Non Gambling Related Things to do in Macau - Outside of Casinos Only

Being the Las Vegas of Asia, Macau has a lot of things for you to do that are not at all gambling-related. Here are some of the best of the lot for you!


Explore the Senado square

Known to be one of the most photographed and captivating areas of this part of the world, the Senado Square is a town square unlike any other one found in Asia. Reeking of European influences, the place has a charm of its own with the paved stone floors and conventional Portuguese architecture which is one of the main highlights of this town centre. You will also find a beautiful water fountain occupying the centre which will remind you of the colonial past of Macau. Senado Square is also a UNESCO World Heritage site home to amazing Spanish style buildings which you can explore after. The area is also close to many Macau five star hotels the likes of Hotel Okura Macau.


Try the local food

The food here is a dream come true as Macau has its share of local speciality dishes that are found nowhere else in Asia or even Hongkong. Because of its colonial past and multicultural heritage, Macau has a cuisine that is a blend of many kinds of international cuisines. The must-try items when you are in this part of the world are crab, egg tarts and Durian ice cream. A favourite takeaway souvenir that people love to shop for in Macau is the almond cookies found here.


Go to the Macau Tower

If you want the best kind of views of the town you must definitely visit the Macau tower and take in the view from the top. Towering about the landscape in the area this Tower is about 314 metres tall and is the highlight of all the tourist attractions here. This place is also the second tallest bungee jumping experience in the world. You can jump from a height of 233 metres. The Macau Tower is home to a revolving restaurant in which you can get panoramic views of the city from every angle during your meal.


Take a look around the town square

The best way to explore any city is not by going around in a vehicle and stopping only at the cultural highlights, it is by exploring the area on foot. This is when you will get the actual experience as you will come across many locals going about their day. You can also just stop and walk into any restaurant, cafe or boutique store during your exploration of the town on foot. Keep aside an evening to do this; you could even do it alone if nobody else is interested in walking around the town of Macau with you.


Visit the Kun Iam statue

Standing tall at 20 metres in height, this statue is of the Goddess of Mercy. Yet another popular landmark in Macau this definitely should not be missed during your trip here. Crafted in bronze, the statue stands on a lotus flower and is also known to be The Guardian Angel of the area.
