A Day Trip from Hong Kong to Macau by Gisella


A visit to Hong Kong will be complete with a short excursion to Macau, once the oldest European settlement in the Orient. Just by an hour ferry from Hong Kong, in Macau we could enjoyed different atmosphere of China. Its China orient culture blend with European Portuguese culture offer unique charm to every visitor who comes.

A visit to Macau could not be perfect without a visit to St. Ruins Paul, one of the World Heritage Sites in town. As the famous landmark of Macau, St. Ruins Paul is still impressive and inspiring despite this destruction. Admire the still-remarkable details, including intricate 16th-century stone carvings and sculptures.

More than that, we also did visit Macau Tower where we could enjoy stunning views of the Pearl River Delta from its main observation lounge at 731 feet from the ground. There has an observation deck which houses a restaurant, theaters, shopping malls and the Skywalk X, a thrilling walking tour around the outer rim. Saw Macau panoramic views from that observation deck was my priceless experience. In additional, the Tower houses the world highest bungee jump, adventure sky jump, sky walk, and tower climb. From a platform 233m above the ground, visitors could experience the ultimate free fall experience before slowing down 30 meters from the ground. I was so excited and want to challenge all of that activities especially the bungee jump. But because of our time was limited, so very unfortunate my wish did not come true.
