Best way to spend 24 hours in Macao this summer
Start the day with some picturesque sightseeing. Forget St Pauls and head to Rua da Felicidade instead. The former Macanese red light district (which, funnily enough, translates to Happiness Street) is a small street still bursting with old charm. Its colourful wooden houses are well maintained and there are great restaurants to sample if you’re feeling peckish after the ferry ride to Macao.
Now you’re refuelled, why not take in some culture. The Macao Museum of Art’s summer exhibition (Avenida Xian Xing Hai, +853 8791 9814) is a cracker. On show from June 1 to August 26, see the work of Marc Chagall from the 1950s to the 1970s. Born in Belorussia in 1887, Chagall was a major artist of the 20th century who borrowed from many art movements without ever restricting himself to one in particular. His vivid colours and warm light make for an inviting look at imaginary horizons.
After you’ve checked into your room at Wynn Palace, it’ll be time to grab some lunch. Open all day, Fontana Buffet has 10 different food stations all showcasing the best seasonal ingredients. Whether you’re after fresh seafood, succulent cuts of meat or an extensive array of dessert dishes, you can find what you want here.
Take a load off your feet and pamper yourself at the hotel’s SPA & Salon. This is the perfect excuse to make use of your daily dose of $688 hotel credit. Inspired by the opulence and tranquillity of China's legendary palaces, you can enjoy a huge range of treatments here – from rejuvenating facials to game-changing massages. Wynn Palace adds that regal touch with each treatment being custom-designed, tailored to each guest's specific needs and only using the best products, created exclusively for Wynn Palace.
Having been good for lunch now’s the time to treat yourself to some fabulous steak and seafood. Inspired by the award-winning SW Steakhouse in Las Vegas, this outpost in Macau is equally sumptuous, offering USDA Prime steaks from America, Black Angus beef from Australia and exclusive cuts of beef direct from Japan. Did we mention there’s also a lobster cart overloaded with the freshest seafood from Southeast Asia and the Pacific? On top of all that, every 30 minutes the lights go down and a theatrical show appears in the centre of the restaurant to dazzle diners.
After all that, take it easy and sink into your hotel bed for the night.
There’s no better time to experience Macao in the lap of luxury, so start booking now and take advantage of this outrageously good offer!
