Tourist Activities – Things to Do in Macau
Macau has been labelled as the Las Vegas of Asia with so many hotels and casinos built around the city. As a tourist who is planning to visit Macau for the first time, here are some activities you can do:
- Visit the Ruins of St. Paul’s
- Bungy Jump in the Macau Tower – currently the world’s highest platform to bungy jump
- Visit the Venetian Macao
- Stroll around Senado Square
- Watch Free Shows in the Casino Hotels
- Try Your luck in the Casinos like Grand Lisboa, Galaxy, The Venetian Casino, Wynn Casino
- Hop on a ferry to Hong Kong (this is another option to travel to HK in a few hours travel time from Macau)
Premium bus rides are free in Macau and you can take them to reach various destinations without having to pay for transport.
We have been to Macau before but it was because we made a side trip via Hong Kong (there are also direct flights from Cebu to Hong Kong). It’s a nice place to visit especially to see many hotels and casinos in this city. Those who are looking for a destination for a quick trip, it’s nice to know that this route is made possible and more convenient.
This direct flight launch gives Visayas and Mindanao travellers a more practical option to visit Macau so this is definitely a welcome news in Cebu and the airline industry.
Even Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) based here and have hometowns in the provinces will have much easier and direct access to go home when needed.
