Things to do in Macau

Casinos may be the main attraction in Macau but there are a lot of other things you can do in this former Portuguese colony besides throwing a dice or shuffling a card.

Here's a list of things to do while you're in Macau:

Taste an explosion of international flavor on Taipa Island's Rua da Cunha (Food Street). Food in Macao restaurants is a fusion of the creations and experiments of a voyaging community, so there is adventure for the palate! On Food Street, feast on a blend of Portugese, Macanese, Indian, Chinese and African cuisines.

Enjoy a night at the races
If you love excitement, spend a night at the races. The Canindrome, Asia's only greyhound racing complex, is open in the evening, as is the Macau Jockey Club for horse racing. Another Macau racing attraction is the Grand Prix Museum.

Take a historic walking tour
The streetscapes and squares of Macau's city center provide linkage to over twenty historical and architectural sites, including the A-Ma Temple, Moorish Barracks, Mandarin's House, St. Joseph's Seminary, Dom Pedro V Theatre, the Ruin's of St. Paul's, the Guia Fortress, Na Tcha Temple, the Cathedral and Mount Fortress. Relax and people watch at a Macanese coffeehouse, and don't forget to try the egg tarts!

Shop 'til you drop at Senado Square
Avenida Almeida Ribeiro, off Senado Square, is a popular Macau attraction for shopping, featuring everything from luxury boutiques to traditional Chinese delicacies like dried sharks' fin and abalone. Follow Rua Nossa Senhora do Amparo to Rua da Tercena, where you will find the original artisan section of Macao. Enjoy watching craftsmen carve camphorwood chests and family shrines, or printing gold and red paper wrappings on hand-cranked presses.

Ride a cable car to a lighthouse
During daylight, visit the highest point in Macau, Guia Hill, on which stands the Guia Fort and Lighthouse. Take a round-trip cable car ride up to the fort, enjoying some of the best views on the island. While there, stroll through Flora Garden, which contains an aviary and small zoo.

Whisk to the top of Macau Tower
Ascend to the observation deck with its breathtaking views, or eat at the 360 Café, Macau Tower's revolving restaurant. Brave the hair-raising AJ Hackett Skywalk, or enjoy a 70-meter Flying Fox cable ride. Kids will love the bungee trampoline, the pirate ship, and the hand-painted grand carousel.

See the world at Fisherman's Wharf
The newest of Macau attractions, Fisherman's Wharf is a themed park, divided into different port towns. One can escape to Cape Town, Amsterdam or the Italian Riviera in the same evening. The kids will love the active volcano, children's fort, and Roman amphitheater. The Dynasty Wharf replicates the time of the Tang Dynasty, offering tranquil Chinese kiosks and tea parlors.
