Behind the flashing neon lights and on the top of the casinos of Macau, facing the city stands the Kun Iam Statue. It is part of the Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre which is located on the artificial island which connects to the Av Dr Sun Yat Sen, Nape through the causeway which is 60 meter long. The total height of the island is about 32 meters. The Kun Iam statue which stands in the center looking at the Macau city symbolizes that it is there to protect the city and the people living there. The Kun Iam statue is about 20 meters high and it is made with about 50 bronze castings which weigh to 50 tons.

      Thanks Traveltriangle for planning a nice trip for my brother. Hotels and other services provided were also very good. Although last minute cancellation for Macau Beach tour/buggy ride without any proper justification was quite disappointing, alternative was also provided after doing follow-up. The itinerary which was cancelled costed more and a less expensive ones were offered against cancellation.

      Overall a good experience from Holiday Tringle. About local travel agent, they need to change attitude from handling indian tourists to global tourists. There was less regard to timing and i had to complaint to holiday triengle. After that, things went fine. Overall, car quality was good. Drivers were good but we found rough attitude from couple of drivers and i had to pass my experience through other driver. I spoke to their manager mr. Sunny once and he sounded blaming me for complaining, i had to be tough with him. His attitude was like ' aisa to chalta raheta he'. For people like me who has travelled the world for last 26 years, i can not accept such behaviour. But after my complaint to holiday triangle, i got immediate response and things went fine. I am happy with service from Holiday Triengle.

      The cab driver's behaviour was rude during the first day visit at Hong Kong. Overall trip was good with luxurious hotels but difficult for vegetarians to find an Indian restaurant esp in Macau. Return transfer from Hong Kong hotel to Hong Kong Airport terminal 1 should be included in the itenary.

      Regarding the Hong Kong trip except the hotel , everything was well managed . The hotel room was very cosy and they used to charge for a cup of milk. Room was not equipped with microwave. The good part was it is very close to metro and other departmental store and one Indian restaurant Tulsi was 5 mins walk.The hotel breakfast was very basic and almost the same menu for 4 days
