Day 4 – Morning Walk Around Senado Square and a Day at the Venetian Hotel Macao


On our last day, I was up and done with my baggage early.  While my friend was doing hers, I left to buy for our breakfast.  I saw myself back at Senado Square with a McDonald’s meal in mind.  On my way, I took a shot of the Post Office Building then the alley beside House of Mercy and it pumped my shooting whim so I kept walking…

My foot brought me to Largo da Se where I saw the listing of Macau’s structures or landmarks of World Heritage comprising the Historic Centre of Macau.  I figured that I was at the Cathedral Square, the first on the list, that houses the Cathedral of Macau, a fountain and a large cross.

Then I entered Travessa da Se for the Lou Kau Mansion and then, I retraced the path to St. Dominic Church.

I was out for nearly an hour so before my friend bother my whereabouts, I returned with a McDonald’s macaroni soup and pancake at hand.

We left the villa at exactly 12 noon for our Venetian Hotel trip.  Fearful of getting lost again, we decided to take the shuttle from Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 to Macau Ferry Terminal where we took another shuttle to the Venetian Macao.

Our Macau Island trip was concluded with beautiful shots taken on our way to Taipa Island.

It was past 1:00 o’clock when we left the concierge for our Venetian tour.  Dubbed as the Venice of Asia, it mimic’s the canals of Venice with gondolas and singing gondoliers.  I so wanted to experience the gondola ride but with hubby not with me, a glimpse of it did for now.

There were plenty of restaurants in the hotel but when we saw the signage towards a food court, our foot fleeted at once.  Thereafter, we spent the rest of our afternoon touring the Venetian.

We also entered the casino area and were tempted to join the Dragon Master Slot Tournament but with no casino game experience, we just watched on the side.

Our Venetian tour ended with a short musical play in one of the alleys of the shops.  There are more ways to enjoy the Venetian but ours well… it was already a cream of the crop to our Hongkong-Macau trip.
