DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Macao, once a busy fishing village and Portuguese settlement, but now a UNESCO World Heritage Site - and the seductive center of Asia’s entertainment and gaming industries - is an outstanding destination for a glamorous long-weekend at the Ritz-Carlton or St. Regis Macao. Spend three days soaking up the unique heritage of the Chinese city, imbued with Mediterranean pizazz and influence. Peruse the sights of old Macao and Taipa for a glimpse into the fascinating history of the former colony, then indulge in gastronomic delights from your choice of Michelin star restaurant. Finish your trip with a world-class show, or court the hand of lady luck at the gaming table.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Macao

On your first day of the Classic Macao itinerary, we will send a private car to whisk you up the Fortaleza do Monte hills, to the Macao Museum at the Fort, for a compelling insight into the diverse history and individual development of the old Portuguese outpost which was declared a UNESCO world heritage city. After a scenic stroll through old Macao, taking in the Ruins of St Paul’s and the baroque beauty of St Dominic’s church, there is plenty of time for a traditional Macanese lunch of African chicken, cod or Portuguese seafood rice. In the afternoon you will uncork the heady pleasures of the Macao Wine Museum, where you can savor stunning wines from their selection of over 1000 vintages on sale. Next, following a quick pit stop at your hotel, your car will transport you to dinner at Antonio - considered by many to be the finest Portuguese restaurant outside of Portugal.

DAY 2: Coloane, Taipa and Cotai Strip

A toothsome breakfast of creamy Portuguese egg tarts is perfect preparation for a wander around old Coloane and charming Cheoc Van Beach, with calories to spare for an invigorating trek up to A-Ma Cultural Village - a site dedicated to the Chinese goddess of seafarers Mazu. Then it’s back to the familiar setting of last night’s dinner, Taipa, where you will see first hand the artful juxtaposition of Portuguese and Chinese architecture peculiar to the region. Your evening will be spent in the City of Dreams, for a world-class performance of music and dance at ‘The House of Dancing Water’. Or, if you fancy your luck, head to the casinos for few hours of VIP treatment and high-stake thrills. Cap the night off with an exquisite meal at one of Macao’s 19 Michelin star restaurants, before heading back to the hotel for your final night.

DAY 3: Macao

After breakfast at your hotel, a private car will speed you on your way back home, or onward to your next destination, with a mind full of memories and, if you so chose, your pockets full of winnings.
