Plan a Trip to Macau with Dook
The Macau Peninsula is a great travel experience without a doubt. However, planning out your entire Macau Tour could seem like a lot of work, especially due to all the sights that you could see. However, you don’t have to worry, Dook International has got all bases covered with all our Macau Tour Packages that make sure your trip will have absolutely no hitches.
Best Travel Experiences in Macau
When travelling through Macau, your best option is to go see all the historic sites as they hold a lot of significance and besides that, they are gorgeous to look at and photograph. To make sure you don’t miss out on any of these sights, prebook one of our Macau Holiday Packages before your trip! This is an absolute must visit destination for anybody who is a history buff or loves architecture, but you would have a great time here even if you love partying and a good time.
One of the most treasured icons in Macau is the Ruins of the Church of St Paul. The tall façade and the stairway are all that is left of this church from the 17th century. However, it is still a very interesting place to visit as it depicts an important milestone of Christianity in Asia. When you go there by booking one of Dook’s Macau Packages, you will get to see statues and engravings that make up a Bible of the poor, intended to assist in the illiterate in understanding Christianity and the lives of saints.
Another great stop on your Macau Tour would be the Church of St Joseph. It is sometimes overseen in the tourism circuit, but it is without a doubt one of Macau’s most beautiful examples of baroque architecture that was influenced by tropical styles as well. It was created in the mid 16th century, it has a scalloped canopy and a staircase that leads to a courtyard from where you can see the front of the church and the dome. This dome is the oldest one ever built in China. The interior is decorated lavishly and has stunning columns and pillars, along with three altars.
Guia Fortress and its chapel can be found at the highest point of the peninsula. It presents you with a gorgeous, panoramic view of the city that you cannot find elsewhere. The Chapel of Our Lady of Guia has retained almost all of its original features, and it has frescoes that have both Portuguese and Chinese details, making it one of the most important chapels in all of Asia. If this kind of heritage is something you’re interested in, you must book one of our Macau Tour Packages so you can see this sight yourself in person.
You can also visit the Chapel of Our Lady of Penha, that perches gracefully atop Penha Hill. It used to be a place of pilgrimage for Portuguese sailors in the 17th century as it was started by survivors of a ship that had narrowly escaped capture by the Dutch. The courtyard contains a marble statue of Our Lady of Lourdes that faces the ocean and there are symmetrical staircases that lead to a grotto of the aforementioned saint. There is the bishop’s residence attached to the chapel but this area is closed off to visitors. You may not be able to see the Bishop’s Palace but you can see the rest of the location by booking one of our Macau Holiday Packages.
Top Things to Do in Macau
When in Macau, you can experience how the locals lived here historically by taking a trip to Taipa Village. The heritage of the district is best preserved in this quaint, southern village. Traditional Chinese businesses and a few top-notch restaurants are housed in a complex maze of alleyways, while colonial homes, churches, and temples dot the wider major roadways. The major pedestrian thoroughfare, Rua da Cunha, is lined with hawkers offering free samples of beef jerky and Macanese almond biscuits, as well as tiny cafes selling egg tarts and serradura pudding. By booking one of our Macau Packages, you will get to see how the people lived and experience a bite of history.
When you are on your Macau Tour, it is important to see the intricate libraries in the city as they are very famous. You can start with the Sir Robert Ho Tung Library which was founded in the 19th century and is an absolutely charming little building. The colonial style building was given a modern extension in 2006, by adding a new four-storey structure made out of glass and steel as well as Piranesi inspired bridges that connect the old house with the newer part.
You can swing by the Senate Library, which is the oldest and most lavish library in all of Macau. It is an adaption of the 18th century library in the Convento de Mafra that is present on the outside of Lisbon. While it is much smaller than the original library, it has a baroque style ceiling with dark wood bookcases that are closely reminiscent of the original. It has a collection of 19,000 books in Portuguese, French and English. Make sure to note that photos are not allowed inside the library! If libraries are your idea of a good time, prebook one of our Macau Holiday Packages ahead of time!
Best Places to Eat & Drink in Macau
While making the most of Dook International’s Macau Tour Packages, you will surely feel hungry from all the sightseeing, so take a stop to experience Macau’s food culture. A popular destination is a branch of Hong Kong’s Fook Lam Moon. This place is known as the tycoons’ canteen, and it certainly lives up to the name in both quality and price. Given that this is an opulent casino restaurant, the cuisine favours seafood specialties such dried abalone and sea cucumber, which are served to such a high standard that it has received numerous awards, including Michelin stars.
Best Shopping Places in Macau
Due to its inherently lavish nature, Macau is a great place for all your shopping needs. Your Macau Tour wouldn’t be complete without buying souvenirs for yourself and all your friends and family awaiting you back home. A great place for tourist would be the Cunha Bazaar, a four-storey shop on the corner of Taipa Village’s pedestrian street. It has a great collection of made-in-Macau gifts, T-shirts, candies and more! There are also traditional foods here and the whole first floor is dedicated to goods that include Macau’s mascot, Soda Panda.
