Getting around Macau is relatively easy, with many tourist sites accessible on foot. Walk through the twisty, winding streets up to the ruins of the cathedral, observing well-preserved colonial architecture via the cobbled streets. The entertainment areas and bigger hotels are clustered along the waterfront and on the island of Cotai. The 55-kilometer Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is the world’s longest, and you have the choice to drive or take a high-speed ferry to Macau from Hong Kong. Start your visit to Macau in its historic heart, Senado Square (Senate Square) – a delightful pedestrian area. The square is also a great spot for shopping, and dining in restaurants featuring both European and Chinese cuisine. Temples, Museums alongside modern architecture make Macau a fascinating destination.
