6 Unusual Things to Do in Macau – Offbeat Attractions for the Visitor

If you visit Macau you will find many interesting things to do, including more 'unusual' experiences such as watching pink dolphins, bungy jumping, viewing giant pandas, go-karting and more.


Watch pink dolphins

You will find that the area of sea between Hong Kong and Macau is home to some intriguing marine denizens; the pinkest dolphins to be found on the globe! These dolphins which belong to the Indo-Pacific humpback variety, happen to be indigenous to these waters, presenting an alluring sight with their distinctive rosy colour. You will have the opportunity to observe these marine mammals in their native environment on a private cruise which is sure to be a memorable experience for the whole family.


Take the highest bungy jump in the world

Thrill seekers will be able to experience the highest commercially available bungy jump in the world in Macau. You will be able to take your jump from a lofty platform located at the summit of Macau Tower at a height of 233 m from ground level. As you might expect, this jump will provide breathtaking freefall sensations that will delight adrenaline junkies. You will also have the chance to opt for activities such as the Skyjump and Skywalk at Macau Tower, that are slightly less intense but still exhilarating.


View giant pandas

Anybody who loves these endearing creatures should undoubtedly take the opportunity to visit the Macau Giant Panda Pavilion. Here, you will have the chance to view a pair of giant pandas, Xin Xin and Kai Kai. Giant pandas are highly endangered with small numbers surviving in the wild as well as zoos and breeding centres across the globe. You will see that the Macau Giant Panda Pavilion is a sophisticated establishment featuring an al fresco yard, indoor quarters and other facilities for caring for pandas.


Try go-karting

The well-known Macau Grand Prix which takes place in November is Macau's foremost sporting occasion. If this event inspires you to try out motor racing yourself, a good place to start would be at Macau Motorsports Club (Coloane Go Kart Track) where you could try go-karting; the 1.2 km length track found here is counted amongst Asia's most demanding tracks for this activity. An accommodation choice to consider from which you could easily visit this go-karting track would be Ascott Macau where you could stay at conveniently located Macau serviced apartments.


Take a cruise on a junk

In times past, Macau happened to be famed for its thriving fishing industry, with numerous ships and other fishing vessels being constructed in the local shipyards; these fishing vessels are known as junks. Visitors to Macau will be able to rent one of these crafts and take a cruise along the coast of the Macau Peninsula. One of these cruises will also be a great way to take in the sight of the city skyline at the time of sunset.


Visit Macau Tea Culture House

It is considered that Macau performed an important role in popularising the tea culture of China in the countries of the West. The Macau Tea Culture House happens to be the city's pioneering tea museum and you will be able to learn a great deal about traditional Chinese tea ceremonies here. You will also have the chance to enjoy free of charge tea tasting on weekends which will be a unique experience.
