Thrill-seekers go to Vegas. High rollers go to Monaco. But serious gamblers? They know it’s all about Macau. Why? Because mega-casinos, that’s why. Lights blink, slots beep and cheers rise from the roulette tables—bigger and better than anywhere else in the world. Are you feeling lucky? With all the sinful excitement, you might be surprised to know that Macau is also packed with churches, old fortresses and temples. The different areas of the city are called “parishes” instead of districts and are spread out over the mainland and the islands of Taipa and Coloane. Perhaps it’s the fusion of Portuguese and Chinese cultures that account for this mash-up of historic, religious and sinful attractions.
Or maybe it’s just a lucky coincidence resulting in a getaway you’re unlikely to forget. Either way, there’s no place in the world quite like here, so let our Macau holiday packages get your trip started. Stuff to Do
One thing every visitor should see is The Venetian. Even if you’re not a gambler, the largest casino in the world is a staple of holidays to Macau. If you’re looking for other kinds of thrills, throw yourself off the 233 metre Macau Tower—er, attached to a bungee cord, of course.
If your head is buzzing from all the excitement, take a walk. Literally. Stroll down the streets and soak up the mixture of old Chinese and Portuguese architecture. The Macau Museum is a great stop if you want to learn more. Nightlife
What’s there to do after dark? Gamble. We’re talking all day, every day gamble. And of course, everything that comes with a great bunch of casinos, like lots of shopping, amazing food and tons of big-production shows. You’ll be able to casino-hop with ease, since most of them are located on the Cotai Strip, AKA “The Las Vegas Strip of the East”. Many of our Macau packages include hotels right on the strip.
Guess what else the Macanese are into? Bowling. In fact, the Macau Dome is a world-class bowling centre. If you strike out at the casinos, try getting a few strikes here instead.
When you’re hungry, splurge for some Portuguese bacalhau (salted cod), Cantonese dim sum (dumplings) or the cultural fusion of pastéis de nata (egg tarts). Wash it all down with a Macau Beer or Portuguese wine at one of the bars or clubs on Avenida Sun Yat Sen. Where to Visit
While the mainland has most of the buzz and bustle, Taipa and Coloane have plenty to offer as well. Two beaches on the south side of Coloane, Hac Sa and Cheoc Van,are perfect for unwinding and taking a dip on Macau holidays. This island has a lot of ups and downs (it’s literally made of mountains), so a cycle or hike through the countryside could be just the adventure you need. If driving is more your style, hop in one of our Macau car hire options and visit Taipa Village, a small fishing village where you can enjoy a slower pace of life.
