A DAY TRIP TO MACAU.

Hong Kong, Day 3 - Hong Kong to Macau.

A day trip to Macau. After a hearty breakfast at the market, it was time to make the move. We will be meeting up with the rest of our group at the Hong Kong - Macau Ferry Terminal.
At the MTR Kowloon Bay Station, I noticed that Hong Kong people walk very fast. When using the escalator, always stand on the right side to leave the left side free for those who are on the hurry.

Waiting for the approaching MTR coach.

Queuing and waiting for the ferry.
Here are some of the snapshots I have taken on the ferry ride between Hong Kong and Macau.

Shun Tak Centre - China Merchants Tower.

I managed to get a seat next to the window.

Some like me were taking photos, some were checking their mobile phones.

Some took the opportunity to rest or catch up on their forty winks.

The ferry ride took about an hour depending on the sea condition.

The ferry can take in a few hundred passengers.

It was a cloudy day, at times gloomy.

We were on the Turbojet Ferry.

Pete was pointing out all the important buildings to us.

But I couldn't remember most of them, sorry Pete....
Out in the open sea, the ride was smooth and none of us suffered any sea sickness.

Approaching Macau...



Passing under the bridge...

The building on the left is the Macau Science Centre.

Hotels and casinos of Macau beckoned...

Leaving Macau for Hong Kong...

We have these two young friends entertaining us with their playful teasing and chatters while travelling on the MTR.

An offended friend is harder to win back than a fortified city.

Arguments separate friends like a gate locked with bars.

  23. Brilliant photos. The buildings were amazing. I noticed that as you approached the building the water changed from a blue to a brown. Why is it that way? I also noticed cruise ships. Where do they go? I ask a lot of questions, don't I?
    Have a brilliant Saturday Nancy. See ya.

    1. Paul, I am not sure but I think the brown water could be due to some construction work, etc. going on somewhere nearby. About the cruise ships, I have not idea. Have a good Sunday!
