(CGTN) World's longest sea-crossing bridge that connects three major cities in China's Pearl River Delta area, namely Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao, finally opened to public late October.

The 55-kilometer long bridge is a key element for China's plan to build a well-connected and more competitive Greater Bay Area, which encompasses 11 cities including Hong Kong and Macao, that are home to a combined total of 68 million residents.

With the driving time shorten to 45 minutes from three hours, tourists can take a big advantage of the bridge.

CGTN provides you a full picture of shortcuts to get around these three cities in your most condensed time.

For people who want to indulge themselves in fairy tales, I can't think of a better choice than Hong Kong Disneyland. The theme park consists of seven parts: Adventureland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, Toy Story Land, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and Main Street. Among them, Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point are only available in Hong Kong Disneyland.

Here, you are able to bond with your favorite cartoon characters, just like a daydream where you can recall your childhood and cast away your worries as an adult.

With a population of 32,000 per square kilometer, Hong Kong has long been regarded as one of the most densely-populated cities in the world. Among all the intensive high-rise buildings, a neighborhood stands out and earns itself the name of “Monster Mansion.”

Located in Quarry Bay, “Monster Mansion” comprises of five highly-dense, cloud-kissing residence buildings which forms a large “E” zone. The density here can almost give you a sensation of asphyxia. This landmark used to appear in the movie “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” and later became a cool spot to take photos among youngsters.

This is also a place to experience the extreme stress of living in a fast-paced metropolis where tons of people settle.

With a history of more than 350 years, Ruins of St. Paul is the most treasured icon of Macao.

The church was designed by an Italian Jesuit and completed by early Japanese Christian exiles and Chinese craftsmen in 1602.

It was abandoned after the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1762, and a military battalion was stationed here. In 1835 a fire erupted in the kitchen of the barracks, destroying everything, except what you see today. In 2005, it was included in the list of World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

Macao is also the only part of China that gambling is legal, which has 40 casinos now. Among all the dazzling casinos in this “Oriental Las Vegas,” the Venetian Macao is the most visited one. Immersed in a duplicate version of Venice, you can have a sip of a cozy Venetian lifestyle while trying your luck at the gambling table or slot machines. It makes you wonder what time of a day it is once you dive in.

If you want to feel the romantic vibe of Macao, you cannot miss Travessa da Paixão. The alley is around 50-meter long, with bright-colored Portuguese-style buildings scattered on both sides. The unique architectural design and a perfect combination of pink and yellow colors add more artsy vibrancy to this place. This is absolutely a cool spot for taking movie-like pictures.
