The Glitzy Macau

Posted on at

Macau has been one of those places that I have loved visiting. A small dot on the world Map in China it has so much fun to offer. Close to Hongkong and located in the Macau peninsula, it is one splendid town. On one fine weekend we decided to visit this place we had heard so much about. So, we got up early on a Saturday morning and took the ferry from Hongkong. It too almost an hour to reach the small territory. We checked in at a hotel and set off to explore the beauty and heritage of Macau. There are many museums telling tales of its rich historical background. The best is Museum of Macau which is a must visit. It also highlights the culture of the people here. Another interseting museum which is one of its kind is the Wine Museum, portraying the process of making wine and its history. The most happening place in Macau is however the Senado Square. It has those colonial cobbled paving having a Portuguese influence. It has many cafés around and my favourite , yes the markets. I indulged in some shopping and found very reasonable deals from the factory outlets here. From here we headed on the famous Macau trail which is a UNESCO world heritage trail. On the trail there are some very interesting sightseeing to be done. So, get your cameras ready for the Rua da Felicidade, St. Lawrence Church, St. Augustine's Square, Lilau Square and many more. After this historic walk its time for a hearty lunch. There are a wide range of options to chose from. We went in to a Thai retaurant there and were very happy with the service. At night Macau dazzles in lights with the casinos operating in full swing. For a moment I thought I was in Vegas.
