2 days, 1 night in Macau

I got some great advice from this forum (and the HK one) last year and am back to ask for your help again!

I didn't make it HK or Macau in the end last year..

However we are flying out to HK later tonight and have already booked at the Royal Macau for one night next week

What we'd like to know is where is good nearby that would be suitable for a decent breakfast (the hotel price was a bit too much!)? What about restaurants etc for the evening? What is on offer??

Also can we use or HK$ or do we need to change to MOP?

Lastly, is it easy to get to the south island (Taipa etc), I read it's by bus? Is it easy to work out? Is it worth it??

We are thinking of doing the big touristy things on the first day when we arrive, St Paul's Ruins, Sendo Square etc.. and obviously we are staying near Guia Fort/hill (I believe!).

Is it easy to get to A-Ma Temple?

Thanks all :)

Yes Hotel Royal is near Guia Fort.

Re: Breakfast

One way is to walk around the hotel a little bit when you arrive and see if you find anything that strikes your fancy. Check on their menus. It is a residential neighborhood. There bounds to be something.

The famous Margaret's Cafe (Portuguese egg tarts and breakfast, coffee) is about 750 meters away if you want to walk there. Here is the map:

Hong Kong dollars should be okay in most places.

A-Ma Temple from your hotel would be about 1 hour by walking. Or take a taxi.

From your hotel, going to the Taipa/Cotai areas, you can take bus 25 or 25X. Fare MOP 6.4. Need to walk 1 short block to the bus stop. Bus stop to use is:

(M270) PAVILHÃO POLIDESPORTIVO TAP SEAC

Bus stop to alight depends on where you are going. If The Venetian Hotel, then:

(T375) EST. DO ISTMO/ CITY OF DREAMS

Here's the map:

The ride takes about 40 minutes?

HPFT1234 has provided transport information. Is it worth visiting? Very much depends on your interests and time. You can certainly spend your entire time on the peninsula, especially if you like the World Heritage buildings and museums there. There are nice districts and areas on the peninsula that are very nice to visit, like St. Lazarus so you don't have to to go to Taipa just to see something new and/or different.

However, there is some nice stuff to so/see/eat there as well so you may want to consider it. See the trip list provided above. It provides a list of some attractions worth seeing in and around Taipa.
