All Around the City
This month the city rejoices with gusto in the 10th anniversary of the Historic Centre of Macau's recognition as a World Heritage site. Take a guided tour of the Historic Centre – plus tours through the Peninsula lanes and the islands of Taipa and Coloane. Or enjoy one of the eight walking tour routes themed 'Step Out, Experience Macau's Communities', taking in free performances at sightseeing points along the routes at weekends. Both Coloane Village and Taipa Village squares host great Saturday afternoon entertainment perfect for the whole family. And why not pick up a Star Merchant Award – Restaurants and Eateries Guide while you're out and about, remembering, of course, that Macanese Gastronomy was inscribed on the Macau Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2012!
The 5th Macau Youth Symphony Orchestra Music Festival is in full swing, as are Jazz singer Kirsten Long and renowned Malaysian guitarist Az Samad. Music lovers will also want to catch the end-of-season performances of the Macau Orchestra and Macau Chinese Orchestra, the latter in the baroque splendour of Dom Pedro V Theatre.
