Macau Border Gate Square 'Praça das Portas do Cerco' | November 6, 2009
Back to Mainland and heading for Guangzhou. One Country, Two Systems… two checkpoints! The journey starts with people flocking at Macau‘s Border Gate square and lining up inside the Border Gate building. After passing the frontier checkpoint, a tax free no man’s land, and Zhuhai‘s Gongbei immigration & custom checkpoint one arrives at an underground mall that combines a busy pedestrian walkway, shopping plaza & coach station. Snapshots from a bus ride to Guangzhou.
