As we arrived Macau 1 day early due to AirAsia no flight from Penang to Macau. We have to pay on our own the accommodation as well as the breakfast. (extra bed for 3 person in a room and the breakfast only cover 2 person. So, have to purchase another pax at MOP40)
How was it? healthy isn’t it? After Breakfast, we went to have a training session at Nam Van Lake Nautical Centre to test the water..! the weather is cold as well as the water.
Old type of dragon boat with the background of old building in Macau.
This Nam Van Lake Nautical Centre is a strategic location to host dragon boat event as it surrounded by many casino like Grand Lisboa, Wynn
and Macau Tower. The 7th Club Crew World Championship (CCWC) on 2010 going to host here. We have the privilege to row here really good~!
What a lovely place, let take a group photo here
After a few round of “test water” we go back to hotel take a refreshment and lunch at Hotel before transfer by Hotel Shuttle bus to Macau Hong Kong Port. The best thing in Macau is the transportation. you can travel around places for free as most of the Hotel do provide free shuttle bus transfer between their Hotel and Macau Hong Kong Port. while on the Pousada Marina shuttle bus to the dock:
This should be the Macau Cultural Centre if not mistaken.
Nearby is the Sand Hotel. In front of Sand Hotel, there is famous place called Fisherman Wharf
Which ride to take? We check on the map, to go to Senado Square, the nearer hotel is Grand Emperor Hotel. So, we took a free ride from the hotel. During the ride, take some photos of Macau:

this place sell Ice cream. I go inside and get a scoop of yam favour ice cream just found that it cost MOP20….it kind of expensive…..!
Another food that not to miss, the famous Almond Cookie. I did not buy the “Dai San Ba” brand of Almond Cookie because Daniel mention to me that Koi Kei one taste better. Of course “Dai San Ba” one more cheaper.
and Portuguese Tart at MOP6. Indeed, it is very delicious
