We find ourselves a cute little hotel in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong for a reasonable price. Our room even has a view of the harbour.
The next day it's off to Macau to meet Gladys, a friend we met in Brazil. She works in one of the casinos there. She meets us at the ferry terminal and then takes us for Yum Cha (Dim Sum) at her casino, a tour of the old colonial Portuguese area, and then off to a restaurant for a hotpot. The hotpot are two boiling pans of soup where you dip and cook thinly sliced pieces of meat and seafood. We are joined by her two companions we also met in Brazil.
We go for a night drive and get some great views of the harbours and bridges that span the various islands. Our last stop is the Venetian Casino, a copy of the Venetian in Los Vegas. Very impressive and lavish in an artifical way.
Last day and I find a tailor on Nathan street for some bespoke business shirts.
Back to the airport.
