Where to go and do in Macau (Top 3 Best Spot)

08:06



Macau was one of the earliest European colonies in Asia and the last to be relinquished (1999) and thus has a more visible colonial history than Hong Kong. It's famous with its casino, hotels and malls. What I like most about macau is that you can going around from one spot to another spot using free shuttle bus from cassino, while taking the free water bottles too. (What a nice treat!)

Just like Hong Kong, you don't need any visa to enter this city. The most popular hotel in Macau when I was there is venetian hotel. The room is huge. Most of the time they offer special price, and I advice you to book into this hotel if that happened and your budget is permitted. 
Here is the top 3 Best spot in Macau:
  1. Ruin of saint's Paul. The most popular tourist spot of Macau. It is crowded with tourists and isn't that big, so you might only spend couple minutes here (maybe 1 hour or so). But you can enjoy the surrounding which is a popular tourist area too. You can visit Rua de S. Paulo (Dasanba) Street or Patio de Chon Sau to buy some souvenirs. Along the way, you can go to Senado Square and visit the iconic St. Dominic's Church. Don't forget to visit Monte Forte (Fortaleza do Monte) which is located beside the ruin.
  2. Macau Tower. You can do a lot of activities here and test your guts. The AJ Hackett Macau Tower Bungy Jump is 233m / 764ft high, making this jump a Guinness World Record for the Highest Commercial Bungy Jump in the world. Enjoy amazing 360° views from the level 58 Observation Lounge over a “Cafe on 4” coffee, and treat the kids to a tasty ice cream or a soft drink. Then take your Macau Tower experience up another level! A serious adrenaline rush awaits you on the level 61 Adventure Deck.
  3. Macau cassino. Gambling is Macau's biggest industry and busloads arrive daily from mainland China to try their luck. In addition, many Hong Kongers arrive on weekends with the same aim. For many years, the Casino Lisboa was the most famous and a landmark well known to people outside Macau, but it is being eclipsed by Sands Casino which opened in 2004. Nevertheless, the original Casino Lisboa is still worth a visit as its halls contain many original antiques on display from the private collection of gambling tycoon Stanley Ho.  Note: be sure to bring your passport /ID card since some officers would ask it when you try to enter casino. You can take any water bottle from casino for free.

HOW TO GET TO Macau FROM Hong Kong Island: Ferries from Hong Kong's Macau Ferry Terminal in Sheung Wan on Hong Kong Island operate 24 hours a day at frequencies of every 15-30 minutes by day and hourly at night. In Macau, they dock at the Macau Maritime Ferry Terminal. The cheapest one-way ticket from Hong Kong is HKD164 (HKD25 extra per bag for luggage, though 1 hand-carry size luggage within 20kg could be free depending on the company) and the trip takes one hour. 

Macau also is famous for excellent restaurants, unique cuisine and mellow bars. Above all, the city is famous for Macanese and Chinese cuisines.
