Day 4 of 8

02.21.2011 – We traveled to Macau around 3pm for almost an hour via TurboJET ferry. We reach Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal at exactly 4pm, cleared immigration and get our luggage right away. It’s kind of relief knowing that we don’t need to worry for port transfer as we were picked up by the hotel’s free shuttle, which is actually complimentary by Hotel Beverly Plaza. We chose this hotel for its room size and its location, it’s a 12 minutes walk to Senado Square and so it’s given that there’s plenty of restaurant and shops nearby. Unfortunately, I can’t find any photo of the hotel except for some that are posted here, so I really can’t do hotel review for that matter. But to sum it up, the hotel were great with complimentary breakfast on top of the free shuttle that will take you to Macau’s famous point of interest. We were really tired touring HK and so after checking-in we didn’t leave the comfort of the hotel, stayed to play some cards, bond with the family and drink the night away.

 Day 5 of 8

02.22.2011 – After breakfast, the whole family except for me and my husband (as I need to finish some work), headed straight to the Venetian through the hotel’s free shuttle. They went there to roam and wander the popular hotel and its whole entertainment complex. We followed them after lunch, explored the Venetian as we wait for my mom who has a thing for casino. After, we took a taxi back to Senado square and walked our way to St. Paul Ruins.

This is our second time in St. Paul Ruins.  Stands adjacent to the famous Mount Fortress and Macau Museum. The front facade and the grand stone stairs are the only remnants of the greatest church which was build in 1580 and was burned downed in the year 1835.

After some snaps at St Paul Ruins, we then take a stroll along Senado Square, enjoyed Macau famous Lord Stow delectable and addicting egg tarts. We also bought some dried jerky meats made out of beef and pork which is very popular in HK and Macau. We had a little shopping as we found a number of quaint shops here. Soon after, we just walk towards our hotel and spend the night away drinking local beers whilst playing cards again.

 Day of 8

02.23.2011 – For this day, we decided not to go anywhere else but to rest and stay in the hotel. Around 11 in the morning, we checked out fast and easy and proceed to Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal via the same shuttle to catch the ferry back to HK. Same with inbound, we purchase our ticket on the spot at the port and leave Macau around 12:30pm. We arrived in HK around 1:30 and carry on with our next stop—Noah’s Ark— which I will have a separate entry after this. As always, happy reading and traveling! See you on my next post. 🙂

The world awaits, travel now
