MACAU 澳门 ~ Part II

After our trip to the Senado Square and the Ruins of St. Paul's, we proceed to The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel which is located at the Cotai Strip 路氹. We took the free shuttle bus service by The Venetian which run to the ferry wharf and the border gate frequently from early until late.

The sky turned cloudy and started to drizzle.Cute Emoticons
We were on the road to the Cotai Strip ~ a reclaimed land and has been developing its casino, entertainment and tourism businesses.

During our bus journey, we saw the prestigious City of Dreams 新濠天地 (Grand Hyatt Macau, Hard Rock Macau, Crown Towers Hotels and a luxury apartment which is planned at a later phase of development)Cute Emoticons

This is the famous Portuguese egg tarts from Lord Stow's Bakery. Thumbs up! The buttery flaky pastry and custard filling is rich and delicious. I definitely can eat more than 2 pieces and have a cup of hot tea or latte to go along will be perfectly good! Love Emoticons
