The Fisherman's Wharf in Macau
Check out this cool slideshow feature that takes just minutes to create on Tripadvisor. I love this...you'll be seeing more of this type of presentations on my travel-i-tales, I can tell you.
Sometimes, photo-sharing in the form of a video is more exciting, and makes the places come to life, so to speak. This is my first video using TripWow...tell me what you think of it.
The Fisherman's Wharf is a theme park in Macau, located on Avenida da Amizade e Avenida Dr Sun Yat Sen, just across the Sands Casino.It was opened to the public in 2006. The theme park has an interesting mix of architecture; you can find a group of Chinese Tang Dynasty towers facing a Tibetan palace, behind which there is a man-made volcano. There are also a Roman-themed shopping centre and an outdoor Colosseum which is actually meant to be a concert-venue, among other attractions.It must have been off-peak season when we visited it, as there was no activity going on, and only a few shops were open. The park, however, is worth visiting even with the absence of rides, and even if only for the pleasure of admiring the architecture. Admission is free.
