Places in Macau
Take bus 3 from the Macau–Hong Kong Ferry Terminal to Largo do Senado (Macau's main square) and visit the Church of St Dominic, Lou Kau Mansion and other sights around the square. Wander up to the Ruins of the Church of St Paul, then Monte Fort and the Macau Museum above it; allow two hours for these three sights.
The Islands: Taipa & Coloane
Jump on a bus to Coloane village and take an easy two-hour stroll around, soaking up the ambience and making stops at the Chapel of St Francis Xavier and Tam Kong Temple. Then take a bus to the Cotai Strip to the mega casino resorts where you can play the tables or catch a free show. Then it's on to Taipa.
