gosh :s31: My elderly relatives are tagging along ..wonder if they can take it. Looks like I got to moniter the PSI index in hk.:s11: So I guess its less picturesque as before.

Monitor no use, there's nothing you can do. Can only hope for strong wind or rain to reduce the smog. Bad days when looking across Victoria harbour can hardly see buildings the other side.

any recommendation for hotel in Macau?

Stayed at Sintra Hotel earlier this month. Good location as it's short walk to Grand Lisboa, Wynn's and MGM Grand, Senado Square. Can easily get food around. There isn't a casino in the hotel so it's less crowded. Price is quite reasonable. Room and bathroom are clean. Decent service from the bellshop and room service. They ask for MOP or HK$500 deposit when checking in.

I just went to Macau. I can recommend you some hotel or the hotel i am staying at. you can take a look at Metropark hotel. The location of the hotel is okie. I would say its quite a convenient location and room are quite nice. they also provided 1/2 hrly buses to the ferry terminal. I book it ard 130 per nite with UOB travel planner

If you are looking for a casino hotel, Casa Real looks not bad too. I actually wanted to book Casa Real but it fully book. The location is just mins walk away from the ferry terminal to HK and location is convenient. If i din rememeber wrongly it should cost around 115 per nite.

Anyway, Macau is a very small place, you can almost walk to anywhere, else from Metropark hotel..:) U can even walk to the ferry terminal from metropark hotel as its abt a 15-20 min slow walk, 5 mins bus jorney.
