    Macau with kids and no gambling

    Hi, we've had a crap couple of weeks so want to get away for a weekend. We don't want to fly so thinking of Macau. We want to avoid the casinos and stay somewhere the old town (maybe with access to grass!). Basically we want to wander around outside with the kids and eat lots of good food. Any suggestions for accommodation please? Budget around US300 per night but happy to spend less of course.

    The Westin is a popular place for exactly what you are after.

    I second the Westin. We were there last month with our 8-year old and he had a blast. They have a Kids Club and organize fun activities for the kids. They did this crazy slip and slide on the lawn one afternoon. And the kids went wild sliding on the soapy plastic. Also, its walking distance from Fernandos and we ate there one evening. We went to the Venetian a couple of times. We had passes for the Qube. But it does get crowded and some parents are really pushy. We also saw Zaia.

    Also a vote for the Westin...close to the beach, lots of activities and you can have a little visit to Lord Stowes bakery in cute Coloane village, almost next door to the bakery there's also a nice portuguese called Espace Lisboa. Easy shuttle from the ferry every 30 minutes and best of all, no casino in or near the hotel. 10 minutes to shows at Venetian or City of Dreams if you're so inclined...

    Might want to avoid this weekend though because it'll be a zoo with the Grand Prix...

    I forgot about the grand prix....bummer. Any other places we could go without flying that would fit the bill?

    How about Guangzhou? We've done Chime Long twice. The circus is amazing!

    A step or two down hotel-wise, but how about the Warwick Hotel (or even just a villa rental) on Cheung Chau?

    the grand prix is (very) far from the Westin and the Coloane/Taipa area, so not an issue (unless the hotel is full already of course)

    Most of the hotels and ferries are full on that weekend including the Westin.

    Westin is still showing room availability and I got Cotai Jet tickets for Friday and Sunday just last night. Worth a shot today and I agree that all the activity will be centred on the main part of town, close to the circuit.
