St. Paul Ruins-Macau

1

After walking for probably more than an hour, we reached this alley where we kept on going up until we saw the wall of St. Paul Ruins which I’ve seen only in google and as I mentioned earlier didn’t know how to get there but it was a mere coincidence. The place was crowded with tourists, people from every where came from all over the world to visit this sacred place (to them).

We went up the stairs thinking there will be something, all we saw tombs of I-don’t-know-who because the sun was really sharp, it was hot and I wasn’t in the mood to go around the tombs reading to whom it belonged but we enjoyed the view from up there, it was just beautiful seeing Senado Square from the top and the tiny people 🙂

Senado Square-Macau

1

One of the famous places in Macau is Senado Square. It’s the centre of everything and it has a lot of historical sites, once you start walking from that fountain you’ll see many European style buildings, churches, ruins etc. We walked a lot in that place and tried to find a cafe to rest our legs but there wasn’t any at the top, when we came down, we went to McDonald’s to have lunch and guess what? in the same alley we found lots of cafes 😛

Anyways, we kept walking up in the alleys until we saw something that looked like the ruins of St. Paul. I saw some pictures of it on google but didn’t know how to get there, it was a coincidence. The place was very crowded, so many people from every where but we were the only Arabs 🙂

I’ll write a post about St. Paul ruins later, but let’s continue talking about Senado Square. The place is divided to so many places, so many alleys and streets to walk through them, lots of people and students coming from every where, I advise you to go there when the sun is down so you want get burned while walking.

The Grand Canal-Macau

1

If you’ve googled Macau a little bit, you probably stumbled upon The Grand Canal. A not so huge shopping mall inside The Venetian huge hotel and has its own Gandola rides in a mini canal. I expected the place to be a little bit bigger but it was fine, there weren’t a lot of cafes, only few which we didn’t like so we went outside to the other mall and stayed in one of the cafes there.

I loved walking there and listening to The Gandola riders or whatever you wanna call them sing in Italian, their voices were really good and enjoyable. We took a ride which was fun even though we weren’t in Venice, we kinda felt like we were there.

The place is worth visiting and going around the shops if you want to do some shoppings. After that you gotta check the huge casino 😛

Dining at Rossio-MGM Macau

1

After booking MGM  hotel in Kuwait, I decided to take a look at the hotel and found out about some restaurant. What caught my eyes and tummy was Rossio, why? Because it had seafood and I’m addicted to it. They offer open buffet of whatever you want to eat, all kinds of seafood are there in the buffet; lobster, oysters, mussels, scallop, crabs, sushi, steak, noodles, soup, salads, stews, ice cream, candy and dessert and so many, I can’t even remember what was there in the buffet.

We had to make a booking, the restaurant was full that day but we managed to find a table for 2 at 8pm. When we reached there it was over crowded, so many people were dining there, not only couples but also families. Even though it was insanely crowded, the service didn’t disappoint. The staff looked very busy but they were friendly. The food was really good, loved everything about it, specially the seafood buffet which I enjoyed to the max, on the other hand my husband enjoyed the meat section, he loved the steak and how tender it was, not to mention the delicious sauces they offered. The bill came out around KD 30/- which was kinda reasonable.

Don’t miss dining at Rossio

MGM Hotel-Macau

1

The best hotel I’ve ever seen and stayed in so far. I can’t describe how beautiful and stunning this hotel was.

When my husband and I were looking for hotels to stay in in Macau, we were lost, all hotels were very beautiful and looked marvellous. We chose MGM and the hotel didn’t disappoint at all. When we first entered the lobby, we were speechless. The interior of the place was more than amazing but when we saw the ocean hall where it was designed to make you feel like you were in the sea, we couldn’t say a word. We just kept looking up and down and around. As you can see in the pictures which are  not showing you the real beauty of the place but a lil bit of it. In reality, it’s more than beautiful. The ocean hall has many cafes and restaurants, we had dinner at Rossio’s (coming post) and wanted to try the other restaurants but didn’t have time.

We arrived around 12 pm but they told us to wait until 3 pm until the room becomes ready. We didn’t mind that, the place was huge to explore and spend some time in it beside the hotel was connected to a mini mall where we went and had a walk in, not to mention the ocean hall where we saw a diver feeds the fish. They informed us our room is ready around 1:30pm and thank god we didn’t have to stay for that long. Our room was the smallest one in the hotel but it was very spacious. Plenty of place to put your things in without feeling jammed. And oh the toilet/bathroom, soooo beautiful.

Loved our stay at MGM Macau, the service of the hotel was more than great, the staff were very friendly, the place was very entertaining, you won’t feel bored at all if you didn’t go out, they even gave us 2 free tickets for a rock concert but we didn’t have the time to attend.

Macau at Night

1

Walking in Macau at night is more than fun, you enjoy the cool breeze at night, exploring the hundreds of casinos there, chatting with people from all over the worlds and looking at the most amazing buildings ever with all the colourful lights and signs. Just beautiful.

But if you keep on walking tip after midnight then you’ll start seeing things probably you wouldn’t want to see or look at. Drunk people all over the streets, he she people or whatever you call them, a woman who’s a man who is a …….. you name it 😛

The city is not for kids at night, of course you don’t want your kids looking at such situations. But the city is safe, you’ll find cops every where, because they’d expect things to happen after you get drunk and lose all your money. No one will come near you.

Hello Macau

1

Hello Macau, Hello mini Vegas

Macau is like the sin city of Asia. I’ve always wanted to visit this country and see how is it like over there. The country is full of casinos, wherever you go there is a huge casino. You turn left, casino. You turn right, casino. You go straight casino. I swear with no exaggeration every 10 mtrs you’ll find a casino. People are gambling day and night non stop.

I’ve always wanted to enter a casino and see how it is like inside there. My oh my, it’s full of lights and … I don’t know how to say it, but it looked like people were having lots of fun losing their money lol 😛 I wanted to take a photo of the place but they immediately lowered my camera and informed me it’s not allowed. I tried to do a trick with my iPhone and take a quick photo with it but guess what, a hue came from now where and asked me to shut it off. I swear, i tried hiding it but cameras were all over the place. I felt i was in Las Vegas TV Show 😀

Macau was really beautiful and fun to be in only for 1 or 2 days, that’s it. We spent only one night there and thought it was more than enough. Unlike, Hong Kong which was very affordable. Macau was very expensive, taxes every where. Whatever you buy, you gotta pay the shop/restaurant taxes add to that government taxes. So my advice, just go there, explore the city and have fun but don’t buy anything.

Macau was occupied by Portugal so wherever you go you’ll find signs written in Chinese, Portuguese and English. The buildings over there have this European style and structure, you’ll see it every where. I will show some buildings when I post about Senado Square and St. Paul ruins. And the country is full of huge beautiful hotels, every hotel is linked to the hotel. And literally, every hotel has its own mall, wherever you go, there is a hotel, casino, and a shopping mall.

It’s a not a family city, for couples yes, but totally not for kids.
