There are a plethora of things to see and do in this underrated destination in the south of China. In spite of it being only a one-hour ferry ride from Hong Kong and also in spite of the fact that you do not even need a visa to visit here it is quite surprising that more people do not flock to this destination because it certainly should not be an opportunity that is missed.
The history and the diversity
This tiny slice of China has a profound history with its marriage of the East and West creating some amazing historical landmarks that are UNESCO world heritage sites. Due to the blend of people and cultures there is so much to see, do and just experience thanks to this unlikely fusion of two very different cultures merged to create what is now Macao. You gain a true understanding of how much diversity there is in the world around you. A great way to experience this diversity and history on a deeper level surprisingly enough is to choose a good hotel to stay in, and you can stay at great hotels that boast interesting and luxurious experiences at a good deal such as the great Banyan Tree Macau package. The Banyan Tree hotel vibrantly emphasizes the bled of Macao’s Portuguese and Chinese history that draws you into its cultural diversity more intensely.
They have various dishes from Portuguese dishes like salted cod to typical Chinese food. And then there is a magical blend of the two cuisines creating the unique taste of what is now authentic Macanese food. As much as you will enjoy all of this make sure to leave room for the Macanese delicacy of egg tarts because you absolutely cannot forget to try their famous egg tarts while you are there!
The endless entertainment and activities
You can go to Macau tower and attempt the sky walk on the highest skywalk in the world which is close to 250 meters off the ground or you can dare to try the bungee jumping, that is, if you’re truly brave enough to try the highest bungee jump in the world! There are also both black and white beaches, one is more private while the other is busy and you can go to either one to have a good time in the sun. Then there are the more vigorous activities for those who desire it like hiking or biking through various trails.
If you love shopping, you will love it here because you can get good deals and great bargains from the many shopping areas and if you really like a good bargain then several hotels offer amazing deals such as Holiday inn Cotai pacakge where you can get the most reasonable price for the best place to stay.
These are just some of the main reasons that you need to tick Macau off your bucket list of places to see in the world.
