  • Experience Macau!

    Macau is a fascinating mix of the East and the West, and the old and the new. Chinese temples and Catholic churches are very much part of the cityscape. Visitors appreciate the UNESCO heritage sites as much as the over-the-top casino hotels. While one is piously lighting joss sticks in one side of the island, another one is pinning future fortunes on a roll of the dice. If the visitors want to have the East-West fusion in one go, then the delicious way to have it is with Macanese dishes. Portugal ruled over Macau for 422 years and handed it over to the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1999. Since then, it has been designated as a Special Administrative Region of PRC. Gambling has been legalized in Macau in 1847. The new face of Macau as a gaming destination emerged in 2004 with the opening of Sands Macao. This was followed by a slew of similar mega-projects, the most prominent being The Venetian Macao. At present, it was reported that gaming revenues in Macau eclipses earnings of Las Vegas.

    Accessibility

    Hong Kong and the Mainland are very accessible. A mere 0.34-kilometre border separates Macau from Zhuhai, the Chinese border city. Hong Kong, located 60 kilometres (37 miles), is reached by an hour-long fast ferry ride. Hong Kong is a popular gateway to Macau. The Macau International Airport services direct flights from several points in Asia, specifically China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

    Currency

    Macau's official currency is the Macau Pataca (MOP). (The value of the Hong Kong dollar is slightly higher than the MOP.) Hong Kong dollars also freely accepted throughout the city, usually on par with MOP. China's RMB is increasingly being accepted as well. MOP exchange rate to the US dollar is about $0.16.

    Weather

    Macau Weather In May
    May is warmer than April and is occasionally very hot. The maximum temperature is about 28°C (82°F) and the minimum temperature is about 23 °C (73°F). It rains a lot, making May the wettest month of the year. Since it is not too hot, you can wear cropped pants and T-shirts, or a skirt. Though it often rains and sometimes thunders, the sun shines a lot; bring an umbrella and sunglasses to protect your eyes. If the rains are heavy, stay indoors when confronted with bad weather. The mornings are rarely foggy, so wake up early to experience the clean air of Zhuwan Beach while taking a relaxing walk.

    The climate is moderate to hot, with the mean variation between 16°C (50°F) and 25°C (77°F) throughout the year. The winter in Macau starts from January and lasts until March. The weather is a bit chilly but still quite sunny. In April, the humidity begins to increase and temperatures rise. The winds in the additional moisture and temperature increase the occurrence of rainfall as well. From May to September, the area experiences some shaky weather in the form of tropical storms.

    Getting around the city

    The taxi is the most convenient means of going around Macau. With more people going to Macau, getting a taxi is not as easy, especially during peak hours. Options are waiting in a hotel taxi queue or booking through telephone. Flag down rate is 10 MOP. There is a surcharge of two MOP from trips originating in Macau and heading for Taipa or Coloane. Macau has an extensive public bus service. Minimum fare is 2.50 MOP.
    Most hotels provide complimentary shuttle services to and from the ferry stations.

    Tourist interests

    There is much to see and do in Macau. A distinct advantage is its size. At 30 square kilometres (about 11 square miles) of land, reclaimed areas included, the compact size allows visitors to maximize their sightseeing time. Macau was originally divided into three islands – Macau, Coloane and Taipa. Cotai, home to mega-infrastructures, is the fourth area and was born from reclamation projects. Senado Leal in Macau, with its streets paved with wave-patterned mosaic tiles, is a good starting point. From there the branching narrow alleys are lined with boutiques, churches, antiques shops, souvenir shops and restaurants. There are markers leading to St. Paul's Ruins.
