It is easy to get around in Hong Kong as a tourist. My favorites are bus and boat.
Boats and ferries are very good, as good as transportation, good to see HK from the waterway.
My absolute favorite is the buses in Hong Kong. Even before
arriving to Hong Kong, you can get acquainted with the bus network on the internet and see what stops looks. Then you get the street address and if you want to go in and look at Google Earth, how it looks around the bus stop.
Taxis are also very good. I stayed for one and going to a hotel. The driver said, "you see the house with a big sign, where the hotel is located., I have to go the long way around to get there. You go almost as fast, nice walk too." Very friendly.

You can take MTR Tsuen Wan Line to the Central, and then change MTR Island Line and get off at Sheung Wan Station. Go out from Exit D and you arrive at the HK-Macau Ferry Terminal. Then you can take a ferry to Macau.

Cheap Hotels in Macau include Galaxy Macau and New Century Hotel, just for you reference.

Dear Gunnarf11,
1. Thanks foa the detailed info.
2. Got the point. On reachig Shenzen North station i should Go to Metro 4, Longhua Line. Ticket: 4 RMB from Shenzhen North to Futian Checkpoint. 9 stations. Time: ca 20 min.
3. As i understand it will take about 30-90 min for crossing formalities.
4. What is not understood is
(a) the meaning of :- Walk to Lok Ma Chau (Futian Port) Hong Kong. Ticket MTR East Railline, Lok Ma Chau to Hung Hom ~33 HKD and 45 min.
(b) From Hung Hom area how far will the disneyland be.
(c) Reply to questions 3-7 asked on 23 Jun if you have an idea.
5. Lastly if you have an idea, if i reverse the trip ie Macau first and HK later so that at the end of day 1 i stay at Macau and spend only 2 days and 1 night at HK, will it work out cheaper. (Basically are the hotel rates cheaper at Macau than HK).
Thanks once again

Excuse my bad English, I just write!
Turning on the trip can be an idee. Go from Guangzhou South to Zhuhai North. Time about 1 hour. Distances 116 km and costs 43 RMB. (Do not know if more lift is ready to Macau yet). The tracks are under construction to Macau. There are several buses from Zhuhai North, but I will Just remember 3A. It goes to a port for hydrofoil go to HK. I recommend going to the Gong Bei in Zhuhai. Close to good hotel built approx 2010, New East Hotel Zhuhai. Price about 180 RMB. Near Border Station. Walk 100 meters and you see the big red building, which is the border station Zhuhai-Macao. In this square is very large underground shopping mall several floors. Escalators. Very big tourist trap, but also ample opportunity to bargain.
When you have passed through border control to Macau are many buses to various places in Macau. I do not know more because I lived in Zhuhai and did not care about the world's largest gambling city, bigger than Las Vegas. In Zhuhai go my wife taxi (she employed) I her needy man, haha, a bus). Many in Macau go over to Macau to stay. Then you have probably multiple-entry in the visa. Macau experienced by mainland residents dearly. Hong Kong is the world's most densely populated city and hotel rooms so small that it would be better they threw out the bed and put two closets which sets klädgaljen in such jacket. Assumes it hangs up themselves and sleeping. I like Hong Kong, but would rather sleep on the other place. (My wife says they sleep a lot better at the Hong Kong Airport's chairs than on the Hong Kong hotel). One can take the hydrofoil from Macau to Hong Kong Airport. From there it isnnot so far from Disneyland. I've never been there. Often, I have about 10nhour flight in the legs and wants to go home soon. Hong Kong Airport is one of the best airports in the world. Everything is there. Think Guang Zhou Also among the top 10, but must be expanded, old in China more than 10 years. For

Which area will train arrive in HK? or will bus be better and how to get the bus including bus numbers?
2. I intend to visit Disneyland for one day and city tour the next day? On arrival from Guangzhou/Shenjen by train which would be an ideal place/area to stay in Hongkong to cover these areas? Moderate budget? Are 1 year old children allowed inside Disneyland?

From Guangzhou South to Shenzhen North Station with G-train. About 36 min, CNY 74,5.
When I came to Shenzhen North Station, I went to the Metro and bought the ticket at the vending machine. Cost only 4 RMB. (I had been recommended to take a taxi at a cost of approximately 60-70 RMB). Taking the Metro very interesting. It was crowded and I was left, which was a good fit for the journey sitting. There were nine stops at the border post, where I wouldbreak. Then walk to the border screening and passport control. It went pretty quickly and so I was back in Hong Kong and Look Ma Shau.
From Look Ma Shau MTR to Hung Hom, (Kowloon and Hong Kong Railway station) ~33 HKD and time 45 min.
Shenzhen Bei
Go to Metro 4, Longhua Line. Ticket: 4 RMB from Shenzhen North to Futian Checkpoint. 9 stations. Time: ca 20 min.
Short Walk to Checkpoint China/Hong Kong. Time for Inspection: ca 30-90 minute. Walk to Lok Ma Chau (Futian Port) Hong Kong. Ticket MTR East Railline, Lok Ma Chau to Hung Hom ~33 HKD and 45 min.
Around Hung Hom are many hotels, Maybe you can get advice from people with better local knowledge.
