2007 July: Hong Kong: Day 2: Macau Excursion

2007 July: Hong Kong: Day 2: Macau Excursion


This time, we join the guided tour handled by Grayline Tours for our Full Day Macau Excursion (http://www.macautourism.gov.mo/en/index.php).

A Grayline coach will pick up the guests in their respective hotels and will be guided to transfer to Macau Ferry Terminal to take a Turbo Jet for the departure to Macau.



First stop is to take photos of Statue of Kun Lam.




Then we visited Museum of Macau (

Ruins of St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church - This Church was built in 1602 and burned by fire in 1835. Miraculously, fine art of carvings and statues can be seen on the surviving facade.




Casinos in Macau.

Then we had a short walk on the Europe-like Street in Macau.

Look that I’m standing on a clear glass floor, over looking the cars on the roads below.
