Macau – Macao: I haven’t had enough of you.

Macao - Macau travel one day tour

Macau (in modern Portuguese) or Macao (original Portuguese spelling) is one of the two special administrative regions of the People's Republic of China, along with Hong Kong.

Macau is located less than two hours of ferry trip from ports of Hong Kong, making it a famous side trip destination after HK visit.

Like many does, on our visit to Hong Kong we decided to spend the last day in Macau. From what I really knew, at first a day is enough to tour the City yet I haven’t had enough of in that short trip. Maybe because I am not fond of all the casino scenery and I failed to stay up to night time where the lights of the buildings is a must witness show. But if I would be asked if I would like to go back again then I would say yes, perhaps on a two-day trip. I wanted to visit the bear sanctuary, the old villages (which are great since we manage to pass by a few), the street food, and the black coast at the far end of the island; which are far from the center and would require a little time.

Hong Kong Day 2 - The Giant Buddha and Ngong Ping 360 Crystal Cable.

Hongkong - Macau travel itinerary-5257

On our second day in Hong Kong our first struggles were about food, we are craving for a rice meal breakfast and yet we can’t find a single store selling one. I woke up at 4:30am (which is really ridiculous for such bed-y weather) and roamed around for breakfast and was really happy to catch a McDonald’s store open 24/7. But the store doesn’t have any rice meals which we think we need most for the entire day, so I had a bowl of soup instead which is already good for me but not for my other two companions.

We rode a bus to North of Lantau as we originally planned because we want to experience the trip and the view going there and were not interested of taking the cable car back and forth. The trip was quite far, it took us about two hours, the road and the view was a treat and the price is cheaper which makes it a very good choice.

Hong Kong - Macau : Day 1 and Prior

Hongkong - Macau travel itinerary-5183

Sorry this month is our quarter end – we cannot approve your vacation leaves.

An appalling message I got three weeks before our flight. I was the brain of this trip so I’m worried about how I could make them proceed without me.

Then followed a long story of negations and waiting - fingers crossed. Finally they give up before me. #happykid


Two weeks later: 2am we left home and were at the Clark-Trinoma lounge by 2:30. The bus Left at exactly three and we were already at the airport by 4:35.
