5 Places to Watch the Macau Firework Show - Top Spots to Witness the Grandeur of this Magical Event

The Macau Firework Show is a spectacular event that many pyrotechnic teams from all over the world take part in. Read on and find about the top spots in the city that offer the best views for firework fans.


Macau Tower

Macau Tower is right where the action takes place, so if you can find yourself a seat here, you will certainly be lucky! From the vantage point of the Macau Tower, you will be able to gaze in awe as the vast spreads of the skies as they are enchantingly illuminated by the glorious fireworks. You can even book a buffet ticket at 360 Cafe to enjoy a perfect night of wining and dining while the colourful skies create a picture perfect backdrop for an exciting and romantic night!
The daredevils can opt to feast their eyes on the illuminating skies at the Macau Tower Skywalk which has a height of 233 metres. Keep in mind that you will have to book your spot online well in advance to avoid disappointment.


The Waterfront

Those who like to put their photography skills to the test during the firework display can head over to the Praia Grande and Nam Van Lake and clinch for themselves perfect viewing spots. The event takes place at the bottom of Macau Tower so these two locations are ideal to witness the surreal grandeur of the skies. The light of the fireworks is reflected in the water too so truly amazing shots can be taken here. You will have to arrive here early as the sites attract a large number of spectators.


Peninsula side

Perfect viewing spots are available in the Macau Peninsula for those who like to pay a little extra. There are many luxury hotels in Macau that offer dazzling views of the firework display. If you can get a window seat at the Italian restaurant on the Wynn Resort you surely will be very lucky! Another attractive alternative is the Chinese restaurant located in close proximity to the Wynn Resort which offers private rooms. These options will help you gaze at the glory of the fireworks without being constantly jostled by noisy crowds. Of course, these methods are costly. If you desire a cheaper option, you can choose to view the event at the fountain square in front of the Wynn.


Penha Hill

The Penha Hill on the Macau Peninsula is yet another favourite spot during the event. You will enjoy an unobstructed view of the night sky from this elevated point in the city. Large crowds gather here too so you will have to go there early to reserve your special spot. You can reach the Penha Hill in less than 10 minutes by car when you stay at Hotel Okura Macau.



Taipa is the island that is connected to Macau Peninsula by three bridges. The firework display can be seen from this island as well. You will be able to enjoy the show in peace as many people opt to flock to Macau for the event. But of course, the views will be smaller and you will also have to accept the inevitable sound delay of the fireworks.
