Macau, Hong Kong: 8 reviews and 10 photos


If you have the time, plan a day trip to Macau. Once a Portuguese colony, it was recently given back to China. The hydrofoil ride takes about 1 hour from Central. You can book a tour from Hong Kong or once there, take a taxi to the ruins of Sao Paul (St Paul's Church). From there you can wander around the streets and wonderful shops that Macau has to offer. Prices are very good compared to Hong Kong. They will even ship furniture for you.
The architecture has a definite Portuguese influence. Make sure you book a return time for your ferry as many locals go to Macau for gambling at the casino. If you can, book a first class ticket, not only is this a more comfortable ride 'upstairs' but you also get a free ice cream both ways. There are day tours to Macau from Hong Kong.
