GLITTERS OF MACAU 2 (HONGKONG-MACAU TRIP Part 14)

The Galaxy Hotel

GLITTERS OF MACAU 2 (HONGKONG-MACAU TRIP Part 14)

That was almost 12NN when we left Monte Fort, but  we’ve decided to have a  late lunch since were not hungry yet. So our next destination, GALAXY HOTEL.

Galaxy Hotel is a Palace-Inspired Building decked out like an Asian palace, its gold color scheme, and Chinese-inspired designs offer an inviting atmosphere to every  guest.

We’ve entered at the  second lobby where one can have an  interactive experience: the immense Wishing Crystals, numerous gems that rise from the ground.Its  a marvel of interaction: you can wave your hands before the crystals and watch them pulse with light and music.

Another feature of the Galaxy hotel is the Fortune Diamond is located at the main lobby – it’s a mammoth three-meter gem that rises before your very eyes from behind a waterfall.

The Venetian Macau

After brushing the Galaxy Hotel, we went straight to the Venetian Macau-Resort-Hotel. It  has its own Venice-like “Grand Canal” bordered by a shopping esplanade featuring world’s finest designer and popular retail brands. Across cobblestone walkways from the shops flows the canal itself. Singing gondoliers mostly Filipinos on the water compete for the attention of guests with strolling musicians on the walkway. Observing at the Soprano Filipino gondoliers made me feel proud as a Filipino.

The Venetian Macau

Right across the Venetian Macau is the City of Dreams which is home of Crown Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, and Grand Hyatt Macau

At the lobby of the Crown Hotel is the Virtual Aquarium  where aquatic life and mermaids will mesmerize you. We’ve been waiting for the mermaids to come out for a photo op Come to Aquarium and see mermaids come to life before your eyes!

It’s time to come back to the other side of Macau. Again the transportation is free. We went back to the Emperor Hotel to have our late lunch. Our guide told us to just eat and they will just come back to fetch us up, maybe they don’t want us to spend more for their lunch. But we are Filipinos, we insisted that they will eat with us. That was an enjoyable late lunch for us siblings together with our 2 tour guides.

After our lunch, we have to walk again to the Grand Lisboa. The Grand Lisboa  is shaped like a giant lotus flower.The new Grand Lisboa is connected by a footbridge with the original Hotel Lisboa.

Wynn Macau

A few meters away is the Wynn Hotel.  Part of Wynn Macau’s charm is a variety of flamboyant decorations in its lobbies. Its Tree of Prosperity is a gold-leaf creation that rises from the floor in a choreographed display of light and music. A 28-foot-tall Dragon of Fortune emerges from the fog, its eyes glowing.

After the show, we rushed  back already at the Ferry terminal for Hongkong.

Fishermans Wharf

Before we went back to the Ferry Terminal we dropped by Macau’s Fishermans Wharf. The wharf is near Macau Maritime Terminal, Macao Fisherman’s Wharf is Macau’s first theme park as well as a shopping center modeled on Euramerican fisherman’s wharfs. Macau Fisherman’s Wharf has an area of over 111,500 square meters (about 28 acres), of which 40 percent is reclaimed from the sea.

 

Macao Fisherman’s Wharf    was invested in by Ho Hung San (One of the top 10 billionaires in the Hong Kong-Macau region through running his gambling business) and Chow Kam Fai (a Macau entrepreneur in the tourism, entertainment and gambling industries). The total investment in the project is about MOP1.9 billion. The wharf was inaugurated on December 31st, 2005, in the presence of Ho Hau-wah, the chief executive of Macao, and Ho Hung San. On December 23rd, 2006, it was opened to the public formally. Now, it is rapidly emerging as a popular attraction.

With different characteristics, Macau Fisherman’s Wharf can be divided into three main sections: Dynasty Wharf, East Meets West, and Legend Wharf. Dynasty Wharf is composed of many Chinese towers, which are built in the imitation of the Tang-style. Macau East Meets West mixes together oriental traditions and features of the western design, including a 40-metre (about 131 feet) tall man-made volcano, waterfalls, architectures of Greece, an ancient battleship, an Arabian children’s play area, a Roman Amphitheatre, a characteristic shopping mall and exhibition facilities. Legend Wharf is equipped with all kinds of recreational facilities, such as a High-tech Games Center, Water Performance Arena and a Video Games Center.

With large amounts of money being invested in expertise and manpower, the Fisherman’s Wharf will develop further to be a well-equipped place for public entertainment. It is worth noting that the wharf sits right beside the Sands Macau, which is another place to further your visit.
