5 Days in Macao


Going to Macao was my first experience traveling to Asia and it was truly an unforgettable trip. From the incredible food to the architecture and culture, I was blown away! The Macao tourism board for the USA invited Noelle and I (along with 2 other awesome bloggers Keiko Lynn and Mustafa Kacar) to explore Macao for 5 days. I'm sharing some of my favorite highlights from the trip below!
Macao was governed by the Portuguese until 1999 and that interesting cultural fusion is omnipresent through the (petite) country. You'll see a European church just next to a Chinese temple! The Facade of Saint Paul's church is a beautiful representation of that Portuguese heritage. 
An adorable tea shop! We tried a few blends of jasmine and black tea. 
Well wishing at the A-Ma Temple. 

The extravagantly beautiful staircase at our hotel, the JW Marriott. 
A quick lemonade break at Single Origin coffee, a very Brooklyn-esque coffee shop in town.
The view from our hotel room!!!
Charming and colorful European style streets of St. Lazarus square. 
The lazy river at our hotel complex, Galaxy Macau. 
One of my favorite treats? The egg custard tarts from Lord Stowe's!
Noodle pulling workshop at MGM Macau! 
The bustling downtown at rush hour! 
An incredible art installation made of 100% real flowers at the Wynn Palace.

Special thanks to the Macao Tourism Board for taking us to an incredible new country! I can't wait to go back to Asia and explore!
