Itinerary for day 2 was to go around Macau. We planned to join group tours but then a friend of my brother advised not to 'coz its cheaper if we go there by ourselves.
Ate a hearty breakfast in Metropark Hotel's Palm Court resto.
Palm Court serves almost the same array of food everyday. Not complaining though, mas ok na yung busog kesa gutom. :lol: After breakfast, we went to Tsimshatsui to look for the Hong Kong-China Terminal.
We kinda got lost on our way to the terminal. :| Basta from Harbour City in Canton Road, go straight lang until you reach the HK-CN Terminal (left side).
Took us about an hour to get to Macau.
So upon arrival:
Boom! We're like stuck there for almost an hour. Siksikan! 500-1000 visitors siguro yan.
Once you're done with the immigration, lots of buses are found outside the terminal. They're free shuttles provided by hotels/casinos so no need to take a cab.
We took the shuttle that would bring us to The Venetian.
I had no idea that the skies were fake. :lol:
Turista Shot No. 1 Pagbigyan niyo na, its my first time in Macau. ;)
We had late lunch in the food court. They use Macau money here, good thing they accept HKD.
Turista Shot No. 5 Love the interiors of The Venetian. Ang drama. :)
Couple Turista Shot No. 2
We wanted to check out the casino. Malay mo manalo! Kaso sayang, nahalata nila na Isha's a minor. BOOO. So yeah, no casino for the adults. :( We walked around Macau na lang to check out other hotels and stores. Macau is basically a haven for casino players. Wala kang mabibili dito, unless manalo ka sa casino. :lol: Mostly high end brands lang kasi meron.
After hotel hopping, our next stop was the Ruins of St. Paul. Going there reminds me so much of Quiapo. I don't know, parang ganun din ang vibe pero siyempre safer and cleaner. ;)
Turista Shot No. 6 Buti pa photo niyo maganda and malinaw. Kudos to the photog.. ehem ehem!
We did more hotel hopping after Ruins of St. Paul. A lot of hotels here also offer free viewing of shows. Meron sa Wynn, Mandarin, MGM, etc. Now I know why you don't need to join group tours. Buti na lang mabait yung friends ng kuya ko at nagbigay sila time para i-tour kami around Macau. ;)
Turista Shot No. 7 Taken at the Grand Lisboa
After non-stop walking for like almost 5 hours, we met up with another friend and went straight to A Lorcha. A Lorcha is said to be one of the best Portuguese restaurant in Macau.
Here's our group photo. :) Thanks to newly weds Sheena (girl in the farthest left) and Gabe (guy on my bro's right) for being a gracious host to our family. Food was superb! Can't wait to blog about it. ;) Thanks also to Olivia (girl sitting across Sheena) for coming with us, we had fun!
