Ruins of St. Paul, Macau
Welcome to Macau! The vegas of asia in my opinion. Went to Macau with my dad for a mini vacation, since we got a bit bored in Hong Kong. Going to chronicle our stay in Macau!
It’s very easy to reach to Macau from Hong Kong. You can catch a ferry at the port at Sheung wan to Macau. To get to this port, just get off at Sheung Wan Station! Bought a ferry ticket, and waited in the Hong Kong Ferry Terminal:
The actual ferry ride lasted about one hour, which is not too bad. Took a nap and woke up in Macau! Proceeded to go to our hotel….
We stayed at a hotel called Starworld Macau. It’s a great hotel to stay in. I am particularly impressed by the washroom set up. In the shower the water literally comes from the ceiling! Maybe I am easily impressed, and other people may have already experienced this but it was my first time so it was a pleasant surprise. Here’s the view from our hotel room:
A must see in Macau. The Senado Square, there are many shops situated here for your shopping lovers. Also a lot of great local Portuguese food (Macau used to be a colony of Portugal). A little further up you will see the infamous Ruin of St.Paul (see first picture). I think you can spend a good 2 – 3 hours here.
For dinner, we went to this restaurant called A Lorcha, which it claims to be authentic Portuguese food. We ordered four dishes, but I only managed to take pictures of two. -p They were all really delicious!
Thats about it for now. I am going to go downstairs to try my luck at Poker! C ya!
