During my recent 4D/3N trip to Macau, I took a few hundred photos with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 camera kindly provided (on loan) by our sponsors. My favourite photo is this one of a night scene of the Ponte De Sai Van or Sai Van Bridge, one of 3 bridges linking Macau to Taipa Island. It was taken from the waterfront at the outdoor plaza of the famous Macau Tower. We were there to enjoy the beautiful fireworks display by teams from Korea and Thailand, two of the 10 countries taking part in the 24th Macau International Fireworks Display Contest. This was one of the highlights of our itinerary.
Earlier, our team was given a tour of this tower and hosted to a sumptuous buffet dinner at the 360° Cafe at the top of the Tower. We were briefed on the array of activities visitors could enjoy such as the Bungy-jumping, Skywalk X and Mast Climb. We also enjoyed the panoramic view from the observation deck. What a glorious experience it was to enjoy dinner and savour the fantastic view of the surrounding from 223 metres above the ground.
Finally, here are some photos that I took of the grand finale of our first day at Macau; the fantastic fireworks display choreographed to beautiful music. I should apologize because my poor photographic skill did not do justice to the Panasonic GF5.
