*Merry Christmas!!! Hope you guys have a wonderful and fantastic Christmas celebration!!!*
Other than the Macau Museum which we failed to visit, we also did go to another museum, which was the Macau Maritime Museum. Actually, it was the A-Ma Temple that we wanted to visit which was right next to the maritime museum but unfortunately, it was raining rather heavily at the time so we made a detour to the museum to have a look at the exhibition (and not wanting to be under the rain).
|Macau Maritime Museum|
Macau has a rich history in maritime as it was the major trading port back in the Portuguese colonial period in the 16th century. As you walked through the extensive exhibitions, you will get to be a step closer to the olden days of Macau. Models of boats and ships are on display as well as detailed maps of the routes taken by famous explorers.

That’s the end of the Hong Kong – Macau trip which took ages for me to finish. Laziness is my nature. Next stop, Kuching!
Sharing is caring. A word of advice and a piece of information.
The entrance fee for the Macau Maritime Museum is MOP5 for kids of 10 to 17 years old and MOP10 for 18 and above. Those under 10 and seniors over 65 can enter for free. The museum closed on every Tuesday so plan well if you want to visit it.
