Finding cheap flights to Macau

As mentioned above, if you plan to fly directly into Macau you’ll have to come via a major Asian hub. And it can easily be Hong Kong, but for the last part of the journey, take the ferry to Macau (hence, saving some money, too).

The best time to visit Macau is in autumn, between October and December. Needless to say, everybody plans to visit the area at about the same time so plan in advance . Ideally, book the ticket 4 to 8 weeks before departure. Try to avoid flying over the weekends. Mid-week flights are cheaper.
