Away for the Weekend: Macau Adventure

This is my first time to fly out of the country! And it was really special because it was for our honeymoon. Our destination — historic and cosmopolitan Macau. It was a great experience; Macau is a beautiful place filled with memorable sights and tastes. Here’s to share some photos from our lovely trip.

  1. There are year-round low fare promos. While it was just a gift for us, we were informed that it was on seat sale so it was less than P10,000 for the two of us, round trip.
  2. You can tour Macau at no cost. The hotels offer free shuttle services to the different tourist spots in Macau. No need to ask for permission!
  3. Since Macau is small, you can tour it in a day. Plan your trip well so you’d have more time to see other attractions and shows.
