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.

  • Constructed in 1622 by Augustinians and then in 1834 when they were expelled. Church was reconstructed in 1837 and then rebuilt in 1935. In the old days, the chapel served as a pilgrimage site for Catholic sailors who embarked for a dangerous voyage. In front of the chapel stands a statue of Our Lady Lourdes and at the steps of the hillside staircase exists the picturesque grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. (Provide protection to seamen and fishermen)
