Macau has been selected as one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 regions for Best in Travel in 2015. Offering some of Asia’s best attractions, Macau is merely 3 hours and 45 minutes away via direct flight from KLIA2. Perfect for families, a solo adventure or a romantic trip for two, there is so much more to do besides exploring the city’s rich history and heritage.
In 2014, Macau received over 30 million tourists. Among the reasons cited for its appeal is that Macau is affordable, convenient to get around, safe, and is strategically located.
Additionally, there is surely something for everyone. History buffs will enjoy the World Heritage site that is home to the Ruins of St. Paul, A-Ma Temple and Senado Square. The historic attractions also sit comfortably with newer sites such as the Macau Tower & Convention Centre, which features the world’s highest bungee jump at 233m.
For foodies, Macau’s delectable blend of Asian, Portuguese and African influences certainly adds an exotic twist. You may want to try Galinha de Africana (African Chicken), Portuguese egg tarts, almond cookies and other tempting delights.
For those who enjoy art, the month of May brings one of Asia’s best highlights on the performing arts calendar – The Macau Arts Festival, which showcases some of the world’s best performances featuring theatre, dance, music, cinema, art exhibitions and more.
