Macau's blend of east and west cultures tops the bill this month, with a wide selection of entertainment from both spheres. Portuguese folk dance, Chinese martial arts, magic show, National Intangible Cultural Heritage-listed Drunken Dragon dance and Cantonese Opera, are all part of the ongoing fun around town.
It's a time for spiritual reflection, with Easter and the A-Ma Festival demonstrating centuries of cultural harmony in this truly international city. The wet and wonderful Macau Myanmar Overseas Chinese Water Festival is back again, with plenty of spectacle and exotic food and performances.
Meanwhile, art exhibitions emphasize Macau's role as a showcase for contemporary artists' work, as in the "Conforming to Vicinity" exhibition at the Handover Gifts Museum, exhibitions of works by local artists, and the Animamix Biennale at the Macau Museum of Art, where we also get glimpses of the past in photographs and paintings of old Macau.
Off the beaten track, lesser-known neighborhoods are doing their best to attract visitors, with Happy Safari bringing Nam Van and Sai Van to life and plenty to see around the beautiful St. Lazarus district with its galleries, shops and cafes. Picturesque fairs bring us to Taipa Village for the weekly flea market, St. Lazarus for "Sun Never Left", the 5 Outubro Street Art Fair, and street theatre makes weekends in Coloane more fun than ever for young and old.
Exploring Macau's history and heritage is easier than ever with guided tours from Institute for Tourism Studies and the "Cultural heritage meets literature" tours at the Mandarin's House and Kun Iam Temple.
Macau's public libraries are inviting the public to a series of events to mark the Macau Library Week and introduce their facilities, some of which are worth visiting for their architectural or historical interest as well.
Cinema buffs will be flocking to the Macau International Film and Video Festival 2014 to enjoy local and international films.
All these activities are more accessible than ever, with the Experience Macau app, free citywide WiFi Go,the Audio Guide Service and Tourism Hotline. The Macau Budget Hotels Site makes it easy to find reasonably priced accommodation.
