  • Rabbits in corner, people. Many tourists visit the main is a venue. It was also paved in black and white not sure about turnout. Feel the beauty illuminated, neon from the evening hours is the best there is. If Macau S.A.R. per night I think I should visit.

  • Nice place to take some photos. Take one of those free shuttle buses from both the ports to Lisboa hotel and take a slow walk. It would only take less than 15 minutes to reach Senado Square. Remember to check the weather before coming here. You don't want to get wet in the square.
  • Great shopping area. You can find lots of sport shoes shop around this area. Nice decoration with all the lighting, better to visit at night for taking photo.
  • One of the best place to visit in Macau. Your Macau experience is not complete without visiting this place. There are some authentic restaurant around the area. Just feel free to walk around to discover the hidden beauty of the square.
  • Great place to capture busses to all popular locations around Macao. Beautiful Portuguese architecture and design. It is not a big area but is easy to walk around.
  • My favorite spot in Macao, as a gathering place. In the morning it is less crowded but is one of the most wide open ares in the city core. Sit and watch the crowds munching on a free almond cookie.

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper. Head farther north for lower rates offered by hostels and apartment rentals.
