The Macau Jet Foil

The greater Hong Kong area seems to be all about transportation. Ferries, cable cars, double-decker buses. Well, add to the list the jet foil from Kowloon to Macau. Clocking in at about one hour, this high-speed ride takes passengers down the coast of the South China Sea, with ocean spray shooting along the side windows the whole way.

As an added bonus, a day trip to Macau gets you four stamps in your passport, as the two provinces are governed under "One Country, Two Systems." With all of the traveling we have done, it had been completely on the mainland before arriving in Hong Kong, so the kids (not to mention this adult!) were excited by the new additions to our passports.
