I plan to travel from Zhuhai to Macau on 24 Dec 11 morning, it is Christmas Eve and also Saturday, I am worry it will be very crowded at Gongbei Custom.
Should I cross the border as early as possible ie 7:30am to 8:ooam to avoid the big crowd or it will be the same no matter what time I go to the Custom. Normally how long will it take in the Gongbei Custom clearance ?
Christmas Eve is just another day. On a Saturday it will be crowded but not any more than usual. I would allow an hour but who knows so far in advance what may happen with world events that may affect it. You have plenty of time to plan so look at taking the ferry from Wanchai (the one in Zhuhai not the one in HK!) to Macau. I have never done it by the way but have heard of others who have. It would help if you speak Chinese though.
