotel which is located just next to Friendship Hotel. It is above the KFC Restaurant.
The above photo shows the Gongbei Border (between Zhuhai/Macau).  The right hand corner is the stairs to the underground mall which could lead to the Gongbei Border/immigration.
This is our hotel room, a very small hotel and the location is good cause it is just opposite the Gongbei Border where we could easily walked over to Macau. But regret to say we did not get the high floor so it was quite noisy as the bus station (buses that goes to other parts of China) was located next to the hotel. Glad we were staying only for one night.

From our hotel room window, we could view the Gongbei Border.

Dong Ho, you are right but always can take a cab but sometimes worried if the cab driver is honest or not might charge a high fare.
