Visit Macau during Your Holiday -"Vegas of China"

As a popular day trip option for vacationers in Hong Kong, travelling to Macau is a must for visitors exploring the tourist hotspots in and around Hong Kong Island.

  1. Transport Options
    Those who are hoping to travel from the Hong Kong mainland to Macau must first sort out the means by which they will reach the casino hotspot. The main mode of transport is of course by ferry and there are several options at one's disposal. The China Ferry Terminal at Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the popular options available to visitors as the terminal is located 1km from the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry. Travellers can reach the terminal by hopping a taxi to 33, Canton Road or by walking across the Harbour City Mall. The Sky Pier is an option available to visitors who are in transit at the Hong Kong International Airport who wish to bypass the mainland and head straight to Macau while the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal located at the Shun Tak Center close to the IFC Towers is another ferry terminal that carries passengers to Macau. For return trips, visitors should make bookings at the Cotai Terminal or the Macau Maritime Ferry Terminal.

  2. Make Reservations
    As in any holiday planning endeavour, learning about Macau and its travel possibilities can help visitors not only get started on the right footing but also give them a sense of the destination they are visiting and make decisions down the line that are much more effortless. Located a mere hour away from the main Hong Kong island, Macau is often called the Monte Carlo of Asia due to a large number of integrated casinos that dot its landscape. A charming playground for adults and an entertainment powerhouse, Macau is Hong Kong's recreational hotspot. Note that you will require your passport to cross over to Macau from Hong Kong so having your travel documents on hand is crucial.
    Next look into Macau accommodation options if you are hoping to stay overnight. Those who are heading to Macau can stay at Ascott Macau or a similar conveniently placed accommodation that offer easy access to the attractions of the city.

  3. Casino Route
    Regarded the largest gambling resort epicenter on the planet no trip to Macau would be complete without playing one's hand at the mammoth casinos occupying the majority of the landscape. Hop to the globe's ten most expansive casinos and integrated resorts; the choices are endless. Note that gambling and placing high stake bets are not all that's on offer at Macau's prestigious casinos. The venues are also recreational and entertainment powerhouses with international acts, live shows, concerts and theatre spectacles and dining venues. Look into casinos hosting events that appeal to your personal tastes and plan to visit at least several of the big casinos in Macau for Instagram worthy moments.

  4. Historic Points of Interest
    As a former colonial stronghold, Macau is also littered with historical points of interest which include San Ma Lo and the Monte Fortress which dates back to 1627. Senado Square is another must-visit highlight while visitors must also make plans to walk along the cobbled stoned roads of Macau with historic, multi coloured buildings on either side.

  5. Nightclubs, Pub, Bars and Lounges
    The city is awash with entertainment destinations to suit almost everyone and all types of budgets. There are posh and expensive venues with the latest in décor, lighting and sound to the more casual places. Many of these clubs and night clubs also offer an eclectic selection of music from internationally renowned DJs and musicians to dance the night away or to simply listen to.
