It was so rewarding to see how so many people liked and viewed my Macau Eats post, since I’ve always loved sharing photographs, I’ve decided to share some places we’ve walked around and been to.
Honestly, I’m those hongkongers who have never gone over to Macau for casinos, I’ve only been here twice, and this time watching House of Dancing Water was the sole purpose. We stayed in the south of Macau, in Cotai Area, where most of the casinos are in walking distance, we spent a day walking around The Galaxy and Venetian, I personally am not really into gambling so we’ve only walked around and spent most of our money on food. 😂
House of Dancing Water
Until now I’m still mesmerised by their performance, definitely the highlight of our simple weekend trip. For anyone about to get their tickets, I would recommend the splash zone! (yes, I said the Splash zone) you’ll be provided with towels within the first four rows there, and trust me, the show is way more entertaining when you get to be splashed at deliberately by dancers and having a clown that could grab your towel half way of the show. 😍
I would definitely go watch this show again. The ballet dancer, the high dives, the Russian swing and of course not the forget the motorcycle performance, they were so impressive and magnificent to watch, definitely worth every penny.
Tickets are at HKD$780 per adult, if you’re a student, simply show your student card and you would get tickets at $702, remember to preorder online!
Macallan Bar @ The Galaxy
For whiskey lovers, be sure to stop by the Macallan Bar! We’ve each had a few drinks and the prices were fairly cheap in comparison to Hong Kong night life. Not only do they have a huge collection of Whiskey to choose from, they also have a large collection of Gin and Cocktails. Be sure to sit close to the bar, there’s live music and the bartender – Jiggers, is amazing at making signature cocktails to your taste!
For those who enjoy cigars once in a while, they also have a menu there, just ask the bartenders and they can talk you through each and every one of them!
Be sure to walk around Galaxy after visiting the bar, the interior design is amazing.
Love Lane and Ruins of St Paul’s
Ruins of St Paul’s is a must-see attraction when you’re in Macau, but being there during the weekend was definitely a nightmare, the streets were filled with people trying to get souvenirs, we were just lucky to be able to walk through the crowds with our luggages.😅
After we’ve successfully navigated through the crowds, we came across a pretty unique street, with brightly coloured walls, along with some traditional windows. This is the Travessa Da Paixão, also known as the Love Lane (戀愛巷). From the name, we saw a lot of couples wondering up here just to take photos! Definitely a street to stop by!
When you’re wondering up and down Love Lane, be sure to check out Hei’s Time Shop, this is by far one of the cutest watch boutique I’ve ever came across, displaying special watches and decorations outside and along the inside of the shop, and at the back they seem to have a barbara’s business going as well!
The area around St Paul’s ruins proudly displays the lifestyles of the olden days, I’ve enjoyed every minute walking around here, and I believe as tourists, simply being around Cotai area is not enough, here around the ruins of St Paul’s (大三巴) you’ll be able to see old residents taking a walk and reading newspapers by the streets, or loud business owners yelling out what discounts they have for the Macau souvenirs, it is for sure a place you have to be physically to get a feel of the local businesses and lifestyles.
