Travel Tales: Macau

Sep 27, 2010

My trip to Macau started like this: I didn't catch my plane. I've set my alarm wrong and ended up taking another flight 12 hours later. But that mishap didn't dampen my excitement, instead it just gave truth to this travel advice: when travelling solo, you have no one to rely but yourself. I love Macau's blend of old and new. The historical buildings and monuments are such a joy to photograph while the looming casinos provided luxurious entertainments to just immerse yourself in. I enjoyed walking around on foot because there just so many things to see.

Note the mosaic paving of the street. The whole of Macau is paved like these.

Oh,I love all of your photos! They´re so colorful and love those flower gardens too and the hanging flowers. Maybe someday I´ll get to visit Macau. ;)

On another note, your black and white stripey skirt compliments well with the background. ;)
