    Macau...I'm a passionate person who have desire to visit the historical places, especially if in fact that Macau have been recognized as the  world heritage site.

    Last year I went to a secluded spot in Indonesia, in Sangiran Village and lulled enjoyed learning about early humans. I didn't realize that all  team  are getting ready to leave for another place. In the endthey find me enjoying  time  to learned about human life in ancient times.

    Why I realy  passionate want to visit Macau? 

    Macau is quite familiar to our  company, therefore my headquarters of our  company decide to choose Macau became the travel destination at the end of 2013.  It's not a hard decision for all employees when they are confronted to the 3 options of country in Asia for visited. When they heared about Macau, they get one voice.  (unfortunately at that time I had not joined in the headquarters of my office, so I did not participate in the tour)

    Macau are located about 60 kilometres to the west of Hongkong and comprises Macau Peninsula, Taipa and Coloane in the newly developed district known as Cotai. In the mid 16th Century, the Portuguese arrived and settled in Macau, therefore the architecture of the city, art, culinary, traditions, religion, and the community reflect the integration of Chinese , western, and Portuguess cultures. 

    In 2005, The Historic Center of Macau has been inscribed as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.   Currently, Macau  positioning it self as the The World Center of Tourism and Leisure as it develops into a quality international touris destination. 

    How to get Macau? 

    If you flight depart from Jakarta , Soekarno International Airport you need to transit in Singapore or Kualalumpur. There are some airlines you can choose  to get Macau, such as ;Airasia, Tiger Singapore, etc. 

    Last year my company choose the transit flight which is transit in Singapore and they spend their time about 8 hours to explore Singapore before go back to the airport for connecting flight depart  from Singapore (SIN) to Macau (MHM). 

    For Indonesian people, I think,  transportation cost is not too expensive for connecting flight category (start from Rp 930,000). But if you go to Macau on  peak season, of course you may get the expensive price. Just take a look a good time traveling to Macau and find the promo or cheap flights everyday, you will get the best price.

    ..now, What interest place that  I want to visit in Macau?
