Lifeguards on duty at Hac sa beach. Compared to the beaches and the waves back home in Australia, I'm not sure why guards are needed, but I suppose there must be a need.
For many tour groups visiting Macao, Hac Sa beach is where they get a chance to have a few minutes to roam around, most tourists want to feel the black sand beneath their feet.
The Moorish barracks in Macao is another example of the Portuguese influence. This building was home to a regiment of policemen from Goa - another Portuguese colony in Asia.
A typical narrow street in Macao, showing the street markets selling household goods, clothing, fruit, vegetables and even fresh meat all side by side.
Another feature of the Portuguese heritage in Macao.
This is Macau Tower standing at 350+ metres above sea level. There are two viewing decks and restaurants up there. Also, it is possible to take a skywalk around the outside of the tower and also bungy jump from the tower (but I wouldn't do it!)
Its an interesting walk from one end of Lamma Island to the other. Thank you.
The zig Zag railway company does run Thomas the Tank Engine specials during school holidays, I'm not sure if this is the one they use or a separate one altogether, with eyes and all!
