After a long flight and a ferry ride, we were entering a pompous town, where everything is weaved in gold and is razzmatazz.
As soon as we checked in, lunch was served in the room. Authentic Chinese is so much better in the hotels than the local restaurants. We ate as the ferries passed by the bridge, relaxing in our massive suite.
And almost immediately fell asleep only to get up in time for a trip down to Senado square.
Flocks of tourists gather here around evening.
Sasa, a beauty haul store caught our attention. It is perhaps the most popular in Macau.
Laden with mini perfume bottles from extravagant brands like Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci that smell celestial. We picked a few for girls back home.
Senado square is a complete old world charm with cobbled streets and charming signboards.
A very Portuguese style intact in Macanese culture.
Macau is often associated with glamour since the casinos first entered ten years back.
But before that was a world of Portuguese trade, terrific architecture and traditional bakeries.
Happy with our lunch, we decided to walk into a Chinese restaurant again and fiddled with chopsticks. Soup noodles were garnished with greens and minchi.
But eventually gave up and gobbled up McDonalds.
The walk back to the hotel was fun and glitzy. But our tiring day tempted us to stuff ourselves into the beds.
Casinos could wait.
