Part 9: Hong Kong - Macau Trip Day 3 - Macau Tour Part 2 (Grand Lisboa, Wynn Hotel, Fisherman's Wharf)


From Largo do Senado (Senado Square), off we went to see some other casino hotels nearby.


4th Stop - Grand Lisboa


We went back to main road from Largo do Senado, if you saw part 8 of this post, the bus stop in the map going back  needs a lot of walk. And once you reach the bus stop at Av. Infante De Henrique, it is near Grand Lisboa.  They say you can walk from Senado Square to Grand Lisboa, we did it, but our feet were tired from a lot of walking since day 1.


While walking we couldn't help to take picture in Grand Lisboa's facade - mirror mirror mirror!

Finally we arrived in Grand Lisboa.

A beautiful chandelier awaits you at the reception area.

Grand Lisboa's reception is like a museum, there are different beautiful & huge pieces to check out.

Tired, we went to their cafe/restaurant to rest.  Crystal Lounge and Deli has a wide selection of cake,  sandwiches and coffee.  We only tried their cakes and coffee because we're still full from beef jerky free taste at Largo do Senado/Senado Square.  Feeling sosyal kami.  What we liked about their cafe is that, the crew have small badge of flags in their uniform.  In that way,  you'll know what language a waitress can speak.  Needless to say, we were assissted by a Filipina crew.  :)    From the cafe you'll be able to see casino below, and some shows to entertain them.  (Photographs are not allowed in casino)  We stayed here for more or less 2 hours.  Really tired eh?

5th Stop: Wynn Hotel

Wynn Hotel is another casino hotel within the vicinity.  From Grand Lisboa go straight to its adjacent building, Hotel Lisboa, then infront of it, on the other side of the road is the Wynn Hotel.  It is another luxurious hotel to explore. 

The entrance, so red!

you'll see a see through window with this design outside

fascinating lights

I already forgot where this is in particular but because of exploring the hotel we saw this elegant design.

And now we finally found the Tree of Prosperity and Dragon of Fortune Show here in Wynn hotel.  There is a 30-minute interval so we had to wait and check out their casino first.  This is a short free show a friend of mine told me about.

something is coming out!

the show!

Outside Wynn Hotel, you can see Macau tower, we were not able to manage to go there, but you can always include it as part of your itinerary.  You can do bungee jumping, it is quite expensive but if you have the money and you have the guts, I say go for it!


I asked my friends if it's okay to wait until nighttime.  They agreed.  It is because the fountain show outside Wynn Hotel, is better to see at night.


Also, you can check out this lovely bridge beside Wynn Hotel.  Forgive me with the shot, I don't know about long exposure photography back then.

6th Stop - Fisherman's Wharf

Just beside Macau Ferry Terminal is the Macau Fisherman's Wharf.  I made this our last spot as it would be easy to go back to Macau Ferry Terminal.  From the bus station at Grand Lisboa/Hotel Lisboa, we rode 3A bus and dropped off at  bus stop near Sand's Hotel which is infront of Macau Fisherman's Wharf.    It is a themed attraction where structures are landmarks of different places worldwide.

We arrived here before 8pm, no entrance fee here.  We were somehow disappointed because it seems most stores were closed.  We couldn't find any restaurant to eat. We were hungry and it is a long walk to the other end.  The landmarks are beautiful but some parts don't have lights at all.  I thought that because it is Macau, the stores would be open until night.  I guess I'm wrong again.


There's no bus stop at the other end of Macau Fisherman's Wharf so we took a taxi to Macau Ferry Terminal.  We were able to bought our food there, and ate it while we were sailing.  The waves were huge and crazy that time reason why a lot of kids and adult vomitted while we were heading back to Hong Kong.  I say exploring Macau is inexpensive unless you'll stay in one of five star hotel or you'll jump at Macau tower.

TIP: Bring a lot of water to avoid dehaydration

My next post! Ngong Ping 360 on our last day!
