A Weekend in Coloane

IMG_5516

Visiting Coloane was not high in my list, if it was not for E's insistence to spend a day in the area, I might missed the serenity of the southern-most part of Macau in my (wrongly held) belief that it has nothing to offer. 

Coloane is a gorgeous location, with many colours and beautiful locations that practically scream for your attention, especially in front of the Church of Francis Xavier. It also houses the Lord Stow's bakery, with their must-try Portuguese Egg Tart, which are really yummy for just 9 MOP each! (edit: at the time I was back in Macau, the inflation took control and I found myself in disbelief, after seeing the new price of 10 MOP per piece).

We climb to the Alto de Coloane (meaning we ride the free shuttle bus). On top of this hill, there is this replica of some old palace from whichever dynasty in China. A really beautiful place, yet devoid of tourists (which was basically the feeling I got from travelling around Coloane).

All in all, I really enjoyed my time in Coloane, and I wish we spent more time here. Unfortunately, the summer sun and the heat brought premature end to our excursion, forcing us to stopped several times to rehydrate ourselves, even umbrella didn't help.
