A Day Trip to Macau, China - 16th August 2001

Another away-day from the base in Stanley, just outside Hong Kong, takes DH and Nosher on the TurboJet catamaran to Macau. Macau was occupied by the Portuguese some 400 years ago, and retains much of its Mediteranean feel making it a very different place to the heaving Hong Kong. Like HK, it was handed back to China in 1999.
