One day in Macau

We stayed in Hong Kong so we took a boat to get to Macau. The boat was big. It took about an hour to Macau. I did not fell well because of seasick. It was lunch time when we got there. We decided to have noodle as my guidebook recommended. This place was called Wong Chi Kei. Ben got thick noodle with seafood. I got thin noodle with shrimp won ton. It was great and I liked Ben’s bowl better. We also bought dried noodle back to make our own bowl at home.

This yellow colonial style building is St. Dominic’s Church. According to the sign, this church was established in 1587 by three Spanish Dominican priests who originally came from Acapulco, in Mexico. It was originally built in wood, hence its naming in Chinese as Pan Cheong Tong meaning “Church of Wooden Planks”.

The resident buildings were very compact and the street was very narrow.

Don’t forget to stop by this pork bun place because it was so good and smelt nice.

We tried to get to the Ruins of St. Paul’s. Unfortunately, there was parade today so the main street was closed all the way to St. Paul. That was the reason why I couldn’t get the nice shot of the Ruins of St. Paul’s. In the photo we walked pass through the museum to get there.

Our last destination here was Our Lady of Penha church. It was up hill. We were here by a taxi since this church would be closed soon.

I like Hong Kong more than Macau because there were more tourists in Macau and  I don’t like to be on the boat for a long time. It has more things to do in Hong Kong.
