Hong Kong Trip Part 3

Continue from

Happy Birthday to me!! It was my birthday that day. Today, we planned to go to Macau! It was our first time going to Macau. We took the MTR to Sheung Wan then take the ferry from the Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal to Macau. You can also take the ferry from the China Ferry Terminal which is located in Kowloon. Personally, I find the Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal more convenient as it is connected to the Sheung Wan MTR Station. The ferry travel time is about 1 hour.

By the way, you need your passport to go to Macau from Hong Kong so don't leave your passport in the hotel room if you intend to go to Macau from Hong Kong.


 We took the TurboJet.

 It cost HK$151.

 We had our lunch in KFC as we only had about 45 mins to eat.

 On our way.

 Bye Hong Kong!


After we reached Macau, we went opposite the Ferry Terminal to take the shuttle bus to Venetian Casino. There are many different shuttle buses to different casinos in Macau.


 Macau eggtart. Tasted so-so only though. 

 We went to the casino at Venetian to try.

We won HK$4. Haha.  

Our winnings!! But we spent more than this amount. So in the end, we still lost. But I can't remember how much we lost. Not a lot anyway.

 The toilet there is so nice!

 自拍 while waiting for Robin. He went to the toilet.

After playing in the casino for some time, we went shopping!! Haha. But there are mostly branded goods there so.. we didn't buy anything. By the way, you can see the sky from here right? Actually, we are indoor and the 'sky' is just the ceiling.

Had my birthday dinner at Cafe Siam - a Thai restaurant in Venetian. The food there is not bad. I don't like the coconut there though. Find it a bit old and tough.

 Water from the casino. Haha.

 Bought some famous food there. Should have bought more.

Back to Hong Kong. Took the ferry to the China Ferry Terminal in Kowloon. Thought that it's better as our hotel is in Kowloon. But we walked quite far from this ferry terminal to Austin MTR.

Tired out.

Regretted not going to other parts of Macau. Will explore around Macau next time. Maybe we can stay in a hotel in Macau for 1 day. Then it will not be so rushed.

@Mia: No lah. I think there are other places to visit like the Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral and the Macau Tower, etc. I didn't go there as I had no time. Maybe next time will stay one night in Macau.

Aw, this was an extremely good post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you should write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people do not talk about such subjects. To the next! All the best!! online Sbobet
