On Day 2 we went to Macau. Didn’t do much, just meandered around The Venetian Hotel and poked our noses in the oddly-named Galaxy Hotel. (Odd because the hotel’s decor concept didn’t match the name at all.)
Part of the Venetian. Done up quite nicely, that one was.
Further inside the Venetian, they recreated the Venetian canal look, complete with gondolas and gondoliers that sing. Pretty good too. And at least one of the guys were quite good-looking. hahahhahah
Well, all my other pics looked pretty much the same and I got no really nice or interesting ones from Galaxy so that’s the end. On to Day 3…
Took a cable car to Ngong Ping 360 – some place up in the hills on Lantau Island that had a short road with shops built to resemble old China, and a Buddhist temple with a huge statue of Buddha on the hill.
The cable car ride was fairly long. Took about 20 minutes, maybe? Up and over one hill, across the lagoon, over another hill, and another, and then Ngong Ping 360.
Went up to Sky100, the 100th floor of the ICC tower, which is basically an observation deck that lets you see the whole of the city. Not much of a view to me, since I find HK’s architecture bland – lots of concrete apartment blocks and glass office towers. Two of my favourite pictures from there were of the sea rather than the city.
When I saw this somewhere in the underground mall beneath Sheraton, my first thought was: “HAHAHA I have to tell Terry/Jia Wern/Journey!! The Borg do photography and their supplier is in HK! Ahahahahaha”
Jokes like that only a few can understand.
