i was smitten with macau, i think the place deserves a separate blog post.
we arrived from hongkong to macau by turbojet ferry. it took about 1 hour.
indonesians don’t need visa to get to hongkong or macau. i think most nationality don’t need visa either.
to get to the old town, take bus no 3A from the ferry terminal. check the direction before get on to the bus.
to get to the venetian, just simply hop on their free shuttle bus. you can find them in ferry terminal.
macau is small. one day is enough to explore it all.
macau has 2 faces:
- the lovely old town, with antique mosaic tiles and colorful flowers
- the bombastic casino area with ultra modern buildings. they’re mostly on taipa island.
everything in macau is cheaper compared to hongkong
don’t leave macau before taste the famous egg tart
it’s harder to find people who can speak english in macau compared to hongkong
besides senado square, the other must visit is the ruin of st. paul cathedral. it’s one of the UNESCO heritage.
i love seeing things in portuguese. i found the language is exotic.
when walking exploring macau, we were lost. but ended up in a beautiful area near bibliotheque de s. jose.
