Macau Travel Tips: 10 Things to Know Before You Go

10 things YOU need to know before you go to Macau. A comprehensive travel guide to bring you up to speed on the Language, Food, Casinos, and more! First, some basic knowledge on Macau: Macau was a Colony of Portugal from 1557-1999, and now it’s a Special Administrative Region of China just like Hong Kong. Macau is small -- 30 sq km, or 11 sq miles. 640,000 people live there. In 2017 Macau had 30 million visitors… lots of people for such a tiny place. 64km (40 miles) west of Hong Kong. A great day trip from Hong Kong, but easily worth 2 nights

Macau is best known as a gambling and shopping mecca, but it also has a really neat historic portuguese center
Macau is the only place in China where you can gamble legally. It generates more revenue from gambling than anywhere else on the earth including more than about seven times the revenue generated by “The Strip” in La Vegas

4 main parts…
the main part of Macau with the historic Portuguese core. This is called the Macau Peninsula
Cotai Strip

2. Getting In

Ferry from Hong Kong
Takes 40-60 Minutes
2 different operators
Turbojet: The Red One
Cotai Water Jet: The Blue One
4 Ferry Terminal in Hong Kong
2 Ferry Terminals in Macau -
If you’re going to the Cotai Strip, most convenient to take Cotai Water Jet
Going to the Historic Portuguese section, take Turbojet

Macau does have it’s own airport, but not many flights

There’s a new bridge from HKG to Macau, you can take a bus on it

Or cross the border by land from China.

4. Unlucky
This number omitted because it’s unlucky. 4 in Chinese sounds like the word for “Death.” Most buildings typically omit this floor.

5. Getting Around

Free Shuttle Service

Macau’s hotels offer free shuttle service from the airport, ferry terminals, and border gates.

· The Venetian Macao Free Shuttle Schedule

· The Parisian Macao Free Shuttle Schedule

· Sands Cotai Central Free Shuttle Schedule

Public buses operate frequently throughout Macau, Taipa, and Coloane. Buses have onboard stop notifications in Mandarin, Cantonese, Portuguese and English.

· Price: Within Macau or Taipa: MOP3.2, Macau-Taipa: MOP4.2, Macau-Coloane: MOP5, Airport service: MOP4.2.

Macau’s taxis come in two color schemes: one is yellow, the other is black and cream. Both color taxis charge the same fees. Taxis stands are located near hotel lobbies.


·Base price (first 1.6 km): MOP17, additional MOP2 for each 260 m afterwards.
Extra fees: Taxi waiting fee is MOP2 for every minute. Taxis have a MOP3 luggage storing fee. There is a MOP2 fee from Taipa to Coloane, and a MOP5 fee from Macau to Coloane. There is an MOP5 fee for taxi trips to and from the airport.

Uber operates in Macau

6. Money
Macanese Pataca (MOP)
Most shops and restaurants will accept HKG to pay, with a 1:1 exchange rate to MOP
The exchange rate is fixed at HK$1 = MOP$1.03
But you’ll typically get change back in MOP

7. Language

Portuguese (but its own dialect)
And Chinese (Cantonese)
A little less english than Hong Kong, but enough to get by

8. Shopping

In every hotel on the Cotai Strip

9. The rest of Macau outside the Casinos and Historic Districts

10. Food:
Macanese cuisine’ is a mix of southern Chinese and Portuguese ingredients and cooking techniques. With a history dating back over 400 years, the cuisine is often regarded as the world’s first fusion cuisine.

Egg Tart that is so popular in Dim Sum restaurants originated here.. Lord Stows cafe is the original located in Taipa. Most convenient location is the one in the Venetian

Bifanas - Thin breaded pork Sandwich

Really good high end Chinese food cheaper than Hong Kong. The Wynn hotel has some really good options.

Macau Travel Guide - Macao Day Trip from Hong Kong

Come join us for a day trip from Hong Kong (香港) as we visit Macau covering the best things to do in one day in our Macau Travel Guide (澳門 - 澳门).

We started off our day waking up early in Hong Kong to get to the ferry terminal to take a TurboJET ferry to Macao. *Important* remember to take your passport as you're crossing one special administration region in China to another (Hong Kong to Macau) and you'll need to go through immigration on both sides (it doesn't take long).

After arriving we took free transportation (provided by the casinos and hotels) to check out the Venetian Casino and Parisian Hotel. Then we were off to Taipa to mostly eat Macau street food and enjoy the old colonial architecture.

We then made our way to Senado Square, the ruins of St. Paul's and Forte Monte while munching on plenty of Macanese street food before heading back to Hong Kong on a TurboJET ferry.

