This is my first time to fly out of the country! Our destination — historic and cosmopolitan Macau. And it was really special because it was for our honeymoon. It was a great experience; Macau is a beautiful place filled with memorable sights and tastes. it was a unique destination that marries the old and the new, and caters to history buffs and luxury travelers alike. Here’s to share some of the best 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.
