24 Hours In Macau: The First 12

We left Hong Kong in the afternoon by ferry and visited a country I can now happily add to my list of places I’ve visited. The entire trip was planned by my aunt…I say “entire” but it really was just for a short 24 hours.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn at the Sands Cotai Central. It was probably the fanciest Holiday Inn room I’ve ever had the pleasure to stay.

Holiday Inn, Conrad and Sheraton hotels all connected by a casino, numerous shops, restaurants, conference rooms, ballrooms and a large arcade area.

Following a 20 minute rest, we were off to the City of Dreams (how magical!) to watch a show called The House of Dancing Water. I quite generously enjoyed it. If there’s anything that’s a must see in Macau, it’s absolutely that! It’s like…Cirque du Soleil on water.

I most likely consumed some poorly prepared shrimp for lunch before hopping onto the ferry to Macau because as soon as the show was over, the rest of the evening was not in my favour. I go to Macau and, as luck would have it, food poisoning. First time in my life. Sure won the draw of life, didn’t I? Irony.

I just about made it to take a peep at the Galaxy Macau. I wish I could’ve seen more than the food court and the entrance. I decided after having some soup for dinner that it was necessary to call it an early night. Sadly, the rest of my family went exploring the hotels around and did a bit of shopping without me.
