A Day in Macau

Friday, September 23, 2016

Since Macau is just an hour boat ride from Hong Kong, I decided to visit Macau for a day. Another event in which I was nervous and at the same time excited. Nervous 'cause I wasn't able to familiarize the routes of the places where I was going to visit, and excited 'cause it's my first time to be there! What I like about Macau is the fusion of two cultures, Portuguese and Chinese. That's one of the reasons why I decided to go there.
And of course, it's near Hong Kong!
Believe it or not, I didn't spend a single cent on my transportation upon arriving there. Yes, you heard that right. As what I have read on other blogs, you can basically go around Macau by just riding Hotel buses. Since I was only there for a day, I didn't bother buying a local sim card too. Good thing that I didn't buy one, you can connect to wifi's at any hotels in Macau!

Here are the places that I visited in Macau for a day

1. Hotels & Casinos Hopping
Known as the "Vegas of Asia", you must visit atleast one hotel/casino in Macau. To do this, you can just hop in at any bus from the ferry, and almost every hotel is linked. So no need to worry about the transportation.
Casino Lisboa
Galaxy Hotel
Inside Venetian Hotel
Among all of the hotels that I visited, the Venetian is my favorite. As the name itself is obvious, the hotel is inspired by the place, Venice. Which hopefully, I get to visit it one day. It was also here in the hotel where I got to try out the famous Lord's egg tarts!

2. Taipa Village
From Venetian, I just walked to this place. It took about 15 minutes for me to get there. I have to say, I really enjoyed this place. From the old cobblestoned streets, to the preserved old buildings, this historical village will be one of my favorite places to go.
3. Fisherman's Wharf
Wandering around the theme park feels like you're in a movie set... an old one that probably came from the 50's! The architecture in the theme park was heavily cultured. The place was so animated, you'll love it!

4. Senado Square
Located at the central area of Macau, Senado Square is considered the urban center for centuries. Probably the busiest and crowded part of Macau. From the western architecture, to the atmosphere, Senado Square is a great place to walk around and take pictures.

5. Ruins of St. Paul
One of the UNESCO World Heritage site, Ruins of St. Paul is no doubt one of the famous sites to visit in Macau.
Along the way to the Ruins, you'll pass by an alley where you can get a free taste of their jerky and some of their delicacies!

There's more to Macau for being known as Asia's gambling Mecca. Macau is rich in culture and an interesting place to visit. Will probably visit Macau again when it's all so sunny and vibrant. :)
