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!

Trip to MacauThe trip was well organised...only thing was that after booking the quotation was changed...in macau ..the driver was a bit late to pick up us from the hotel..n before leaving no one could clearly say how to get into the ferry from the airport without luggage collection...anyway it was easy in the airport... It was a memorable trip...the best day was at disneyland...my kid had an amazing time....
Trip to Macauexcellent We went for a trip to Hong Kong / Macau through Sharing travels. It was very well planned and coordinated Trip. They connected us to their local partners which made travel very smooth. Akshay from the Sharing Travels team was very helpful and quick to respond, I am so thankful to him that he made us feel so comfortable all through our trip. Regards Gopikrishnan
Trip to MacauThe whole trip went off very smoothly. The Macau property was amazing. The Hong Kong property was just average the room was too small for 4 persons. The food options for Vegetarians was very limited that needs to be improved. You need at least three or four filling options apart from the regular bread and fruits. Macau stay was very very good.
Trip to MacauNot Communicated about exess of luggage in freey transportation,and we paid for it, and missed the water show in Venetian (Macau) this also not communicated
Trip to MacauFlight ..spice Jet is not good, Venetian stay is must in Macau, ,bshould be in basic package
Trip to MacauThe hotel in Macau was very wonderful and good, but free shuttle bus has dropped us another place near Westwood hotel which was very far from origin place. Hong Kong hotel Harbour plaza north point is good but rooms was very cozy not suitable for family. Plz don't give this type of room to family tourist. Overall it was good managed tour, tourist place, no issue. The pick up from hotel on 15.6.19 in the early morning was shared, why? Travel Triangle has make good tour, but the Hong Kong agency was less cooperative. Best memory in our trip is Disneyland, Macau hotel the parisian, hong Kong city etc
Trip to MacauThe trip itinerary was good but the trip pre-arrangements were not satisfactory and support was minimal. Initially my trip was to Hong Kong but due to my PAR rejection the support was not up to mark for the alternatives or options. The flights were booked by my side as suggested by TT representative and I suffered a loss of 24K for flight cancellation. Another loss of 16K I suffered for Hong Kong and Macau hotel bookings cancellation but I did not get any visibility for the cancellation charges as per contractual terms. The invoicing transparency to customers is making me doubt where my money is being put in and how much refund did I get. A total loss of 40K I have suffered for which I have not got any consolations and did not get recorded anywhere. The flight from Delhi left too late at 3am in the morning which wasted the half day trip as I reached Bali late night. I am not sure whether I can recommend Travel Triangle to my peer group for planning any holidays. Hoping management of TT pays some heed to my testimonial.
Trip to MacauNice arrangements, agents in Hongkong and Macau were nice. Macau Hotel was excellent. Hongkong Hotel was just OK. Time management was good.
Trip to MacauWe booked a package tour of hong kong and macau for 5 days with Travel triange/Timeless trips. We had booked our own flight and had let TT handle ground transportation and hotel booking. It was a smooth experience. The local agency handling transport is very efficient particularly in HK Mr Sunny is 9/10 on time and courteous. Couple of things for TT and Mr Sunny as feedback. Macau -> HK ferry, they charged baggage fees for checkedin luggage @25$/piece. This was not known earlier. For Mr Sunny - On the HK evening tour day, we had asked to be dropped at the ladies market but the driver dropped us at night market and said ladies market is a short walk from there whereas it is absolutely not the case. This was horrible. Rest was smooth. Sheraton at Macau was very good. We recommend it . HBPlaza 8 degrees is also good though space is small but thats true of all hotels in HK. The location has small shops so its convenient for buying stuff for kids etc. BTW we had taken 2 days for Disney and Ocean park tours. Both were good.
Trip to MacauWe traveled to Honkong Macau for a 6 day trip in April 2019 and it was a well arranged trip. Before departure, multiple times we were contacted by travel triangle team, who explained the itenary to us for clarity. The quote was also very competitive. before departure, a whattsapp group was created to support 24x7 and even they enquired requlary during our Honkong stay. I had previously also booked Singapore and Thailad through different operators, but Travel triangle is the the most professional team.They have a huge team to assist you at different stages. I strongly recommend them and appreciate their professional service.
