April 9, 2016 – Saturday
We were told that we couldn’t explore Macau on one whole day so we woke up early hoping we could at least explore half of it. We left the hostel at exactly 7am
Hongkong Macau Ferry Terminal is located in a mall called Shun Tak Centre, just a walking distance from our hostel 🙂
It took us an hour to reach Macau
After immigration, there were a lot of Pinoys (and locals) who offers whole day tour. Of course, we bargained for the cheapest tour possible and in the end, we agreed to go on tour with Kuya Eric for 200hkd including Macau tower entrance.
Our first stop was Wynn Hotel where they have this light show with their giant ceiling.
We went to Emperor Palace too! (not sure if this is the correct photo though)
And the famous The Venetian
Guess what? one of the singers in the gondola ride is a Filipina. Good job for ate!
And of course, we couldn’t miss the City of Dreams! (we also have this in Manila!)
And Asia’s highest bungee jump
I lost track of the names of the casinos that we went to before visiting this famous Ruins of St. Paul. (we walked through this street full of Macau delicacies and got our tummies full with free tastes! )
We didn’t miss to visit one of their souvenir shops!
After the tiring adventure in Macau, we went straight to Victoria Peak, one of the famous landmarks in Hongkong. Alight from Central station of MTR, you need to walk 300m on the way to The Peak tram terminus. The two way tram ticket costs HK$40.00 (the peak tower prices click here)
At this point, you need to buy ticket to the Sky Terraces 428. the highest point in Hongkong where you can have a breathtaking 360 degrees view of Hongkong. Too bad it was foggy that night that we decided to visit the following day. Nagtyaga na lang kami sa pagpapicture sa labas kahit ma fog. Sayang ang $40 eh 😛
We arrived in the hostel past 12 midnight! super tired but super sulit ang tour!
