If you have read my First glimpse abroad: Hong Kong post, then this would be the sequel. 😀 I’d just like to share more about this sophisticated place which has made me think of visiting it again. As a traveller, I don’t only give praise to how beautiful a place is but I also consider its history, culture, and of course, fooood! History wise, Macau has a lot of stories to tell. I wish we had an ample time to get to know Macau well, but time didn’t permit so. Imagine a 5-hour stay in a place where you know that there are plenty of good places to quench your thirst of learning, exploring, and adventure. How can you make the most out of such limited time? If you ask me, yes we did it! Thanks to my boyfriend’s efficient map. 😀
Took a ferry from Kowloon and got there not more than an hour.
Macau’s port really impressed me. Tourist-friendly if I’d name it. 😀
As soon as we got there, we had to rush out of the port and figure out the nearby places that we could see.
Yeah, that was a little unfortunate of us but it didn’t stop us from roaming around that little portion of Macau. We decided not to take a cab nor the bus. We wanted to see every detail of the place. So we walked and walked until our happy feet took us here….
A building with casino and gold statues.
~ Residential units
They’re everywhere, almost. 😀
Did I already tell you that casinos are almost on every corner here? 😀
~ Oh what’s this place? *shocked face*
We found this place but unfortunately, the whole shop was covered with some kind of paper sheets leaving a part of the door for me to see. Didn’t bother to go check the inside. Kind of embarrassing! LOL
~ Tulip Square
One of the tourist spots here. Don’t get surprised when you read some Portuguese here. Even the districts and streets are named in Portuguese.
~ Macau Fisherman’s Wharf
Such a wide locale!
~ Macau Museum of Art
Broad and clean! However, it was still under renovation. Hmm~ this calls for a second visit, maybe? 😀
Had our lunch at a nearby restaurant. It was a little expensive for a local restaurant but the food left us saying “Oh my! So delicious!” again and again. 😀
After that sumptuous late lunch for two, we got back to our feet and continued walking a little more. This unique structure caught our attention. Sorry, I can’t tell whether it’s a mall or a sightseeing spot. 😀
Guess what this building tried to replicate!
As we noticed that our time in Macau was coming to an end, we headed our way back to the port. But wait~ we managed to stop by a cafe and tried this Hong Kong Iced Tea. ^_^
Time to go back to HK~
It was just a 5-hour excursion, yet I really had the best time of my life there. 🙂
