An interesting thing I noticed when we were there was how they still use Portugese on buses and road signs.
Here are some pictures from our day trip to Macau. Enjoy!
Before we boarded the boat to Macau, we went for a walk near the ferry station and found some cute places like the Western market and a city park.
|this was in Western market in HK.|
|chinese love their shark fins|
|on our way to the park. we had to go up the stairs to get there and we found someone's "room" underneath the stairs. I was surprised to see this in HK.|
|the cute park|
|We wanted to take a picture here because we thought this place looked familiar (might be in one of those HK dramas we watched).|
We were greeted by seas of people in MACAU
|After an hour of boat ride we're here in Macau! This was one of the street that led up to the ruins of St.Paul's Cathedral.|
|Ruins of St.Paul's Cathedral. You can read more about the historical site here|
|Overlooking Macau city|
|Mount Fortress, or Fortaleza do Monte in Portugese, a fort near the ruins St.Paul's cathedral. There were many cannons like this on the fort.|
|Coming down from the ruins, you can visit the Senado square where there are many shops and restaurants. To be honest though, who would still be in the mood to shop when there are literally thousands of people squeezing past you the whole time?|
Bye bye, Macau.
