All Around the City
Selfies, lucky draws, prizes, bus tours, new places, new faces – it's all part of the 'Step Out, Experience Macau's Communities' packed programme of activities. The 10th Anniversary of the Historic Centre of Macau as World Heritage – Exhibition on the achievements in safeguarding the cultural heritage in Macau and Jao Tsung-I Academy are also must-sees, with literally dozens of activities of an educational, fun and participatory nature on offer.
And Macau is honoured to receive one of the world's most renowned opera singers in Plácido Domingo, who includes the territory in his triumphant 2015 world tour with a stellar supporting performance by the Macau Orchestra.
And we're at the height of summer. Get in the swim in Hác Sá Beach – with its safe swimming, BBQ pits, basketball courts and overnight camping sites. Check out Coloane Village and Taipa Village weekend activities – and there's more going on at the 5 Outubro Street Art Fair and Sun Never Left stalls on the Peninsula. Plus Open Air Film Shows in historic Rua de Felicidade (Happiness Street), Night Market and Street Performances in the old city districts. Lots of new exhibitions, concerts, shops and expos to catch up on, too.
The Macau Cultural and Creative Map plus mobile app in multiple languages is also conveniently at hand from checkpoints, museums, hotels, travel agencies, cultural and creative entities. As you stroll around the city, keep an eye out for the Star Merchant Award certificates and window stickers - awarded merchant details are listed in the Star Merchant Award – Restaurants and Eateries Guide, which is widely available.
