Macau – I am back to this familiar land again. I would prefer to visit Macau during the winter period where the weather is more cooling. This time round my experience was more pleasant when wifi is readily available at many places.
A question to ask – is Macau suitable for families with kids? I would say it depends what you are looking for? If you are looking for theme parks or playgrounds I bet you will be disappointed. It is different if you are a sucker for Macanese cuisine and sight-seeing. I’m sure there are some attractions that suit your taste for example:
– Macau Tower (fancy a bungee jump from the top…)
You have two transport options to choose when you arrive in Macau – either to take a cab or complimentary shuttle bus. I chose the latter.
Just exit at the right hand side of the airport and you will see a shuttle bus depot.
Look for the shuttle bus with the hotel logo you are travelling to and hop in!
The shuttle bus provides free wifi, at least for mine. 🙂
Holiday Inn Macao is a relatively new hotel with more than 1,200 rooms. Checking in was a breeze. I strongly recommend tourists to stay in this hotel because it is new, clean and spacious.
This is how the Deluxe room looks like. I would say it is spacious and definitely clean.
Next to the hotel lobby, you will be greeted by these cartoon characters.
Within the hotel, facilities such as gym and swimming pool are available for guests.
官也街 or Guanye Street (Rua do Cunha) is one of the main attractions on the island in Cotai in Macau. It is not a big place to explore. In fact, you can easily explored this place within an hour. However, you can certainly find local restaurants, bistros and shops selling local goodies on this Taipa street. A trip to Macau is not completed without coming here.
Kind of touristy “feel”.
It is easy to take a cab from Holiday Inn at Sands Cotai Central to 官也街 or Guanye Street (Rua do Cunha). The cab fee should not exceed more than HKD 42. Getting a cab back to the hotel may not be easy due to many tourists queuing up at the taxi stand to return to their hotels. You can still choose to walk back and appreciate the views. I estimated it would take between 20 to 30 mins by foot.
I stopped by at Venetian Macao shoppe.
A walk out of the building you will be greeted by casinos after casinos.
You will be amazed that construction never ceased in Macau. New buildings and destinations are always on the cards.
Well, taking a transport back to the airport is also complimentary. If I were to be back again, I plan to do a review of the site of old Macau.
