Macau: The Country of Dreams

Finally had an escape from a daily routine even though it only took a little while. There is more to this country than how it is referred as a casino capital in Asia, as it also includes the following attractions.

Macau is not an ideal place for multi-travelers, like me, to visit. Its imitated, yet developed, and mostly man-made attractions makes it a less interesting country to step into, as those are typically found in many European and Asian countries (e.g. Gondola boats and the sea, which is originally found in Venice, Italy) and are more worth to see in the named continents. Meanwhile, the picturesque graffiti walls in some buildings, the House of Dancing Water, and the amazing interiors of Venetian Macao, malls, even over pass walking areas are what appeals me most. Macau is most recommended for first-time and amateur travelers to visit, thus the title of the blog entry named: “Macau: the Country of Dreams.”

I personally enjoyed my stay despite the imitated and less interesting attractions seen in the country. I am glad to have given the opportunity to visit a place I myself have never set my foot into, and to take a break from my routine, busy, and fast-paced daily life.
