8 Hours in Macau

Hello everyone! Last night, I shared how to get to HK-Macau Ferry Terminal. Now, here's the continuation, part II of our Day 3 HK-Macau honeymoon vacation.

Macau is said to be the most popular day trip from Hong Kong simply because Macau is just a few hours away.

Wandering around is the best way to explore the city using free hotel shuttle bus. We had no plans of staying overnight in the City of Dreams, just a day tour. We maximized the use of different hotel shuttle services throughout the 8 hours duration of our Macau trip. Besides, we had to be at Macau-Hong Kong Ferry Terminal (how to go to Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal, click here) by 12:30 am. We're thankful for the free shuttles, we don't have to spend on public transportation.

Venetian Hotel

There's no need to exchange currency in Macau, HK dollars are accepted here in almost all establishments.

I guess the long queuing in Macau-Hong Kong Ferry Terminal has to do with this huge crowd in Venetian Hotel. Albeit many visitors, we had a great time in Macau. I always find joy saying hello, talking and smiling with other nationalities. As a newlywed, we enjoyed each others' company, holding hands hopping from one attraction to another, tasting savory Portuguese egg tarts and looking for great buys. In fact we did not experience any difficulties finding restaurant or where to eat. There's a lot of restaurants, food kiosks that can accommodate thousands of visitors around the world. I'm not talking only about Venetian Hotel

I have no plans to go shopping in Macau so we spent hours and hours strolling and window shopping and yet it's all worth the trip. For us, shopping is just a bonus every time we travel.

Look up and you'll notice the ceiling was painted to resemble like a sky. The canal shops, the gondola, the bridge they were all beautiful!

We spent about two to three hours sightseeing at Venetian then went to another casino.

Macau Fisherman's Wharf

Entrance was free at Macau's Fisherman's Wharf but I don't recommend it since there's nothing much to do although it's also a nice place to walk and take photos. It's very near Sands Hotel.

When in Macau, you must not forget to try Portuguese egg tarts. Not too sweet, these savory egg tarts with their crispy pastry are worth queuing for.

I hope to come back in Macau to discover the historic center of Macau. There's so much to explore. We were not able to include the historical churches, A-Ma Temple, Senado Square, Cathedral, Section of the Old City Walls. I would love to spend another Lunar New Year and Valentine's Day in Macau.

How about you? Have you been to the City of Dream? I would appreciate if you'll leave a comment.
