All Places Macao

Wynn Macau

On 6 September 2006 Wynn's huge casino/hotel/resort complex opened, and many expect it to soon surpass all of its rivals in gambling income. At night there are short fountain shows in front of the hotel with music, spraying fountains and the occasional bursts of flame. The casino is beautiful with mostly slot machines and baccarat tables. The Wynn offers lots of very upscale shopping and several fine restaurants.

Mandarin House

The Macau Mandarin House is the former residence owned by eminent modern Chinese thinker Zheng Guanying and his father Zheng Wenrui. The house was built in around 1881 and over time, many families occupied the complex. It covers an area of about 4,000 sq metres and is a traditional Chinese-style compound containing a number of buildings

Hotel Ritz

Rua do Comendador Kou Ho Neng. Situated amidst the breath-taking Penha Hill overlooking the panoramic view of Praia Grande Bay and Macau-Taipa Bridge, Hotel Ritz occupies the best location in Macau. It is next door to the popular spot Penha Church, and within short distance from A-Ma Temple as well as the city centre.

Pousada de São Tiago

Avenida da Republica, Fortaleza de Sao Tiago da Barra. This is the hotel with the most character in Macau. Still fairly small (although there are plans to expand) and very good personal service. Great for a special, romantic stay.

Augusters Lodge

Priced at $120 for a dorm bed and from $260 for a double room, it's probably the cheapest place to stay in Macau, but you only get the basic amenities. It is in the center though, and a nice place to meet other backpackers.

Sanva Hotel

Macau's oldest guesthouse is cleap, clean and near the historic sites. It's been used as the set of many movies, including Wong Kar Wai's ''2046''. Rooms have fan only and shared bathrooms. Popular with backpackers.

Porto Exterior

Bustling, unpretentious restaurant with reasonably authentic and tasty Portuguese and Macanese fare. Try the ''arroz de cabidela'' (MOP 78) and wash it down with a glass of the house wine (MOP 35).

Hotel Royal

2-4, Estrada da Vitoria. Located at the foot of the historic Guia Light House and facing the Vasco da Gama Park. Nearby business district and tourist attractions are within walking distance.
