Highlights from Macau and Hong Kong

Macau Casinos – The influx of capital into Macau has grown the city immensely even since the last time I was there in 2008. A lot of the people we saw at the casinos were mainland Chinese people with tons of money… which continue to fuel the economy. We enjoyed a dragon show, an art display and a water show at the Wynn.

Just like Las Vegas, right?

Ruins of St. Paul’s and Monte Fort – This was a nice little piece of history and you could spend approximately an hour there (or more if you visit the museum).

Grand Prix Museum – In my opinion, this is a hidden gem. Macau is famous for their race track and the races that have been on the circuit. I got to see one of my favorite drivers  car, Aryton Senna’s F1 car.

Under Bridge Spicy Crab – First restaurant stop in HK and it was totally worth it. The dry fried garlic crab was delicious!

This view is amazing at night

High Tea @ Intercontinental – Why not right? I’m not one to enjoy these types of activities, but a view like this made it worth it!

Big Buddha – We opted for a glass-bottom gondola up to the Buddha and it was worth it!

Ozone Bar @ The Ritz-Carlton HK – 118 floors up. Expensive drinks, but impressive views and a cool breeze.

Seafood – Happy Seafood Restaurant was a little gem that Trudy brought us to. But overall the seafood in Hong Kong was delicious. Pricey, but totally worth it if you’re on vacation. There are numerous variations of shrimp, clam, grab and other great seafood to choose from. It goes from tank to table in minutes.
