How to Spend 2 Days in Macau

How to Spend 2 Days in Macau

With two days in Macau, you have time to soak up the historic city center, marvel at modern attractions, wander Macau’s Portuguese villages, and see its Vegas-style shows. Here’s how to make the most of your 48 hours in Macau.

Day 1: City Essentials

Morning: Kick off your 2-day trip with a guided tour of Macau’s historic city center. Climb the steps of St. Paul, tour the A-Ma Temple (likely the city’s oldest Buddhist temple), and walk the last remaining section of the Old City Walls, dating back to the 16th century. Opt for the hop-on hop-off bus to tour at your own pace.

Afternoon: After lunch, visit one of Macau’s museums. Dive deep into local history at Macau Museum at Monte Fort, learn about Macau’s seafaring past at the Maritime Museum, get hands-on at the family-friendly Macau Science Center, or soak up the sun at Luis de Camoes Grotto and Garden.

Night: Finish off your day with the popular show, The House of Dancing Water. Created by former Cirque du Soleil director Franco Dragone, this multi-million dollar production features aerial and aquatic stunts above a 3.7-million-gallon (14,000-cubic-meter) pool.

Day 2: Colonial Macau

Morning: While Macau might have the reputation as the Las Vegas of China, it started as a Portuguese colony. This cultural heritage is alive and well on the Cotai strip, particularly in the villages of Coloane and Taipa. Walk the cobbled streets, have lunch in a Portuguese restaurant, or go for a swim at one of two public beaches.

Afternoon: After exploring Macau’s colonial past, step into the present at Macau Tower, the tallest building in Macau. Soak up the 360-degree views from the observation deck or choose a more adventurous option, like an outdoor Skywalk or bungee jump—the highest commercial bungee jump in the world at 764 feet (233 meters).

Night: Wrap up your trip with another popular Vegas-style show, Monkey King – China Show. This performance at the Sands Cotai is based on the Chinese legend Journey to the West about the travels of a famous monk and the Monkey King. It’s subtitled in English.
