A few days in Macau

Traveling in China

Here a serie of photos from the past, called Blast From The Past. Macau a formerly Portuguese colony, now a part of China and famous for its Casino's. For more information see Wikipedia - Macau. While living in Thailand I had to make the so called visa-runs. Now you can take a mini-van to the border, go 5min to Cambodia or Laos and come back again. But after doing that a few times I did choose to see more. So I looked for cheap flights to nearby countries. That is how I did go first to Macau and later to Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Following are more photos I took when staying a few days in Macau and even made a side-trip to Hong Kong with the ferry. So in 2007 I did stay in a hotel in down-town Macau, easy to go everywhere. It was a cheap hotel and I found out later it was probably also used as short-time hotel as the lobby was always filled with pretty Chinese girls. So I did visit Ruins of St. Paul Church, walked over Senado Square, walked along the main strip of Casino's, saw Macau Tower and made a day trip by public bus to the islands Taipa and Coloane. And as Macau is just next door Hong Kong I took the ferry to Hong Kong for a day trip.
