Macau's night view was spectacular - Macau's Open Top Bus Night Tour

It was a travel in October 2017.

There are many cities famous for night scenery. Cool skyline is like jewels. Macau is such cities. There are different things to Macau than such a city. Most of the cities whose buildings are used as offices are the main characters of night views. However, a hotel with a high building is the main character in Macau. Recently, Macau has growing number of hotels. Along with the famous and splendid existing hotels, big and small hotels are under construction in Macau, featuring their own characteristics. There are also many hotels that have already finished. On my recent Macau trip, I saw MGM Cotai waiting to start business. The hotel looked very pretty and jewel box. The best way to enjoy the spectacular view of Macau is to use " Macau Open Tour Bus Night Tour. " This course is cheap and can take advantage of the 2nd floor buses. I sat still on the bus. The bus moved comfortably from Pawnshops Street to Cotai strip. Visitors can watch the night view.


There are no seats on the first floor, and there are only seats on the second floor.

I got on the bus. There was only a seat on the second floor of the bus. The first floor did not exist at all. When there was a large number of people participating in the Macau Open Bus Night Tour, the buses seemed to run two.

Starting at Macau Outer terminal.

The guide speak in English. The English skill of the guide is very good, so there is no need to worry about people who are convenient in English. The recorded description of a different language for various tourists was broadcast on the bus. But I was very uncomfortable with this part. The only reason was simply to play a recorded explanation. For example, I passed the Macau Tower, but I heard a different explanation. This is because it just played repeatedly. In other words, there was no match between where the bus was passing and the recorded explanation.

Whenever you arrive at a certain place, you will hear the announcement of the accompanying Guide. There was not much explanation. It's just, " This is OOO. This is OO. " with a brief explanation. If you are not talking to a guide in private, you shouldn't feel obligated to participate in the Macau's Open Top Bus Night Tour, even if you are poor at English.

And there was something more uncomfortable than explanation. On this day, about 15 Japanese tourists were on board. They screamed whenever the bus passed through a certain place. And they made a loud noise. Their screams made it very difficult for me to listen to guide and explanation. Moreover, it was impossible even to communicate with my parents and me. I understood the pleasure of their tours, but to me, they were the worst.

There was space for the bus stop in front of Wynn Macau. All of the passengers watched a small fountain show. Then the bus moved again.

Grand Lisboa is a landmark in Macau. My father calls Grand Lisboa like this. " Stanley's pride. "

You can have Phototime on the tour bus.

The Macau Open Top Bus Night Tour offers a brief stop for taking photos. Buses do not just pass several places. If the bus stops for a while, the guide says, " Stop waiting for a moment. Take a picture. "

I was pleased with this consideration. If an object moves quickly even in the middle of the daytime, which is full of light, It's hard to take a picture. Night without light is more difficult to take picture. So, I could take picture conveniently if bus stop so short.
