What you need for your trip to Macau

When it comes to travelling to Macau, there’s a few things that you might need to bring with you. Macau is one of the biggest gambling destinations in the world but is also relatively family friendly with most of the resorts catering for children as well as adults. No matter what you’re looking for in Macau, you’re certain to find it, and this destination is an exciting opportunity if you’re looking for the Las Vegas of Asia. We’ve put together a list of things that you’re going to need for your trip to Macau.

A Map

One of the things to know about Macau is that tourists are extremely welcome, but it is also quite easy to get lost in this expansive city. There’s plenty to see and do in the region, and the mix of cultural influences and striking landmarks are certain to make you want to have a long look around. Whether you’re looking for the 338m-high Macau Tower, the ruins of St Pauls or the A-Ma Temple, you’re going to want to have a map with you in order to help you navigate your way around and across the Pearl River Delta. 

Knowledge

Unless you’re willing to lose a lot of money in some of the giant casinos that have made their home in Macau, then you might want to brush up on your casino game knowledge. Online guides such as the Ladbrokes basic blackjack guide may be able to help you when it comes to taking on one of the many table games or slot machines in these casinos. Baccarat is one of the favourites in these casinos, alongside variations of poker, and of course slot machines, although you’re highly likely to find many more table games in these casinos suited to what you love to play. You should also be aware that many of the table games in the country generally have quite high minimum bets, so before you jump on to a table, you should brush up your skills so you make a profit instead of a loss.

Visa

One of the most important things to take with you when you’re travelling to Macau is your visa. Visitors are required to obtain a visa for entry admission alongside their usual passports and tourist credentials. There are three types of visas that you can get hold of when it comes to travelling to Macau, including individual visors for a single stay of up to 30 days in Macau, a family visa for couples, husband travelling with a wife and/or children of the same surname, or a group visa for groups of 10 or more and children aged 12 or under. However, if you want to travel to other Chinese regions then you should apply for a Chinese visa rather than simply a Macau visa. These visas can be obtained through the Macau Immigration Services through an embassy or consulate in your home country, or alternatively at the Immigration Services upon arrival in Macau.
