For most tourists, traveling to Hong Kong wouldn't be complete without doing a day trip to Macau. After all, it is just an hour away by ferry, and being a former Portuguese colony, it is always interesting to see the unique blending of two cultures that made this place a special and charming destination that it is today. And so on our last day in Hong Kong, we decided to take a ferry for a day trip to Macau making this little country my 33rd visited one. Buying our tickets from TurboJet was easy, and with fares ranging from 148 to 184 Hong Kong dollars in economy class, I think it was quite a good price.
It was a very nice experience visiting Macau and discovering it's unique culture. I felt like I was taken back to an old European city. For me, seeing the ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral was the highlight of the trip. It was just so fascinating how the facade came to be. The casinos are nice but as I've said, I still prefer the ones in "The Strip".
Discovering Macau could be done in one day, the same way we did our day tour. Or maybe more, specially if you feel like taking your chances in their casinos. To the wonderful people of Macau, Obrigado 😍
