City of Dreams: Macau.


Takin' it back a year. Macau is a magical place; a Disneyland for grown-ups almost. If you're into gambling and whatnot. A ferry trip away and you'll be ushered out into a myriad of dreamy and plush hotels with its casinos and high end restaurants/ retailers. I won't pretend I'm an expert at Macau but it's definitely a place worth visiting for picturesque moments and a nice break from the Hong Kong lifestyle, even if gambling's not your scene. I won't pretend I know how to do any of that. In fact, I'd be pretty awful at it all.

Not sure if it was beginner's luck or what but I definitely came out of that casino $59 richer. I'll put it on beginner's luck. Moving on, I don't have many pictures to hand but we ventured out into the urban town centre, which is a nice contrast from the gambling hub of Macau. It's much more traditional and represents the architectural legacies of the city pretty well. Cobbled pavings, monuments and plentiful of top delicacies such as beef jerky and Portuguese tarts. Always say yes to the po tart! One  of my best university friends, Cristina is from Macau and it's really surreal to visit her home-town and experience the different culture that she grew up in comparison to life in the UK.

I'll be going back in November and staying overnight at the Galaxy Hotel as part of my end-of-work celebrations. Maybe I'll be a pro Blackjack player by this point. Até mais, Macau!
