Macau is extremely dependent on tourism and gambling, enabling visitors to do a variety of activities when taking a vacation in this wealthy city. The sites and attractions in Macau are a striking fusion of Chinese and European cultures.
Since the legalization of gambling in Macau, the city has become a well-known destination for gamblers and casino lovers. Now, Macau is dubbed as the “Monte Carlo of the Orient” and the city-wide gaming and gambling has attracted tourists from all over the world.
Aside from gambling, you can do the usual sightseeing that tourists do when on holiday. Located just across the bay from Hong Kong, there are several museums and one UNESCO World Heritage Site where you can learn about the Portuguese heritage of Macau.
Macau Tower Convention & Entertainment Centre is another popular holiday destination in the city. Its inspiration came from the Sky Tower in Auckland. It contains a cinema, shopping mall, conference center, observation deck, and several cafes.
If you are a night owl, you’ll be able to keep busy from dusk to dawn with all the fun for things to do in Macau at night. Nightlife in Macau is always buzzing and full of energy, mainly because of the casinos and entertainment centers that dot the small city. Along the Avenida Sun Yat Sen, you can find high-class bars and clubs where you can enjoy partying and bar hopping.
The humid subtropical climate of Macau allows the city to experience four distinct seasons. Summers are very hot, humid, and rainy while winters are cold, dry, and sometimes freezing. Spring can bring in some fog and warm weather.
Autumn, which occurs from October to November, is considered the best time to visit Macau because the weather is pleasantly warm and sunny without the stifling humidity.
The autumn season is also the time when you can watch the Macau Grand Prix, held annually in November. This street circuit racing event is participated in by both cars and motorcycles. International racers and riders compete in different adrenaline-pumping race categories.
