2 Days in Macau

Posted in Travel by avisoo on January 28, 2010

Macau is populated city. It has many bar, many restaurants, many casinos and many problems. After arrived at Macau International Airport, I take a taxi to Senado Square. Senado Square, is a paved area in the centre of the former Portuguese Colony of Macau, enclosed by the buildings of the Leal Senado, the General Post Office, and St. Dominic’s Church. You can see architectural and technological influences from East and West at Senado Square.

I stayed near Senado Square, the hotel name is San Va Hospedaria, located on Rue Da Felicidade 67 (5 mins walk from Senado Square).

This hotel has in use for shooting some scenes from Indiana Jones. The walls from rattan, iron beds and wood from old-fashioned era. It costs 70 Macau Patacas (US $10) for 1 night.

Get a tourist map at Macau Tourist Centre (Senado Square) for free. A-Ma Temple, Guia Fort and Ruins of St Paul’s is my recommendation to visit, but it’s a lot of heritage sites in Macau and you can reach it by bus.

Macau has displayed an atmosphere which made it different from the surroundig areas. Today it is still this mixture of the Chinese and Portuguese cultures harmoniously maintained by its people that makes this place a specific cultural entity.

I love scooters; whatever gas scooter, electric scooter or electric bike. Scooter have an exotic body.. At Macau, you can find a lot of scooter with  various brands, like Honda, Piaggio, and Kymco. The preferred mode of transportation in Macau is by scooter and they are everywhere in the whole island.

At the side road, i saw an old man fixing his scooter machine and his couple accompany him. Perfecto.

You didn’t find the scooter? The scooter found you!
