    But if I had to go I would go to Qingdao or Nanjing to drink TSINGTAO beer
    What about Pfizer vaccination and home return permit holders ?

    In recent years though, Macau had moved to incorporate more variety in what they offered to visitors. They are following the Las Vegas model in creating more broadway-styled musical, magic and circus shows. That made me interested now in going to Macau, for the shows.
    Yeah pretty much the same for us, my wife and I like live music, various theatrical shows and of course the Portugese food that was on offer. The Casino side of it never interested us either.

    If you have Chinese nationality and hold an HRP then you may enter China, regardless of whether you have to quarantine or not. Obviously if you went today you'd have to quarantine for 14+7 days, and once the quarantine-free program starts then you can go quarantine-free if you satisfy the program rules.

    As a Chinese national there are no requirements to take any vaccines, Pfizer or Sinovac.

    Macau has very stringent conditions on foreign nationals entering. From most places in the world, foreign nationals cannot enter Macau at all. While those travelling from China and Hong Kong can only enter Macau if they hold residency in Macau or satisfy one of a very narrow set of exemptions.

    However, there is a curious hole in Macau's entry rules for Hong Kong permanent residents. Foreign nationals with HK permanent ID cards can enter Macau as a Hong Kong resident as opposed to a foreign national. As far as I know this hole does not extend to foreign nationals who hold Chinese permanent resident cards.

    I wouldn't call it a curious hole. HKPR could always travel to Macau with just the HKID card. Mainlanders could never travel with just their ID cards. They have to apply for a HK/Macau travel permit. I am not sure if a foreigner can apply for that permit as you can only apply wherever your Hukou is.

    I'd go to China just so I wouldn't have to wear a mask all the time!

    Yes the fact that you can travel to Macau with just a HK PR ID card and no passport is probably the key.

    On the other note unless a foreigner naturalises, there is no way to get the Macau Travel Permit, not even if they are a permanent resident of China.
