    Favorite thing: If you are a chinese buddhist, you would buy assorted paper stuff molded into different shapes and sizes and things like paper money, paper boat, paper airplanes, paper coffins, paper houses, paper yachts and a way lot more as offering to the chinese deities and ancestors for good luck. Then you will offer them at the temples to burn with incense and your corresponding peitions or prayers for good luck or other intentions.

    It is a known chinese cultural thing that is done by chinese everywhere

  • Cotai Rewards

    by farahjadez Updated May 2, 2009

    Favorite thing: If you're planning to stay/play at Venetian or Sands, you might want to apply for a Cotai Rewards card. This is free - just fill out the forms available at the Cotai booth in the hotel lobby and you're good to go. You can get 10-20 % discount in their restaurants and some shops. Also bring the card when playing at the casino, and earn points for playing. Earned points can be used to redeem free tickets, meals, and other perks. Of course, the more you play, the more points you earn. =)

    Indoensian doesn't need visa to enter Macao

    by sukalejong Written Mar 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Indonesian doesn't need visa to enter Macao. But they must have one to go to Zhuhai.
    Apply China visa in Jakarta, it only takes 3 days to get it, and the cost for it is Rp 150.000 (August 2007).
    Unless you are a journalist, the process to apply visa in China Embassy is easy. Just bring your passport and two 4x6 photos...

    Fondest memory: Dont' forget to visit Museo de Macao. It shows you "the jouney" of Macao, from a tiny village to a big city.
    You will amazed with the multimedia presentation. Even, they have "ancient" hawker yelling...
    It is a worth visit...

    The Portuguese Egg Tart

    Favorite thing: Similar to Portugal, the famous portuguese Pastel de Nata, or Portuguese Egg Tart, is a very popular pastry in Macao. It's very curious to notice this. :)

    In Portugal there's no pastry shop without pastel-de-nata for sale and in Macao, China, this pastry is also very popular.

    Favorite thing: to get cheap mobile phone call rates while in Macau. This is for GSM and 3G phones, not for CDMA phones.
