    1. Hi Robert, basically all the bus go to Taipa ferry terminal first then to the Macau airport side. So you need to walk out the airport to go to the opposite side to take bus, either you can:
      1. walk 10 minutes to the “ROTUNDA DO AEROPORTO / WAI LONG” bus stop opposite to the Macau airport. Take bus no. 26 or MT1 and get off at next stop. It is only one stop away. Bus fare is MOP$4.2 per person, if you have Hong Kong dollars, you can pay HKD$4.2.
      2. Walk on foot to Taipa Ferry terminal for 20 -30 minutes if you happen to have map and mobile data in hand
      3. If time allows, take a hotel shuttle to City of Dream, Galaxy Resort, it is nearby the hotel. Then take the hotel shuttle to the airport. In this way, you can take a look at the hotel, and you will not need to pay the bus fare.
      By all means, if you have lots of luggage, you can take taxi, and ask them to do meter, otherwise they will charge you a great deal as you are a tourist. Hopefully you have mobile data, you can search the route ensure they don’t turn you around to charge you more. If you don’t, pretend you have checking GPS something.
      Hope this information help you.
