Photowalking Tour: Macau 2012

Here are some snapshots from our photo walk tour in Macau, one of the two Special Administrative Regions (SAR) in China aside from Hongkong.  I really wanted to visit this place and see for myself its culture, tradition, people, geography and all great things I read and heard about this place.  I was really impressed by what I saw and experienced there.  Also, I can't pass the chance of visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Senado Square which is part of the Historic Center of Macau. It was a worthy visit indeed.    

The Statue of Guanyin

The fog prevented us to see the length of this Macau bridge
