Macau - an hour ferry ride from Hong Kong

A few shots from a short trip to this interesting city:


The main avenue




Skyline




the historic centre of Macau is a UNESCO heritage site consisting 20+ buildings and locations




Senado Square - the heart of Macau




the most interesting thing to see in this city is the unique mixture of Chinese and Portuguese cultures and architecture




at midnight








Macau Tower








Rua da Felicidade (Happiness Road) - once a red light district




If you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, Coloane (Island) is the right place!




Coloane Village has a very tranquil atmosphere and great Portuguese food (perhaps the best in Macau)




use of tiles





Inside a temple of Tam Kung - an patron deity of seafarers




Hac Sa (Black Sand) Beach - now mixed with yellow sand due to whatever reason








Mainland China is just across a river from Coloane




i'm not fond of casinos, but this one is pretty



Taipa - a major residential district




Near the Taipa House Museum is a large lotus pond park. We sat for an hour just to rest our legs




a singer



Hope you enjoyed.

Wow - very interesting shots as you say, a little bit of everything there - Spanish Colonial, Portuguese Colonial, Venetian and Asian!
