Hong Kong & Macau 4 Day 3 Night Self-Guided Stopover from $1199
Once a sleepy fishing village, Hong Kong has now developed into one of the premiere financial powerhouses of Asia. It is a city which boldly blends the modern with Chinese heritage and British colonial influence. A safe, well organised, fast paced shopping paradise, it also offers up some unmatched cuisine experiences. Dine on some of the best yum cha and wonton noodle soup in the world, or a taste of more unusual culinary delights such grass jelly or shredded jellyfish.
Macau is a small peninsula in mainland China, across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong. A Portuguese overseas territory until 1999, it reflects a mix of Portuguese and Chinese influences. Its giant casinos and extravagant malls have earned it the nickname, the ‘Las Vegas of Asia’.

Testimonials Optional Extension
I am writing to commend you on an excellent tour. My husband and I, in our sixties, have just returned from a 22 day Grand Tour of China and at all stages we found the trip to be well organised and enjoyable. Your selection of hotels and restaurants was always of a very high standard. The itinerary was also busy and varied, and at all times we felt safe and comfortable.
Our tour guide Jackie Cheung was exceptional. He kept us informed and entertained and we all developed a friendly relationship with him that made our experience all the more enjoyable. Many times Jackie exceeded his role to give each of the people in his care the best possible experience, and he was always pleasant, in control and very well organized. Also, the selection of local guides was much appreciated. Their knowledge and bright manner helped make our tour even more interesting and entertaining.
There were many many highlights. However, overall, we have nothing but praise for such a wonderful trip. The planning and organisation was amazing and we will definitely recommend Nexus to future travellers.
