South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR), the Philippines’ premier leisure airline will be offering fares for as low as P1,099 for Clark to Macau until July 20, 2011 for travel on August 1 until March 31, 2012.
The peninsula of Macau lies on the southeast portion of Mainland China and has a mild subtropical climate. On its streets can be found both modern and well-preserved ancient baroque churches, dating back to its days as a Portuguese colony, as well as stylish Art Deco buildings comparable to those found in Hong Kong, and a unique system of suburban Chinese temples. At the heart of Macau is the Historic Center, a UNESCO World Heritage site, consisting of over 20 landmarks, including the iconic Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The annual Macau International Fireworks Display Contest will be held on September 10, 12, 17, 24 and October 1, 2011, when the season transitions from summer to autumn. The event is a showcase of Macau’s major handicraft, fireworks, which originated in China and used to mark important festivities such as the Mid-Autumn or Moon Macau Festival (September 12), Macau New Year (January 1), and Chinese New Year (January 23).
With its distinctive multicultural legacy and modern developments, Macau has something for every vacationer, whether one prefers sampling Portuguese delicacies like caldo verde (potato and greens in soup) and bacalhau (salt cod) in Taipa village, getting acquainted with the giant statues of Matsu, Goddess of the Sea, and Kun Iam, Goddess of Mercy, or simply admiring the view atop the Macau Tower.
SEAIR also announced it achieved 89% on-time performance for its Airbus flights for the first half of 2011, with a peak season on-time performance of 94% for April and 92% for May. SEAIR uses the 144-seater Airbus 319 aircraft for its flights from Clark to Macau, Hong Kong, and Singapore. A flight is considered on-time if it arrives or departs not more than 15 minutes from the published time of departure or arrival.
