Shopping in Macau

Are there any factory/premium outlet stores or any malls worth checking out? With brands similar to I.T in HK, brands like thom browne, jil sander, CDG etc.

Hello orlylow

Not really! There is a considerable amount of high end luxury brand name shopping at the malls attached to the casino/hotel complexes. Try One Central at Mandarin Oriental and MGM in the main Macau Peninsula. On the Cotai Strip you can try the The Shoppes at Venetian Canal, Four Seasons and Sands Cotai Central.

For midrange department store shopping, the best option is the New Yoahan (see link).

on the Macau Peninsula. For cheaper end goods and consumables, go to the streets around the Three Lamps District, which are teeming with small local shops selling about everything (see link).

Hope this is helpful and that you enjoy your time in Macau.

If you are going to Hong Kong & Macau in your trip, I would not be so eager to spend time shopping at Macau.

Thanks! Are there any good, affordable portugese restaurants around? I've only tried A Lorcha years back. Will be staying at Sofitel this time round.

Happyfeet1234,

The shopping scene is definitely improving (or at least becoming more diversified) but I'd also save my shopping time for HK. Macau remains beyond HK in this regard.

Depends on what you consider affordable. The better Portuguese restaurants are not cheap nor are they the most expensive restaurants in town. A Lorcha is a good one. Henri's on Sai Van Lake is another that we very much enjoy dining at for the African Chicken. A definite affordable option is the IFT Educational restaurant a at Mung Ha hill (see link).

If you enjoy French cuisine, the Prive restaurant at Sofitel is a bit of a hidden gem in Macau, they have a Art Nouveau lobby bar on the ground floor that we just love as well. Drinks are only ok but the olives and salamis served during happy hour are nice and the decor is lovely.

Last recommendation is for Macau Soul, owned by a couple expats that operate a little wine bar (just 3-4 tables) and serve up some snack food. Very nice, chill out option featuring Portuguese wines (see link).

Hope these are helpful recommendations.
