Macau, China - Travel Photography

We had 8 days in Hong Kong, so we decided to set aside one day for Macau. We planned to go Macau first on day 1 before carrying on with the trip to Hong Kong. We touched down late on the day, so we explored the areas around our hotel that night and carry on with the rest of the attractions the next day morning.

Macan is small but plenty to see so we were hoping to cover as much places in one day!

We didn't plan on shopping as we would be heading to Hong Kong which I assumed would be a better place to shop :) So without shopping as part of our itinerary in Macau, we had more time to visit the attractions.

Photography gear used - Nikon FM2 Film with Nikon 50mm f1.8 & Nikon 20mm f1.8.


Touching down.

It was around 9pm when we checked in. And it didn't take long for us to be out.

Most shops were closing. But we weren't there to shop :)

At Senado Square. People sat around the square after work before they left for home.

Travessa da Paixao. A historical street.

Next morning, we were out early searching for breakfast!

I had my FM2 with me this trip. I didn't use it much in Singapore. Had to get used to it and pray the photos turn out well :) That is the fun with film camera, you only know what you were getting after you had them scanned.

Hearty breakfast!

Still early so most shops were closed.

But again, we were not here for the shops. Our destination was right ahead. Ruins of St. Paul’s.

Possibly the most famous landmark in Macau. The Cathedral of St. Paul were originally constructed in the 16th century, but was burned down in 1835 leaving only one surviving wall.

We took a cab to The Venetian Macao. They had a architecture and the outdoor area was beautifully decorated to look like Venice. It was beautiful and made me want to go to Vernice :)

After we had enough photos at Venetian, we took a cab to Fisherman’s Wharf. There were shops and restaurants there but they were not open. Maybe we were too early?

It was just us.

But we had great photos here, maybe it was a place you should visit at night? ;)
