A day trip to Macau experience has been nothing short of amazing. It’s a bustling city where there’re many huge hotels and casinos with never-ending crowds coming from all over the world. This was my first time being there and I have to say I had numerous jaw-dropping moments as I ride on those shuttle buses and travel across the whole Macau. We took an hour Turbojet to be welcomed by many different hotels representatives that offers shuttle bus services to different parts of Macau (choose wisely).
Our purpose for this trip was not just to gamble but also to visit the touristy- Ruins of St. Paul’s. As theboy is more familiar with Galaxy Hotel, hence we took the shuttle bus to and from Galaxy Hotel and made our way to St. Pauls, no doubt we did lost our way (as usual) but nevertheless, we made it there.
I’m not exaggerating, the hotels there is at least 2-3 times of Singapore’s iconic, Marina Bay Sands (MBS) and it’s less crowded because every different hotels has their own casino. I was overwhelmed by the huge entrance of the hotel and I feel so small. We transit from Galaxy Hotel’s Shuttle Bus “interchange” to another place that brought us nearer to the Ruins of St Paul’s, just feel free to ask the staff for assistance and they are more friendly also. Sorry I forgot how to go because I was too absorbed by the surrounding and theboy have been my direction and tour guide.. heh.
So it was like “show-time” for theboy to show me how familiar he’s in Macau. He told me that the Bagua and Pork Bun is the most famous local delights of Macau and introduced to me the famous local pastries shop where many people would shop for Almond cookies. Before we joined in the shopping, we head over to the Ruins of St Paul’s first. It’s a distance from the alighting point of shuttle bus but fret not, there’s always signs and Google map to help you out. The weather was so good that day!
After conquering the Ruins of St Paul’s, we did some shopping along the street and tried out their local delights such as Bagua and Pork Bun. We bought 1kg of what that’s known as “Thick Wild Boar“, the meat is thick but tender! *drooling* The Bun on the other hand was not amazing because apparently the one I went to isn’t the famous one. Anyway, it’s a new experience for me, heh.
I was alittle sad upon leaving Macau back to Hong Kong, I wanted to stay there. In near future, I want to bring my parents along next time to show them that Singapore’s MBS is nothing compare to anything in Macau, heh. I hope you like this post and get the chance to visit Macau soon! I’ll be updated on the rest of my trip on Friday, stay tune alright?