As you can see you can do a lot in just one day in Macau but a few things we didn't get to do included gambling at casinos, going up Macau Tower or checking out the A-Ma temple. For more of the things we missed out on but are worth considering doing in Macau see our two lists below.

Macau Travel Guide - Macao Day Trip from Hong Kong Travel Food Video Transcript:

Well good morning from Hong Kong. It is seven in the morning. A little early to be out in my opinion but today we're going to Macau. Special day.

So we've got our tickets for Macau. Woo! 160 Hong Kong dollars each. It is just over $20 US bucks and they give you your seats as you basically arrive. Just after you go through immigration. Yeah so we just got these little stickers. We're 17M and 17K and guys don't forget to bring your passport because technically you're going to a different special administrative region. You're going from Hong Kong to Macau.

This is part of our Travel in Macau video series showcasing Macau food, Macau culture and Macau cuisine.

Macau Travel Guide

A travel guide for visiting the Historic Portuguese Center of Macau. Macau (also spelled Macao) was a colony of Portugal from 1557 from 1999 and has a very interesting mix of Asian and European architectures. The Center of the old city is Senado Square which has a pedestrianized street that leads to the Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral. Macau derived it's name from the A-Ma Temple, originally built in 1448 and still standing today.

Macao/Macau travel guides: day 1! We arrived via TurboJet ferry from Hong Kong and headed straight to Macau Tower, ate dim sum at Lua Azul, checked in at the BEAUTIFUL Sofitel Hotel (check out the room tour!), ate (and made) Portuguese custard tarts at the infamous Lord Stow's bakery before ending the night with a traditional Macanese feast at The Miramir restaurant! The food was DELICIOUS and it was the perfect introduction to our 4 days in Macao! Coming up in the next video... GIANT PANDAS!!!

Macau Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Macau in China.
After 466 years, Portugal handed back the city of Macau to China. It is small and museum-like, a fine example of colonial Portugal on the South China Sea.

The Fortaleza Do Monte is a typical Portuguese fortified complex strategically located on a hill above the old cathedral in the heart of the city. Its many old canons and mighty fortress walls are reminders of those times when invasion was a constant threat.

The old centre of the city is the triangular Largo Do Senado, Senate Square. Its wonderful colonial buildings with their light-colored facades were built at the end of the 19th century and completely renovated in the final decade of the 20th.

Macau's largest Buddhist temple, Templo de Kun Iam Tong, dates back 400 years to the Ming Dynasty when its original foundations were built. Beyond its main gate, just off a busy street in the north of the city, is a peaceful oasis of silence and contemplation, a mystic place in which stone lions, golden Buddhas and all who visit are surrounded by serene, aromatic wisps of smoke.

The beautiful Jardim de Lou Lim Ioc Park is situated in the northern less touristy business district of the city. It was designed in the 19th century by a wealthy Chinese trader, Lou Kau. This marvelous oasis is an idyllic setting with a lotus pond, rocks, grottos and waterfalls.

Excursions are available on restored motorized junks that leave from the City's harbor several times a day.

Taipa is the larger of the two islands that belong to Macau. The tangled and narrow alleys in the centre of Vila da Taipa abound with rural character and Portuguese street signs are painted on azulejos. The island's shops and light-colored houses would be equally at home in Portugal.

Although the Macau of today has much contemporary flair, it continues to enjoy a rich colonial inheritance that is well worth seeing.

Things to do in Macau Travel Guide

Today's feature travel video from Asia is of the top attractions worth considering while visiting in Macau, China including checking out Senado Square and the Ruins of Saint Paul's Cathedral. Feeling well rested after going to bed several hours earlier than normal, we felt a jolt of adrenaline about exploring the historic areas of Macau located on another island from the hotel we were staying at. Fortunately, our hotel offered 'free' transfer service from Cotai to the Macau Peninsula. We literally went from an island filled with nothing but luxury casinos to a more historic area that featured historic Portuguese inspired architecture, cobbled walkways and a plethora of people.

As soon as we got outside of the transfer bus, Audrey marveled, I feel as though I'm back visiting more relatives in Brazil or wandering around in Portugal.

The first place we visited was the Senada Square (Portuguese: Largo do Senado; Chinese: 議事亭前地). With pastel colored buildings, Portuguese white & black pavement and a series of red lanterns, this place was a collision between East meets West.

Prior to Macau becoming the 'Las Vegas' of Asia with its plethora of casinos, Senate Square was the epicenter of the former Portuguese Colony of Macau.

As the Historic Centre of Macao (Chinese: 澳門歷史城區; Portuguese: O Centro Histórico de Macau) it is one of twenty locations featuring the melting pot of Chinese and Portuguese cultures in Macau.

