Asian mini-trip Series Part 11: Bienvenidos Macau!

This post is part of a series on our Asian mini-trip last December 2012, during my four-week home leave.After four amazing days in the Island Paradise, Boracay, we jumped on a bus to spend the night at Clark, Angeles City to catch our early morning flight commencing our 8-day trip around Singapore – Kuala Lumpur – Hong Kong and Macau. 🙂

Magandang Umaga ulit Hong Kong! Feel na feel ko talaga ang ginaw dine teh. Lalo pa’t uber lamig din ang tubig sa shower. Parang nung college days lang sa Baguio pag nagamadali ka pumasok sa umaga at no chance ka magprep ng hot water pampaligo LOL.

And so, matapos ang maghapong lagalag kahapon mula Victoria Peak, AOS hanggang Mongkok  e maaga ulit kaming gumising, nagkape’t tinapay then lumarga na to check out. Goralets na sa MACAU! 🙂

We just walked papuntang ferry terminal. Malapit naman medyo naligaw nga lang kami. I’ve read that it is within a Mall. Pero sa dami ng naglalakihang gusali along Canton Road e nalito kami kung alin dun hehehe.

Sa wakas, nahanap din naming at dahil maaga pa, naglibot kami ng konti sa loob at kumain sa Mc Donald’s. Ansarap nung breakfast macaroni soup nila. Winner.

Almusal. McDonalds. Bow.

We got our Turbojet tickets then proceeded to immigrations prior to boarding the ferry.

Umuulan at medyo maalon ang byahe, pero we arrived safely naman.

Passed through immigrations ulit, got maps sa Tourist center bago lumabas and looked for the Bus Stop.

Sumakay kami ng Bus No. 10 and bumaba sa hinulaan naming bababaan (in Portuegese at Chinese kasi yung asa bus). Basta lampas yun ng Senado Square at ilang minutes lang ng paglalakad e nahanap din naming ang aming hostel – SanVa Hospedaria.

Mahal ang mga hotels sa Macau (ayon sa research ko sa net at rates sa Agoda) kaya SanVa was a practical choice.  Hindi naman kami choosy at ang importante e may bed at may banyo.  Maghapon ka ngarud lagalag sa labas so no need for a pricey accommodation (read: kuripotness as usual) hehe.

Heto ang website ng SanVa Hospedaria. May email dyan at very commendable ang kanilang clear and prompt communication.

Sa lahat halos ng online blogs and guides ay nabanggit ang pagbisita sa Venetian as a must. Hindi lang kasi sya for gaming kundi isang malaking entertainment centre with outlet shops and food centre.
