On our third day (or second official 'full' day), we went on a day tour to Macau, and if I could sum up the entire day in one sentence, it would probably be along the lines of "toiling through immense heat while trying to snap as many photos as possible."
Well, at least, that's how it felt for me.
I'm pretty sure I was ->thisclose<- to getting a heat stroke that day. No joke.
Quite frankly, the day had been much too hot for a tour that involved walking for more than 5 minutes outside, but as we wanted to avoid as many other tourists as possible, we had chosen to go on our second day in HK.
After a quick breakfast, we boarded the ferry to Macau.
And seriously, you would not believe that amount of luggage-tolling Mainlanders there were at the ferry terminal. Not only did they clog up the main pathways with their ginormous bags, but they also made no attempts at unblocking your path when you politely asked them to move aside. A couple little monsters even shoved us aside while we made several desperate attempts to enter the gate to avoid missing our ferry.
Despite the safety posters plastered all over the inside of the ferry and the safety precautions video playing on the monitors at the front, the Mainlanders on the boat completely ignored the "Fasten your seatbelt" and "Stay seated while the boat is in motion" signs and instead all crowded near the windows to take photos. I don't think I've ever seen such an uncivilized mess of people in my life.
