24 hours in Macao

Macao (also spelled Macau) is, along with Hong Kong, one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the People’s Republic of China.
Just a short 1-hour ferry ride from Hong Kong, it is popular for its casinos and hip nightlife AND it houses the highest bungy  jump in the world!
I’m obviously not brave enough to jump from any bungy, let alone the highest one in the world, but I accompanied my two friends who, without giving it much thought, decided to try it.
Macao was once a Portuguese colony and this is apparent in the infrastructure of the city. It has a very distinct European charm and for a minute there you forget that you are actually in Asia. By night, on the other hand, the casinos and clubs light up  giving it a Vegas feel.
Even though our stay in Macau was short (we had to take the last ferry back to Hong Kong) we definitely saw a lot  of what makes it unique and enjoyed our time there.
Here are the photos !

Macao es una de las dos Regiones Administrativas Especiales de la República Popular China (junto con Hong Kong) y esta situada a 60 kilómetros al sur de HK.
La infraestructura de la ciudad muestra que fue una colonia portuguesa y definitivamente todavía hay influencias Europeas en esta ciudad.
Uno de los atractivos principales es el bungy de AJ Hackett en la Torre de Macao; el mas alto del mundo! Yo, obviamente, no tengo el valor de tirarme de un bungy y mucho menos del mas alto pero acompañé a mis dos amigas (muy valientes!) que decidieron intentarlo.
En la noche nos paseamos por la ciudad, vimos las ruinas de la Catedral de San Juan y entramos a algunos casinos.
Aunque solo fueron 24 cortas horas en Macao, definitivamente la pasamos muy bien.
Aqui están algunas fotos!
