Dubbed the Las Vegas of Asia, Macau has grown to become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. But there is more to Macau than just casinos—the dynamic SAR is a cultural melting pot that needs to be explored and discovered. A unique cuisine, top-notch restaurants, an emerging art scene, and exciting events—you will be surprised to find that it has all the ingredients for a perfect family holiday. Here’s a three-day itinerary to experience the best of Macau.
Now, there are just so many things that you won’t be able to squeeze in a three-day adventure. Here are a few more options that you might like to do and visit.
Taipa Village is just walking distance from the Cotai strip. Here you’ll find the food street called Rua da Cuhna. Sample snacks from the local eateries such as the pork chop bun, durian ice cream, Fong da coffee and egg tarts from Lord Stows. This popular tourist spot is a must-visit for the beautiful blend of heritage and modernity manifested in the buildings, roads, and landmarks.
The perfect Instagram subjects, pose in front of the pastel-hued villas, colonial churches and Chinese temples. With its cobblestoned alleyways lit by twinkling street lamps winding their way through the distinctive façades of Portuguese-style shops and homes, Taipa Village is an impressive medley of East and West and Macau’s divine destination for heritage and culture.