Even though Macau has been a Special Administrative Region of China since 1999, it has still retained its Portuguese influence from several centuries of colonial rule.

As we walked past the main square we started to branch off into a narrower alley where we were inundated by the exotic smells of Macanese delights being peddled by shop owners and hawkers alike.

Some of the most popular Macanese foods we sampled included Egg Tarts, Almond Cookies and Porkchops in buns.

Macanese cuisine is a mix of Portuguese, Chinese and SE Asian ingredients forming one of the more distinct fusion style cuisines in all of Asia.

After taking the time to gormandize on Macanese treats, we continued our ascent towards the imposing Ruins of Saint Paul's Cathedral ((Portuguese: Ruínas de São Paulo, Chinese: 大三巴牌坊).

Considered as one of the most famous landmarks in all of Macau.

The heat and humidity of Macau in late August was on par with the weather we had been experiencing in SE Asia for several months.

This was distinctly different from the time I first visited back in February, 2008 when I could walk for kilometers on end without breaking a sweat.

Built from 1852 to 1602 by the Jesuits, Saint Paul's Cathedral was one of the grandest churches in all of Asia.

Destroyed by a fire during a typhoon in 1835, the southern stone faced features intricate carvings.

Finally we legged it up to Mount Fortress (Portuguese: Fortaleza do Monte; Chinese: 大炮台) for impressive 360 degree panoramic views of the city.

Fortaleza do Monte (Portuguese for Mount Fortress, also Monte Forte, officially Fortaleza de Nossa Senhora do Monte de São Paulo, in English: Fortress of Our Lady of the Mount of St. Paul; Chinese: 大炮台)

Cannons remain, some pointing directly at some of Macau's most monumental casinos, including the Grand Lisboa.

Overall, our late morning and early afternoon excursion was a fascinating glimpse into Macau's past with hints of modernity and riches flashing in all directions from the peak of Fortaleza do Monte:

First Time To Travel Alone + Travel Guide In Hong Kong & Macau

Honestly, I never thought I could travel alone but I was so happy I survived this trip and was able to do everything on my itinerary. I hope you enjoy watching my whole experience in Hong Kong and Macau. It was also my first time to do a travel guide vlog so if I need to improve something, please do let me know on the comment box below. I would appreciate it so much! :)

I learned so much on this trip. You really need a trip alone kahit once in your life. So you can have time for yourself and enjoy your own company. I didn't have a hard time taking my photos cos I'm super friendly, di man halata but yes, that's true. HAHA find someone who's holding a professional camera and take one photo for your framing and just instruct the person to put you on the center. You just need to be friendly guys! Another tip, pagurin nyo self nyo sa buong araw para pag gabi tulog nalang. Wala na kayong time mag emote at maging sad. Hahaha but yeah, I was able to find my own self and contemplate about life. This was definitely one for the books! :)

Please do finish the whole video. Huhu and watch it in HD para mas masaya! Thanks guys! Love you! :)

Going to Ocean Park:
From Causeway Bay Station, ride the Island Line(Blue Line) to Kennedy Town. After 2 stops, get off the train at Admiralty then transfer to South Island Line(Green Line) then get off at Ocean Park Station.

What to EAT in MACAU? BEST PORK CHOP BUN! Macau Travel Vlog

Our last day in Macau and we wanted to try more of the unique foods Macau has to offer. We started off our morning with the famous Portuguese egg tarts from Margaret’s Cafe e Nata (apparently the rival and ex wife of the famous Lord Stow).

Another must try street food in Macau are their famous Pork Chop Buns. The most well known is TaiLei Loi Kei but we preferred the Pork Chop Buns are Sei Kee Cafe.

Be sure to stop by the many UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Macau; the most popular sites being The Ruins of St Paul and St Dominic’s Church. Be sure to come early to avoid the flocks of tourists.

The rest of our afternoon we spent hotel hopping (there are free shuttle buses at every major hotel). It was amazing to see how extravagant each hotel was and you can’t go wrong with dining at any of the restaurants inside either!

Places Visited:

Margaret’s Cafe e Nata:

Tai Lei Loi Kei Pork Chop Bun (there are multiple locations):

Ruins of St Paul:

Macau Travel Tips | How Expensive Is Macau?

How expensive is Macau? In our Macau travel tips guide to Macau, China we cover arriving from the airport, accommodations, local transportation, casinos, Portuguese architecture and ruins and free attractions in the city. We explore what to see and do and local must eats including what we loved about Macau along with what we hated about Macau. Now let's explore the cost of travel in Macao, China in depth!

