Due to tourism being the main economic industry in Macau a majority of the larger hotels provide free round trip shuttle bus services which cover the major tourist sites including the airport, Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal, Taipa Temporary Ferry Terminal and other sites. The frequency for each route is usually 15 minutes. The taxi system is noted for having a notoriously poor reputation among tourists and even locals. Common complaints include "constant overcharging, refusal of passengers when the destination or passenger type does not suit the driver, circuitous routes and even violent behaviour".
It is planned to open in Macau has one active international airport, known as Macau International Airport located at the eastern end of Taipa and neighbouring waters. The airport used to serve as one of the main transit hubs for passengers travelling between mainland China and Taiwan , but now with the introduction of direct flights between those two regions, passenger traffic in this regard has lessened. In , the airport handled about 5 million passengers.
The mixing of the Chinese and Portuguese cultures and religious traditions for more than four centuries has left Macau with an inimitable collection of holidays, festivals and events. The biggest event of the year is the Macau Grand Prix in November,  when the main streets in Macau Peninsula are converted to a racetrack bearing similarities with the Monaco Grand Prix.
The Lunar Chinese New Year is the most important traditional festival and celebration normally takes place in late January or early February. All events and festivities of the year end with Winter Solstice in December. Macau preserves many historical properties in the urban area. Local cooking in Macau consists of a blend of Cantonese and Portuguese cuisines. Many unique dishes resulted from the spice blends that the wives of Portuguese sailors used in an attempt to replicate European dishes.
Pork chop bun , ginger milk and Portuguese-style egg tart are also very popular in Macau. In general, football soccer has the greatest popularity in Macau, which has a representative international side, Macau national football team.
Another common sport is rink hockey , which is often practised by the Portuguese. Macau also has a basketball team , which qualified for the Asian Basketball Championship twice. The automobile racing event Macau Grand Prix is arguably the most important international sporting event in Macau, mainly with Formula 3 , motorcycle road racing and touring car races.
The racecourse has a 15, seater grandstand. Macau is twinned with: Administrative divisions of the Republic of China instead.

Just upon entering the lobby, it is uneasy to escape from the attraction of twenty-five thousands pieces of Austrian crystals hanging on the lobby ceiling, inter-changing from one colour to another by means of its computerized system. What are the usual opening times at these saunas? I have only 1 day and want to make the most. Ur help is appreciated. They stop in the early hours of the next morning. It would be hard for me to select just one sauna.
Rio is often said to be the best in Macau. Enzo pls advice what if the we ejaculate while bathing , how many shots are allowed and is anal experience available in these saunas. It depends on the place and person. Most sessions include one shot but they can include more. I guess for the super expensive price, it makes sense, considering you pay only HKD for one shot in hong kong…. What do you find confusing?
Models charge HKD in the saunas. There are cheaper options like apartment brothels but then there are cheaper options in other countries too. Read my last post about Venezuela.
Sex sells for a little over a dollar there now. Thanks for the reply. I thought maybe there are some alternatives to the saunas. There are many alternatives. WeChat chicks want but can be negotiated down a little.
They are among the cheaper service providers in the area. Hey Enzo, dig the blog. In macau right now. Also, where do you find wechat ladies??
Or apt brothels for that matter. I checked out darling 1 and it was the bees knees. Quick question, where the hell is familia nobre?
If you have the Wechat app on your phone you can find people near you. The hookers are pretty obvious. The racetrack was broken up. The saunas are different. The Galaxy Hotel is on Taipa. Most of the saunas are on the main Macau Peninsula. What are relatively discrete options available to someone who can only get away from a group for a few hours at most? This is for Macau in general, not just near anywhere in particular. Also, would it be weird to pay saunas completely in cash?
They are pretty expensive, but it might be better to not have it on a credit card. Is there any way to increase privacy even more while there? I am mainly talking about privacy and procedure, assuming some basic research is done ahead of time on sites like this one.
Customers walk in, select a woman, do the deed then leave. Cash is king and common. People walk around with stacks. Credit cards are accepted in most places other than Hou Va.
