Taipa

South of Macao Peninsula, the island of Taipa is accessible via three bridges over the Pearl River. Connected to Coloane island to the south by the Cotai Strip, Taipa is home to most of Macao's residents, as well as the region's international airport. From its rural beginnings, the 20th century has seen Taipa undergo major redevelopment and these days it is considered an alternative city to the Peninsula, with its own hotels, casinos, shopping malls and the Macao Jockey Club racecourse.

Experiences

Gambling

For a more local flavor of gambling in the "Las Vegas of the East", the casinos of Taipa are more likely to be frequented by the island's residents. Crown Macau, Casino Taipa and New Century all boast floors packed with slots and games for an evening's enjoyment.

Macao Jockey Club

For a “flutter” of another kind, visitors can place their bets on a horse at Macao’s elegant race course. Complete with a sand track and turf track, and with two clubhouses, the Macao Jockey club is open all year round.

Museum of Taipa and Coloane History

Visitors interested in the islands either side of the Cotai Strip, and their stories before the casinos and hotels were built, should make a stop here. The exhibits and displays provide an informative and interesting insight into early Macao.

Taipa Houses Museum

This row of restored colonial houses has been made into a museum through which visitors can explore and discover the lifestyles of their early-20th century owners.
