For my last day of my big trip I made the 1 hour fast ferry
trip from Hong Kong. Macau
is a former Portuguese colony and has a large number of colonial period
buildings that tourists flock to see. Its also the Las Vegas of Asia with many
large themed resort hotels similar to Vegas. When I arrived in Macau I spent about an hour queuing at Immigration
which was annoying as I only had 7 hours to see the place.
I found Macau less tourist friendly than Hong Kong,
it was a difficult place to walk around due to the lack of signage. I
must have got lost so many times which was frustrating. Macau is very different
to Hong Kong there are a lot less tall buildings and has this interesting
mixture of old Mediterranean and rather shabby looking new buildings. Its
certainly worth a visit and there seems to be a lot of more tourists from
there than westerners which makes you feel like you are visiting somewhere a
After rushing back to the ferry port it was back to Hong Kong to pack my bag for
the final time and get some rest before my early morning flight back to London.
