My will to blog often is always in my bucket list but because I have been busy (swear! not making any excuses) and somehow, busy is good, so why complain? Right now, my hands are full of things to share regarding my trips this year.
Last May 7-12 , we traveled overseas again after two years and visited Macau and Hongkong (will be doing a separate blog). It was our first time in both countries so it was all about adventure while getting lost around the city, as expected.
From Macau International airport, we traveled 45 minutes (by bus) to reach our hotel- Macau Masters ( a good budget hotel). We were quiet drained since we took a last flight from Davao- Manila ( May 6) and stayed in the airport to catch up an early flight from Manila- Macau (May 7). After we rested for an hour or two in our hotel, we were very ecstatic to explore Macau.
As we toured around Macau, we were mesmerized by the architectural designs of their hotels and casinos. We visited Macau not to gamble of course, it was more of sightseeing since we got curious with the cultural heritage of the place.
The city isn’t that big, in fact, you can explore the place in just a day. Here’s the list of places we visited based on our point of interests.
1.Grand Hotels and Casinos
2.Ruins of St. Paul
3. Senado Square
5. St. Dominic’s Church
6.Golden Lotus Square
Overall, our first trip to Macau is something that we won’t forget and definitely, we will be going back and maybe, just maybe we will try to gamble. 🙂
- Explore the city for free by riding shuttle buses of the following hotels The Venetian, City of Dreams, Wynn Macau, Sands Macau, Galaxy Macau and more that roamed around the city all day long . If you are going to ride public buses, you really have to pay or else you will be reprimanded by the drivers. You can also purchase Macau Pass here if you plan to stay longer and travel frequently for a lesser fare.
- In case of getting lost, taxis are available but make it sure that you will show the address in their local language because they find it hard to communicate in English.
- Language spoken: Cantonese & Portuguese
- Don’t forget to try the famous ” egg tart“.
Stay tuned on my next travel blog. Thank you for dropping by.
