Macau 2014 (Places)_ part 1 澳門自由行

I have been wanted to visit Macau, soon I gotten quite a low air fares during the school holidays, I immediately booked this last minutes trip. Later I realized that the hotel room rates in Macau were quite high. Since our main purpose were not going to their famous casino, so we have plenty of time to visit other places, this is so called free and easy trip, no rush and be relax ^_^.

The Ruins of St. Paul's (Portuguese: Ruínas de São Paulo, Chinese: 大三巴牌坊), visit Macau sure can't miss this place

In front of Ruins of St.Paul, a street that full of tourists shopping for Macau's famous local cookies and souvenirs.

The weather were so hot, not so nice walk under this hot sunny day..

From the side view..

Love this angle to see Ruins of St.Paul
Fortaleza do Monte 大炮台

One night, we walked to nearby Casino which located not far from the hotel (Hotel Royal Macau ) where we were stayed.

Grand Lisboa (新葡京) 


City view (I captured these photos from hotel's window), love these two pictures ! This is how Macau people living !!

One of the local wet market near the hotel we stayed..

Rice dumplings

The Senado Square, or Senate Square (Portuguese: Largo do Senado; Chinese: 議事亭前地)

Beautiful church, St. Dominic's Church (玫瑰堂)

I went in to have a quick look at this wet market

One of the famous food item in Macau is this salted fish.

I like their kangkung (water morning glory), big and crunchy

 All their roads are small and narrow, this is one the back lane..
and many parts of their road are quite hilly..
To be continued...
