Our hotel was absolutely beautiful. It is one of the older ones,with the area's first casino (or one of them...can't remember right now..). It had a lot of up and down reviews about it online. Most of the negative ones were about who outdated it was though. I didn't care. I wanted to stay here. And I am glad we did. There were several entrances into the hotel. Here are some shots of different ones. This is the Hotel Lisboa.
After we dropped our bags off, we began to explore. The city is very mixed with old relics and new architecture. And while lots of cities have this, it's very obvious here. In one shot, you see the canon used to fight off invaders, with a brand new pineapple-looking casino in the background. There are two parts to Macau. There is the main area (peninsula) and another smaller island. We only made it around the first part. It is small enough to get around very easily though on public bus.
I enjoyed my few days in Macau. There are things we didn't get to see, but it is easy enough to get to. We can take the ferry to Macau from where I live in Shekou. It is about an hour. Some day, I may go back. I will wait until the rainy season has passed, so I can see more of the city.
