    For bungee jumping and other adrenaline pumping activities, visit macautower.com.mo.

    Drinks and food, depends on your mood and budget. In Macau around Senado Square (or San Malo to locals which btw is near the St. Paul Ruins already) you can sample excellent Portuguese food in Platao or go a bit farther and try Alfonso III or Restaurante Littoral. Visit some museums and if you're into it, try The Art Museum in NAPE and have a drink or two on one of the bars around the area (it's called Macau LKF but don't set your expectation high as it is not quite there yet). You can do The Grand Prix and Wine Museums in one go as they're housed in the same building.

    Go to Coloane Village and look for the quaint little chapel of St. Francis then if you're hungry try the restaurant called Nga Tim right in fron of it for no-frills Macanese and fresh seafood dishes, or if you're into cafe, try Lord Stow's Garden Cafe where you can sit and have a breather while devouring they're famous egg tart. Then head to Hac-sa beach if you'd like to see how the Chinese mainland tour groups spend their er... day tour.

    Still have the energy, try your hands on go-kart racing before heading back to Macau and sample the casinos or just have a drink or two and listen to the live band (their drinks are cheap [with the exception of Wynn's] if you're not bothered by smokers and noise) or head to the Fisherman's Wharf and try some of the f&b outlets that just sprung recently. At least you're near the HK ferry terminal already.

    Have fun!

    Hi, thanks for this. Very helpful.

    In terms of go-karting, exactly where is that located from where I get off the ferry?

    It's in Cotai (between Coloane and Taipa). Guide maps are available at the ferry terminal right after coming out of the customs.

    15 minutes by taxi

    By bus it is a bit more tricky few buses go to Coloane except 25/26/21 (from memory, they are maybe more now) and takes about 20/25 minutes

    Are there any non-smoking casinos in Macau? Last time I went, I could barely breathe, and I came out smelling like shit...

    There is no law whatsoever against smoking in Macao so you can only hold your breath ;-)
