“Macau... is home to a unique food culture and recognised as a prestigious UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.”
The culinary diversity of Macau (Macao Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China), stemming from the fusion of Sino-Portuguese
traditions, has earned it the title of UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy. The city boasts iconic dishes such as Portuguese egg tarts and almond cookies,
celebrated through various festivals and events. Additionally, Macau houses several UNESCO World Heritage Sites that showcase its unique blend of Chinese and Western architecture. Among these are over 20 buildings in the Historic Centre of Macao; the Ruins of St. Paul’s, a church dating back to the 17th century; and A-Ma Temple, dedicated to sea goddess Mazu since the 15th century—all popular tourist destinations not to be missed.
By land: Travelling from Hong Kong International Airport to Macau via the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge only takes approximately 45 minutes.
By ferry: Macau is easily accessible by ferry from Hong Kong. Frequent ferry services connecting the two cities take approximately 1 hour.
By helicopter: For those looking for a more
luxurious option, there are helicopter services available from Hong Kong to Macau, offering stunning aerial views of the region. Helicopter trips take around 15 to 20 minutes.
By air: The Macau International Airport is well connected to major cities in Asia, including Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Tokyo, Bangkok, Singapore, and more.
THE ICONIC LION SCULPTURES AT MGM MACAU
REVEALING THE VIBRANT FUSION OF ARTS AND CREATIVITY
The unique lions present different stories and meanings behind their appearances, such as praising the preserved gastronomy’s authenticity, honouring the art of silk and its contributions to the Silk Road, and demonstrating the charisma of
Peking opera as the national essence of traditional Chinese culture with the lion spirit and symbol.
NEW FONDANT ART
EXHIBITION AT MGM COTAI
A SWEET SPECTACULAR OF ARTS AND
LIVING CO-CREATED WITH THE “SUGAR
KING” OF CHINA
The exhibition, being the first solo exhibition of Zhou Yi, aspires to promote Chinese traditional culture and dough sculpture, a traditional Chinese craftsmanship that is also a piece of intangible cultural heritage. Zhou Yi creatively fuses dough with fondant art, a Western artistic medium, to create Chinese-style doll figures that amuse all. Innovatively merging food-crafting techniques, such as dough-sculpting and
fondant art, and artistic techniques like painting, spray painting, and sculpturing, the exhibition flaunts a brand-new cultural tourism experience of the art of living.
