Take tour around by bus

08-11-2010 14:53 BJT

Macau Bus lines cover almost all the attractions and hotels on the Macau Peninsular and the main tourist spots on the outlying islands of Taipa and Coloane. The bus routes operate on a one-way circuit around the city. This means you would not necessarily have the same stops on a return trip. Ask the bus drivers for details. Most public buses are air-conditioned middle-sized vehicles capable of carrying more than 20 people.

There are no conductors so it is necessary for you to have the appropriate change in coins before getting on a bus. For the trip within the Macau Peninsular, the fare is 2.5 MOP$. Several bus lines going further to the islands of Taipa and Coloane charge three to five Macanese dollars. The trip to Macau International Airport on the island of Taipa from the Macau Peninsular is six MOP$. The operating hours of most buses are from 6:00 to 24:00.

Travel Tip: We suggest travelers try to avoid the peak morning and evening traffic periods when people crowd onto buses to go to work or return home. All bus stop signs have bus route descriptions in both Chinese and Portuguese. English versions of the local map can be obtained from the counters of the Macau Tourist Bureau on Senado Square in the downtown area of the city.
