Foto Friday: Macau Marketplace

Foto Friday: Macau Marketplace

Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels.

This week’s photo is of the bustling marketplace in Senado Square, Macau.

Macau is said to be the most densely populated region in the world. During my first visit, I wasn’t convinced and I felt that Hong Kong was the more crowded of the SARs. But after a second visit, suddenly Macau seemed crowded. The streets were filled with people and difficult to navigate.

The marketplace was bustling and lively. Street vendors stood outside their shops yelling and offer samples of their goods. Even if you wanted to stop to grab a sample, sometimes the flow of people made it impossible. This was a new side of Macau for me, but in a good way.


If you enjoyed this photo, please share it!

    Looks like a fun place to get lost! I’m actually heading over to Macau at the end of summer, so it’s nice to know that there’s more out there than just casinos. ;)

      Macau is a really fun place, especially away from all the casinos!
      How long are you planning to stay there? If you’re there a few days, of course it’s always fun to pop over to HK for a days visit as well :)
