First thing I wanna say about this place is that is that it's hard to pay anything with a HKD1000 bill there. Hardly anyone accepts it except probably the banks and casinos there. So if you are exchanging notes hkd notes to Macau from your country, make sure you don't accept that big a bill too. Otherwise, you will end up looking for places to exchange your HKD1000 to small notes.
Overall it was an enjoyable trip with cooling weather. A lot of police presence during our trip there, making us feel a tad safe and secure. The only downside is the crowd in the city. Lots of people everywhere especially in tourist attractions area and casinos.
There was a lot of free shuttle buses from hotels, so we manage to save quite a bit on transportation using their shuttle buses to get to where we want to go.
From the airport, we took the Venetian shuttle bus to their hotel. Actually we were suppose to go to city of dreams but their shuttle bus from airport only starts operating at 11am. Anyway, the city of dreams is just opposite the venetian. The only problem is that we need to walk a much longer distance using the walkway provided instead of just walking to the opposite road. Better take the city of dreams buses next time. Their buses is purple in colour.
We deposited our luggage at city of dreams and then took another free shuttle to galaxy. And from galaxy we took free shuttles to Rua Da Cunha. This street is filled with lots of bakery, snacks and food.
Later at night, we watched an amazing performance at the house of dancing water theatre. This performance was packed with a lot of wow factor, It was a jaw dropping performance and I wouldn't mind to watch this show again.
After the performance, we took the free shuttle from city of dreams to Hotel Sintra which is on the old side of Macau. From there we walked about 15 minutes to where we will be staying, London hotel. A nice and clean hotel. Good location as well as it's on the quieter side of the town. It's actually not far from most of the tourist attractions, just need to walk abit uphill and downhill.
