Read on for five unique activities to do in Macau in case you ever feel the need to spend your winnings, mourn your losses, or simply take a break from rolling the dice.
1. Bungee Jump in Macau Tower
Feeling like the king of the world after making a killing at the casino? Take a plunge in the world's highest commercial bungee jump for an even greater adrenaline rush. It will cost you more than a few dollars, but the memory and that feeling of free falling? Priceless.

3. Learn about Macau's History and Culture
A melting pot of eastern and western influences thanks to its unique history, explore Macau's rich history and culture by visiting its many landmarks. Learn about the different religions practiced by its people and the history that shaped why Macau is the way it is today.
4. Ogle at the Opulence!
Ever wonder about the lifestyles of the rich and the famous? Visit Macau's many luxurious hotels for a glimpse of how the other half live: marble floors adorned with gold bars, intricate ceiling artwork, a store for every luxury brand you could think of. You might even spot an actual celebrity on holiday, if you're lucky!
5. Discover Macau's Local Side
Looking for something a little ways away from the tourist traps? Jump off the hotel shuttle and take a walk to the other side of Macau - quiet streets, quaint gardens and parks, little eateries, and random street art.