Official Exchange Rate = $1 USD = 7.99 Macanese Pataca (current as of February, 2017)

*Tip* Hong Kong Dollars are widely accepted in Macau so that is an option for paying for food, souvenirs and experiences. However, Macanese Pataca is not accepted in Hong Kong so be sure to spend your coins before heading back to Hong Kong.

*Check out our best things to do in Macau travel guide video =

Arriving to Macau from Hong Kong, Mainland China and elsewhere

1) TurboJET ferry from Hong Kong (takes about an hour and economy class is about $21-$24 USD - cheaper on weekdays). Frequent departures from Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and Hong Kong International Airport
2) Helicopter from Hong Kong (over $500 one way and takes less than 20 minutes)
3) Bus from mainland China (Guangzhou, Shenzhen, etc)
4) Budget flight from SE Asia or other elsewhere. Sometimes cheaper than flying into Hong Kong. Worth checking prices to confirm.
5) From the airport public buses and taxis are a cheap and efficient way to get to your hotel

Accommodations in Macau

1) Hostel in Macau - (basically non-existant)
2) 2 star or 3 star Hotel in Macau ($88 to $161 USD)
3) 3 star or 4 star Hotel in Macau ($120 to $600 USD)
4) AirBnB in Macau or apartment in Macau (rental) - (for a private room $40 to $60 USD and for your own apartment $80 to $200+)

*Note* Accommodations are expensive in Macau with essentially no budget options. Consider staying in Hong Kong and going on a day-trip or just biting the bullet and paying more than you budget elsewhere for a decent hotel.

Local Transportation around Macau

1) On foot (FREE! Great way to sightsee in Taipa and around Senado Square)
2) Casino and Hotel shuttle buses (absolutely FREE and how we got around when traveling any distance)
3) Local Bus (local price = 3.20 to 5.00 MOP)
4) Taxi (starting at 17 MOP and most rides are 50 MOP or less)
5) Cycle Rickshaw (local price = 200 MOP for a city tour)

Our prefered way to get around was by foot when distances were close and by free casino and hotel shuttles when distances were not within comfortable walking distance. We literally paid ZERO for our transportation and you can easily do this as well.

Macau Free Attractions (Free things to do in Macau)

1) Senado Square
2) Ruins of St. Paul's
3) Hotels and Casinos
4) Taipa Village
5) Free Samples of street food

Things to do in Macau (Macau must see)

1) Macau Tower (130 MOP for adults and 70 MOP for seniors and kids)
2) City of Dreams House of Dancing Water Spectacular (580 Hong Kong Dollars for adults and 406 HKD for kids)
3) Gambling (oh my gosh you could spend as much or as little as you want)

What to eat in Macau (Macau street food and local eats)

1) Eggs Tarts
2) Pork Chop Bun
3) Durian ice cream
4) Jerky
5) Almond Cookies
6) Portuguese wine

Macau Travel Tips | How Expensive Is Macau?

Things we LOVED about Macau (I love Macau)

1) Free to visit the hotels and casinos for shopping and entertainment (aside from gambling area)
2) Great street food options throughout the city
3) Cool Portuguese architecture and ruins
3) Easy as a day trip from Hong Kong
5) Free Transportation with casino and hotel shuttles

Things we HATED about Macau (I love Macau)

1) Lack of budget accommodations
2) Crowded around major attractions by midday
3) Potentially choppy ferry ride from Hong Kong

Final Thoughts

Macau is definitely worth a visit - especially if you're combining your trip with a visit to Hong Kong. Macau offers enough in terms of attractions even for non-gamblers to have a good time on a day trip from Hong Kong. For those wanting to gamble, enjoy nightlife and entertainment (shows) then a few days in Macau would be your best bet.

FIRST TIME eating MACANESE Food & KFC IN MACAU | Travel Vlog

It was our first time travelling to Macau and we were very excited to try Macanese food and explore the 'Vegas of Asia'.

We caught the ferry from Kowloon, Hong Kong; departing at the China Ferry Terminal. The are two ferry companies and many ferries departing each day. The ferry takes approximately 55mins to reach Macau so you can easily visit on a day trip but we wanted to spending a couple of nights exploring all the extravagant casinos.

Take advantage of the free shuttle buses that drops you off at the main hotels and casinos.

For dinner we wanted to try authentic Macanese food. Cafe Litoral located in Taipa Village had great reviews and did not disappoint. Some of the must try dishes include African Chicken and Suckling Pig!

For dessert we tried some Durian Ice Cream and Saw Dust Pudding (Serradura) at the famous Gelatina Mok Yi Kei.