They usually charge an extra fee for credit cards. I like Emperor but the other places beat it out in my opinion. When you make your own website you can put whatever you want on it. Great Site and info. Any brothers wanna hang at that time? But are there any cases on STDs. Since those places are expansive with lower STD rate in Macau, then the chances can be lowered, right? Some men have a great time at awesome prices, while others are left very disappointed for the money they pay.
Apparently there can be a shortage of peripheral staff like thigh massage girls during some hours and sometimes lineups do not have a good selection of attractive women. Have you heard about that? Are there any more places that you like other these five saunas? Anyway, are the prices you have in that picture still about right for FN?
People do not go to Macau to save money, but it is good to know how much money to bring. Finally, what are the different types of massages at the top of the picture?
I have never had a bad experience in Familia Nobre. The prices are still accurate and the massages are usually what they sound like. A Japanese massage is a massage by a Japanese woman though they are usually not really Japanese. What are your thoughts on the following places: Have you ever been to them? How do they stack up to the rest? Emperor is worn out and quiet but has some decent full service ladies.
East Castle is small and expensive but it has some hot Chinese full service chicks. Familia Nombre is an excellent I stress excellent choice. I let them choose for massage and pop. Although she spoke no English Vietnamese she was possibly the most beautiful, built young woman I have ever seen. Again, thank you Enzo. Keep up the good work. Thanks for the comment. Have you ever seen a brown guy getting action at any of these saunas? I believe I read in one of your other posts that dark skinned folks had trouble getting into similar places hearsay.
Hi I am going to Macau in May ,I would be staying in Venetian can u please advice which place to go nearby Venetian for soapy or happy ending massage.. Hey Enzo, while its an interesting info that you have posted..
There are apparently some services out there but most are underground or located in Western Countries. There are things like Host Bars in Japan but it would be tough to get much out of them without having a group of friends who all speak Japanese. Soooooo… can I bring my girlfriend along? She luvs this shit. Are either of these possible? These places are only for male customers. Great info with depth!
Is it possible to be charged 25,MOP for two guys just a few hours of spending time at 18? Guys are charged for the services they receive not the amount of time they spend in a sauna. I appreciate all the info. What I am still uncertain of is… do the saunas offer simple happy ending massages?
Not looking to jump in all the way my first visit. At the places where they are done in the open there is usually an option to get a full massage with happy ending in a private room but some masseuses will finish guys off secretly if they ask for it. At the places where they are done in private there is usually an option to finish for a little extra money. There are regular non sexual saunas around open to all adults though.
Hi Enzo, brilliant site, thanks for the effort bro! I have a couple questions: Not even a civilian on the sidewalk.
Rio is one of the most expensive saunas. What a great effort done by you. I will be visting macau and have a limited budget.
I am low on budget can i just take full service directly what will it cost.. None of them are cheap. I made this post on cheap sex in Macau. Do you know what saunas are good in terms of the variety of races of the women?
While a lot of the full service women are probably going to be good quality ladies from mainland China and Asian countries like Indonesia, having more options is always a plus. What if you just happen to be in the mood for Japanese, Russian, or African? How common is it for saunas to have shower girls and how much does it cost lately?
It must be a bit weird having it done in the open where anyone can see. Finally you made a post before about safer sex, but what are your thoughts on Macau sauna girls? Is swallowing or anal ever on the table? Mainly Chinese and Vietnamese women do.
Some also have the occasional Korean. There are more Mongolians pretending to be Korean and Japanese. There are also some Russians in a few places but those too are often people from places like Kazahkstan pretending to be Russian. Familia Nobre has had the same African chick working for years.
Many of the saunas have shower girls who are usually Vietnamese and sometimes Chinese. In some places they do showers in the open in some places they have private table showers. Everyone showers in public before entering and the pools and hot tubs are all nude and public. In a lot of the saunas guys get jacked off in public too. The women are supposedly regularly tested. Just wanted to ask you about that menu option that you posted.
Not quite following the menu. But no one really walks in, does that, then leaves. There are places that specialize in that and they are a lot cheaper. Hi Enzo , Thanks for a great article. Is your golden sauna above sauna 18?
I speak about a dozens common Chinese phrases. Most of the places give discounts on second and third girls. Most of the so-called Taiwanese, Koreans, and Japanese are not from those countries.
