7 Things to Do in Macau – A city of entertainment

Macau is a melting pot of cultures situates just 62 kilometres away from Hong Kong and is known as the Vegas of Asia. For those visiting the place for the first and clueless about what lies out there on the buzzing streets, here are a few things that you can try out.

1

A bit of Venice in the east

If you've never been to Venice and yet would like to have a Venetian experience, it is possible on your trip to Macau! There is a hotel in Macau that has done quite an amazing job at recreating a Venetian experience here in Asia. The place houses an entire shopping mall complete with cobblestone streets and a canal offering gondola rides through the complex. There are shops that cater to those who are on the lookout for high-end brands as well as normal sportswear and casual clothes shops. Fine dining restaurants are available too. The feel of Renaissance is strong in the air with detailed architecture too.

A show at anytime

Living up to its nickname as the Vegas of Asia, Macau really does offer more than just malls and casinos. The city of Macau goes a step further with performances you can watch at any time. Operas, magic shows, dance performances and the list goes on. Remember to keep your eyes peeled anywhere you go as even the waters in the pond can begin a dance, so be sure not to miss out on a single exciting thing in this wonderful city!

Visit Senado Square

This is the most popular public place in Macau where the streets and walkways are decorated in line with the festival that is being celebrated during that season or month. There are plenty of shops here that are popular among both locals and tourists. Enjoy a street snack and taste some of the most delicious local food. This is the place to find your souvenirs too. The place is great for some artistic photographs as well, so don't forget the camera on your visit here.

A-Ma Temple

This is a temple that is located in the midst of a busy city, just a 40-minute drive away from hotels like Hotel Okura Macau. Nonetheless, the temple has not lost its serenity one bit. This old place of worship was built to honour the goddess Matzu said to be the goddess of seafarers. That would come as no surprise as Macau is a port city after all. There are plenty of pavilions and figures that you might like to observe here.

Casa Do Mandarim

This is an archaic house that once belonged to a scholar from the Qing dynasty, Zheng Guanying. It is a free historic site today for visitors to checkout. It's almost as though you are stepping back in time as you enter. The inside of the house is just as it used to be centuries ago, the furniture is left literally untouched giving those interested in culture and history a really great experience. The place is also quiet and soothing to the mind with just the sounds of birds and water flowing. If you are at one of the Macau hotels, a 5-star close by, do visit the site.
