1. MUST Visit – Historic Centre of Macao

A visit to Macao is never complete unless you have visited the historic sites of the Ruins of St. Paul’s, Mount Fortress, Guia Fortress, Guia Lighthouse and the Macao Maritime Museum. Take time to learn about the history of Macao. In that you way you will be able to better appreciate the people and culture (& Food!) of Macao.

2. MUST EAT – Portuguese Egg Tart & Pork Buns

Portuguese egg tarts are world renowned because of its crispy yet flaky outer crust with its rich egg tart fillings. Pork buns on the other hand is flavourful with a tinge of fatty guilt. Yum!

Travel Tip : When you see a stall with portuguese egg tarts or pork buns, DO NOT WAIT TO TRY THEM! Just stop, get one to share. Otherwise, you may just tell yourself that “there will be another stall” and eventually when you leave Macao, you may not have tried them at all!

3. MUST TRY – Sampling at Koi Kei Bakery (鉅記)

There are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many Koi Kei Bakery stalls in Macao and at almost every turn of the street in the city centre, you may stumble upon one! The best part is that sampling at Koi Kei Bakery is free! There are so many products to choose from including almond, cashew, walnut cookies and an assortment of candies and gifts. But our favourite is the Egg Roll With Seaweed And Shredded Pork. Especially when it is freshly made!

Travel Tip 1 : You will have to lurk inconspicuously while maintaining “surveillance” over the tables as the chefs out on their final touches before the cookies, candies or egg rolls are complete. In this way, you will be able to sample the freshest bakes from Koi Kei!

Travel Tip 2 : Always go Koi Kei on an empty stomach (a cup of coffee is preferred). You may be tempted to try so many of its products that it can actually become a light meal!

4. MUST SEE – Cotai Strip
