Visiting Macau: Halal Indian Kitchen and The Quaint Villa de Coloane
I went there on the third day, 14 October. At about 11 in the morning, I decided to have my brunch at the halal Indian Kitchen near Taipa Garden before going to Coloane. The people in the restaurant told me to get a no.25 Bus to a cultural village but I ended up listening to another local girl telling me confidently to take a no.26X bus which actually didn't go there. I might had misheard no 26A (which was the right one) with no 26X but both buses passed by my hotel. I got down and took a taxi from the 4 Season Hotel nearby which then charged me more for detouring to another place of interest that is Villa de Coloane. I didn't like the idea of walking up the highest point in Coloane to see the Lady Statue. The cost by bus was only MOP4.20 whereas by taxi, it was 10x more. RM1 is about MOP2.2. Actually, it is very easy to take a bus to go anywhere in Taipa just by looking at bus numbers on the map. Unfortunately on that day, the bus driver couldn't understand English and I couldn't ask him anything. In fact, he didn't ask me to pay for the bus fare but I just put the fare into the slot before getting down the bus.
