Day 2: Macau

In the afternoon we took a public bus to Hac Sa Beach at Coloane island (Macau consists of three islands, i.e. Macau, Taipa and Coloane). It was a very windy day, the beach was deserted and there was nothing much to see. Hac Sa means Black Sand, but there was not much of black sand as far as I could see. Before I came, I have already searched about this on the internet, the beach is supposed to be covered in black!!

Then we had our lunch at Fernando, a Portuguese restaurant recommended by Lonely Planet. It was so crowded with Caucasians. We ordered BBQ chicken and pork steak. The food was just average.

After we finished our lunch we took the same bus back to the city. On our way back, we passed the Venetian casino which is still under construction. It looked exactly the same as the Venetian in Las Vegas.

The Grand Lisboa is still under construction, but they have already opened the casino.

Not much of visitors here even on Saturday. I think it is a failed project.

This was the only photo I have of the Sands (at the background)

The interior of the casino is not that great, but it has the most crowd among the three.
