All Around the City
With a public holiday kicking off on the first day of May, what could be better than taking in a concert at Hác Sá Beach. Still in concert mode, the Macau Chinese Orchestra offers the Musical 'Dream of Journey to the West', while the Macau Orchestra performs Macau Soul in St. Dominic's Church. For International Museum Day organizers have lined up a host of exhibitions and activities, while many visitors will make the trip especially for the Feast of the Drunken Dragon, with the Feast of the God Tam Kong (with Chinese Opera) and the Feast of Buddha (with Vegetarian Carnival) on the same day.
The Procession of Our Lady of Fátima is also a huge draw in May, as is the solemn and very colourful A-Ma Festival, the exhibitions and performances of Le French May, and the 26th Macau Arts Festival, with its 30 riveting performances and 100-plus activities. The Spring Tropical Orchid Exhibition showcases dozens of varieties and thousands of the potted pots, with lots of activities to attend or join in, which you can do with the Heritage Night Tour, too.
Curious about the world we inhabit? Check out the Macau Science Museum's The Earth's Last Frontier – Mysteries of the Deep Sea Exhibition, plus a host of other exhibitions in galleries around town. And definitely make time for the 2015 Macau Library Week, the premiere Evening Concert of the year, the hi-octane Cotai shows, and the Macau International Film and Video Festival 2015. And this is just the tip of the iceberg – for a full rundown on what's on in town, download – and save – your favourites from the 'What's On, Macau' Mobile App, available in English, Traditional and Simplified Chinese via colourful, handy interfaces.
