Take this day trip to
strike out into Macau and discover the extraordinary charm as well as rich

to China in 1999.
Starting out with a
convenient hotel pick up in Hong Kong and then a one-hour ferry ride across the
South China Sea, this fantastic outing takes you to the region’s multitude of
both classic and modern sights including Macau Casino, thus journeying through
the captivating Portuguese culture and history that dates from the 16th
attraction that you’ll visit is the Ruins of St Paul which contains the
remnants of a 16th century Jesuit church atop 66 steps. Al though it
was mostly damaged due to fire in 1830s, its stone façade - featuring beautiful
columns and beautiful carvings of biblical inspired themes - is still imposing.
Depending on your tour program, you’ll get to tour the full of life Senado
Square and enjoy a leisurely stroll along its cobble streets dotted with a slew
of shopping and dining outlets.
Popularly dubbed as the
‘Las Vegas of the East’, a Macau excursion is incomplete without checking out
its booming casino industry. So before you wind up your Macau trip with a
return ferry ride to Hong Kong, be sure to experience the excitement and thrill
of gambling at the renowned Macau Casino.
