Macau One-Day and Two-Days Itinerary

This article is part of our completely FREE and FANTASTIC All in One Travel Guide to Having Fun in Macau. Why spend days researching when all your holiday information is simply a click away? πŸ™‚
—————

If you are planning for a trip to Macau, the below itineraries will be useful for you. Raevian and I stayed in Macau for two days at Conrad Hotel in Sands Cotai Central, and below you can see our two-days itinerary. However, we have came up with a one-day itinerary as well, in case you can only afford to spend a day in Macau. The main difference between the two itineraries is that the two-days itinerary includes a trip to Zhuhai.

Due to time constraints, the itineraries below do not include some attractions. You can refer our article on the ten places to eat in Macau, the ten things to do in Macau, as well as our map listing the places of attractions in Macau to plan your own itinerary. I highly recommend using the map as it will give you a clear idea of where the various attractions are situated.

It is very easy to travel around Macau. Most of the hotels provide free shuttle services. Galaxy Hotel (on Taipa Island), in particular, provides shuttles to many places in Macau. You can see the list of places on Galaxy’s website. If not, you can also catch a cab (the rates are very reasonable) easily at the airport, the ferry terminal, the hotels, or even along the roads. Feel free to email us if you have any questions!

    Hi Evans,
    Glad to find Macau Itinerary in your blog. It really helps me to plan my next trip to Macau-Hk.
    I’ve a questions : You said “Take shuttle to Venetian Macao/Four Season/City of Dreams/Sands Cotai Central/Galaxy Macau (15 minutes)”

    Which shuttle? How it cost? and where to find the shuttle stop?

    Am looking forward for your answer. Thank you!

    I’m traveling to Macau this weekend, and this was so helpful!

  5. Ed says:

    I am traveling to Hong Kong and Macau soon and this is very helpful! Thank you very much.

    However, I met a problem and it has to do with the transport – getting from Cotai area to Macau Peninsula area. I plan to stay at The Venetian Macao, which is pretty close to where you stayed at. From what I see, to get to Macau Peninsula area, I have to walk to Galaxy Hotel and take a shuttle bus from there to go to Taipa Village. From Taipa Village, I have to take a taxi to get into Macau Peninsula area. However, according to the bus schedule from Galaxy Hotel website, I didn’t see the Taipa Village station though?

    Another question is, is there any way to go directly to Macau Peninsula area, say Macau Tower, from Cotai using the shuttle bus? Or it is compulsory to stop at Taipa Village first?

    Last question, how much will it cost me roughly for a ten-minute cab ride in Macau? This is my first trip to Macau and I’m looking forward to your answer. It will determine if I should stay in Cotai area. Thanks again πŸ™‚

      Hi Ed,

      1. There used to be a shuttle service between Galaxy Hotel and Taipa Village but it has been discontinued.

      2. Yes there is a direct way to get to Macau Peninsula from Cotai. You can take a shuttle bus from Galaxy Hotel to β€œSan Ma Lo (新馬路)” (Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro), which is a two-minute walk away from Senado Square. Click here to see the shuttle schedule at Galaxy Hotel.

      3. A ten-minute cab ride in Macau will cost about 8 USD.

    This is nice. Macau is a wonderful place. I would have tried bungee jumping if I had more time.
