Just a one hour ferry ride from Shenzhen to get to Macau (aka China's Las Vegas).
Macau is known for its casinos. They are pretty out of this world. The first casino is the Lisboa (the oldest casino in Macau..I think?) The second is the Venetian. It feels like another city inside, complete with an indoor river!
Strolling around the city and taking it all in. Definitely a different flavor than Mainland China! Such a spectacular contrast of the old and new.
Before enjoying some delicious authentic Portuguese cuisine, we stopped at a tavern for some beer. The woman with Professor Xu and me is their former colleague who now teaches Chinese at UVA.
Amazing meal! Clean plate club woop woop!
View from my professors' apartment on the University of Macau campus. What a gorgeous campus!
My name is Allie or 何爱俐, and I am enjoying my fifth year of living in China.
