Hong Kong Trip Day 6 – Rounding up Macao and Returning to HK

On day 6 of our Hong Kong trip, we finally conquered the elusive Guia Lighthouse and Guia Fortress in Macao!

Although it was a challenge for both Kate and I (absolutely not for the faint of hearts!), it was also absolutely rewarding to enjoy the views at the top and to finally have visited one of the major attractions of the Historical Centre of Macao.

After returning to Hong Kong in the afternoon, we headed to our next rest stop – Ah Shan Hostel. Another no-frills hostel, the room came with attached bathroom, TV as well as a bed, sufficient for the both of us.

Suffice to say that we were thoroughly satisfied without burning any holes in our pockets! To round up the evening, we headed for more shopping at Ladies Street – a night market selling clothes, bags, toys and souvenirs…
