So early start as we needed to get hour long ferry to Macau, but firstly we needed to get to Hong Kong island, which we decided to do by boat (we normally go by underground). This worked well in theory, however we accidentally got on the wrong boat and ended up, still on the right island, but at the wrong pier and had to get taxi to right pier, oops we'll know for next time lol.
The ferry to Macau was expensive, $134 hk, which is about 13 pound, but for only one way. Didn't like the boat journey, my stomach liked it even less, and I spent most of the journey in the toilet, can't believe I paid so much for this experience. Once in Macau though, we went for Portugese lunch and then of to the Macau tower, where the highest bungee jump in the world is, at 233 metres. We looked at doing it, however it was 170 pound, which is well out of our budget, obvioulsy this was the only reason lol. We went up the tower though, and ate ice cream whilst we watched other stupid people pay the price and jump of the building.
As the place was really expensive we decided maybe we should try our lucky in the casinos, which apparently is all Macau is famous for, being the Las Vegas of Asia. It was fun, didn't venture further than the slot machines though, as I was struggling to understand the concept of some of them. Suzy was the only one who won anything, a whole profit of $10 when she left. I made a loss, only a small one though mind, $4=40 pence. So think I'll survive, since we spent a good few hours in there.
We went to the Largo Do senado which is the symbolic heart of Macau, this is where the Santa Casa was, a place which once housed orphans and prostitutes. We had dinner near by here, then caught a bus back to the ferry terminal. We decided to get a bus straight back to Kowloon, which is the part of hong kong we were staying in. This ferry was more expensive, however did mean for Cat and I's sake it was only one ferry. This one was just as bad as the last one :(
Had a good day, although my stomach was not impressed, what was great was the amount of stamps I received on my passport, one for leaving hong kong, one for entering macau, one for leaving macau and one for entering hong kong, bonus or what.
