Here’s a long overdue post (2 months delayed to be exact), which was the third part of my summer vacation.
For the last day, we went to Macau via Cotai Water Jet. I dread riding turbojets, boats and the likes just for some unknown reasons. I prefer airplanes because I personally think they’re safer. But riding Cotai Water Jet was an amazing experience since I was not really doubtful of their turbojet and I was not feeling nauseated. Nice!
I love the fact that Hong Kong and Macau’s ferries are open 24 hours and one ferry departs every 15 minutes. So convenient!
After an hour, we arrived in Macau and was greeted by our tour guide who was actually very fluent in English.
Photos of buildings I took inside our tour bus.
We arrived at Fisherman’s Wharf, which was actually the very first theme park in Macau.
We had our free buffet lunch at this lovely restaurant inside Fisherman’s Wharf.
Vintage jukebox radio. Love!
Some more interesting designs inside Fisherman’s Wharf
My sisters and I inside a store I forgot the name of.
The Kun Iam statue, the Goddess of Mercy
Went inside Macau Tower Convention and Entertainment Centre and found this stall of Macau goodies.
Cute feng shui bracelets and my sisters & I got one for ourselves.
The world’s highest bungee is found here in Macau Tower with a height of 764 ft. When we were there, someone was bungee jumping. Crazily awesome! I would want to bungee jump someday, before I die. It’s one of my bucket lists!
Afterwards, we went to A-ma Temple, which was built in 148. The said temple is dedicated to Matsu, the goddess of seafarers and fishermen.
Prayer cards inside A-ma Temple which were surrounding a tree.
The Ruins of St. Paul, Monte Fort in Macau. Amazing baroque facade.
Finally a decent and complete photo of us four! So kind of a woman (who was actually Bisaya) to take a photo of us against the Ruins of St. Paul. She was on tour together with us and I didn’t know she was a Filipino, let alone a Visayan since she looked foreign (she’s half German). It was until I said to my sister out loud “Hoi kakapoy ba” while we were walking that she laughed and we were shocked that she understood what I was saying. Such a small world!
The last stop for our Macau itinerary was: The Venetian!
Beautiful architecture (especially with the fake sky mural which fooled my sister who thought it was real) + legitimate branded shops inside The Venetian.
I wanted to ride the gondola. Too bad our time was super duper limited. Either way, it was fun just to be inside the beautiful Venetian.
So that’s the end of my 3 separate travel posts (1st part you can find here, and the 2nd one here) along Hong Kong and Macau.
On another note, Happy Independence Day, Philippines!
