Spotlight on: Macau

 3 Days 2 Nights
Price from $350
Located across the Pearl River, this once Portuguese colony is a unique blend of Mediterranean and Asian culture. Starting at only $350, our Macau City Package includes:
- Round trip pier/hotel transfers
- 2 nights hotel accommodation

Day1: Transfer from the pier to your hotel and rest up for a day of sightseeing tomorrow.
Day 2: Today we will visit St Paul’s Ruins, Penha Church, Barrier Gate, Kum Iam Temple and Lisboa Casino. Lunch is included.
Day 3: Transfer from hotel to pier


This first stop of the day will be at St Paul’s Ruins. This 17th century Portuguese Cathedral is dedicated to St.Paul the Apostle and was honored in 2005 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the time of its construction, the Cathedral was considered to be the largest Catholic Church in Asia. However, in 1835 a fire during a typhoon greatly damaged the Cathedral leaving solely the fa├žade, staircase, and portion of a wall. It remained unchanged until it underwent restoration in 1990.


Next, you will stop at Penha Church.  Barely escaping capture by Dutch raiders, this chapel was built in 1622 by the crew and passengers of a Portuguese ship. This chapel that once served as a pilgrimage site for sailors embarking on perilous journeys is just one of the many amazing places you will visit during your day of sightseeing.

Following Penha Church, you will continue on to the Barrier Gate and then the Kun Iam Temple.  One of the oldest temples in Macau, the Kun Iam Temple was erected in 1400s to honor the goddess of mercy. The first Sino-American treaty signed in 1844 is located on one of the stone tablets of the temple.
Finish your day with a stop at the famous Lisboa casino.
