"LAS VEGAS OF THE ORIENT" Concelho de Macau by limledi

Concelho de Macau Travel Guide: 735 reviews and 2,527 photos

Macau is known to be the "Las Vegas of the Orient". Most people went there as a side trip from Hongkong. I was pleasantly surprise to find so many things to explore. Our four-day trip was just enough. Some of the main attractions we went to are Senado Square, Ruins of St. Paul, churches, gardens, temples, etc. I also enjoyed the ride up Macau tower to have a 360 degree view of Macau. Fisherman's Wharf is also interesting especially the volcano. Try to include Taipa & Coloane Villages in your itinerary. You can do Macau on your own coz the transport system is very efficient. It's best to have a map so you can see which bus to take to a particular destination. I find it to be truly enjoyable taking the public bus touring the place. As for food, it's not hard to find especially around Senado Square & Rua da Felicidade. Bring lots of almond cookies & peanut candies as souvenirs back home. Try also their congee & wanton noodle soups.

Ruins of St. Paul is the most famous landmark in Macau. It is the most visited place here. It is said that you havn't visited Macau if you haven't been to St. Paul Ruins.

Going up the Macau Tower is definitely a must do if you're visiting Macau. Even if you will not take the buffet or do skyjumping, just the all around view of Macau from the top is worth it.
