Top Things to Do in Macau
Located very close to Hong Kong, only 62 kilometres away, or one hour by ferry, Macau which is also known as the Vegas of the East. Here are some of the top things to do in Macau for tourists.
Try your luck at the Casinos: Earning it its rightful title as the Vegas of the East, Macau can boast of a number of casinos. These casinos are beautifully built and when they are lit up at night, they make a sight to behold. Most of the casinos are located within hotels. When visiting the casinos, one can enjoy the hotels and their restaurants as well. The Grand Lisboa, Galaxy and The Venetian Casino are amongst the most famous. The casinos are such a highlight that most hotels provide transport services to transport tourists from Macau Maritime Terminal and Taipa Temporary Ferry Terminal and Macau International Airport to these hotels. If you visit Macau, trying your luck in these casinos is an absolute must do.
Visit the Senado Square: Senado Square is a town square of Macau, which sports a Portuguese character from the days that it was a Portuguese colony. It used to be an important civil and political area, however, now it is a tourist attraction. In fact, UNESCO now lists it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site ‘Historic Centre of Macau’. This town square is a bustling place with shops, restaurants, cafes and throngs of tourists. It is the most perfect place in all of Macau to relax shop, stroll, click photographs and simply take in Macau in all its erstwhile Portuguese glory. The architecture is quintessentially Portuguese and there are several iconic buildings around Senado Square like the St. Dominic's Church that make for great tourist attractions as well.
Stroll through Taipa Village: Very close but contrary to the Casino hubs of Macau called ‘The Cotai Strip’, is Taipa village. Sporting a stark contrast from the fast paced modern day life of the rest of the city; Taipa village is a quaint, culturally rich, ancient village. Here one can find a joyous amalgamation of churches, museums and Chinese temples, beautifully weaving the Chinese and Portuguese cultures. The cobbled streets and narrow alleys are dotted with small Chinese shops, cafes, temples, Portuguese style buildings and bakeries where one can relax, window shop, walk around the streets and experience Macau in its serene and resplendent avatar.
One of the major highlights is the ‘The Venetian Macau’, which is a replica of canals, quaint bridges and gondola rides, modelled much like the city of Venice. Macau has so much to offer that it will not be fair to call it only a casino city. It is a happy blend of Chinese and Portuguese cultures, modern and traditional life and natural and manmade beauties and is a gorgeous place to plan your next holiday to!

Kasturi's 5 days trip to MacauThank you so much Travel Triangle for putting together such a wonderful trip. The vehicle and meals were all good. The best part of the trip was the tour guides they were too good. They kept our schedule exactly how we asked. Very well organized. Many more trips to go
Gauri's 8 days trip to MacauThank you so much for the arrangements made by travel triangle. We had an amazing trip. Everything went according to the itinerary. We did not have to face any difficulty and very much satisfied with the services provided by travel triangle. There was a difficulty before departure, the ferry bookings were made incorrectly by our spoc. This is very sad to write but, he did not correct it nor he had a courtesy to call the us and ask whether it is rectified or not. And most importantly, i would like to thank Bijay Kushwaha for the quick support by him. I had contacted him at 11PM regarding the ferry tickets issue. And the very next day he corrected my ferry tickets and sent me the updated tickets. And even he told that we can contact him anytime if any issue is there throughout my journey. This is the support customers need, when making the bookings from travel agency. We had even contacted customer care and whats app group regarding the same issue. But we were told that they can fix this in official hours. When we did not know whether our issue will get resolved or not, as we were supposed to fly within 10-11 hours. We really appreciate Bijay for helping us.

Shobhik's 4 days trip to MacauThank You ! The trip was amazing, i loved everything, the cities, the tours, the food, the people, . HongKong & Macau are a cities to go on vacations. Our travel advisor (Manideepa) listened to our interests and then developed an itinerary that matched. The travel company i.e DESI YATRA (ASTHA) was exceptional, they took care of everything (hotels, transportation, tours, food). They were very quick answering emails and recommending all the tours and hotel options. I just told them what kind of locations i wanted to visit and they prepared the perfect itinerary for me :) I was traveling with my friend and i was looking for a travel company that could help me with everything, and they did! Everything was taken care of us, which made our international trip go smoother than we could have ever hoped. Thank You HongKong & Macau! Thank You Travel Triangle!
Shruthiramdas's 4 days trip to MacauOverall we had a wonderful time ,but slight changes should have been there like,spa body massage could be on the last day of our trip,garuda statuue visit should have been included,ubud tour was not that great ,kintamani place was exotic and water sports was fun.
