Reasons to visit Macau

Was curious to why people visit Macau.

Obviously gambling is the main factor, is there any other draw card?

Eg, Vegas has conventions, lots of entertainment, great food.

What about Macau?

Besides great shows, wonderful Chinese and Portuguese food, the historic centre of Macau is the World Heritage Listed in 2005. It stands today as a living testimony to the integration and co-existence of eastern and western cultures over a unique chapter in history.

Welcome to the Macau forum.

In addition to having a look at the 'Things to do' listings here on Tripadvisor, you can spend some time browsing the Macau Government Tourism Website as well as the following links.

Macau – Top Attractions (by area)


Macau World Heritage (by area)



Macau Day Trip from HK (what you need to know)


Macau Day Trip (Macau Highlights – Day Trip)


Generally speaking, we usually suggest combining a visit to Hong Kong and Macau, they are separated by 50 minute ferry ride.

Gambling is a vanishingly small reason in my love for the little city of Macau (in fact I much preferred it in the days when the Cotai strip was still under water and there was a sports field where the Grand Lisboa now stands).

I enjoy exploring all its little alleys and crannies on foot, the history, rummaging around in market stalls, the parks and gardens, striking up random conversations with folks (of course speaking Chinese helps with that one!), and of course the FOOD :-)
