Rua do Almirante Sérgio 289

Rua de Cinco Octubro 115

Wine Museum
Portugese wine unsurprisingly figure strongly in the well- laid-out wine museum that runs you through the history of wine in the SAR before letting you sample a glass or two. Try the white port before buying a bottle in the small shop at prices cheaper than Europe.

Rua Luis Gonzago Gomes 431
The Red Market (Hung Kai Si)
Located on the corner of Avenida Horta e Costa and Avenida Almirante Lacerda, the Art Deco Red Market is where Macau comes to shop for all manner of food stuffs amongst the knock-off gadgets and cheap clothing.

Lago da Torre de Macau
The brave (or foolish) can bungee jump off the top of Macau’s most iconic building – it’s the tallest bungee jump in the world. Better to feast on the surprisingly good evening buffet at the revolving 360° Café (Tel: +853 8988 8622) or feed that sweet tooth at the Tower Patisserie.
