Lives in Alicante, Spain
Since Oct 2008
I am a writer and have been living in Spain for 15 years. I love its culture, food, landscape and the beaches of course. I'm constantly finding out new things.

The largest casino in the world, the Venetian Macau is housed within a luxurious resort of the same name, and offers fine dining and first-class hotel accommodation. There are 3,000 gaming machines, as well as 870 tables and poker games where you can try your luck; plus a large variety of dining options when you need to refuel. This is a great chance to dress up in your finest and see if you can win back the price of your romantic break!
You'll feel like Venice has been transported to Asia at this lovely replica of the romantic Italian city. Stroll arm in arm along its canals and over its bridges, snuggle up on a gondola ride, and browse its selection of shops and restaurants.
A fabulous place for a romantic stroll before lunch is Senado Square. It looks just like a typical Mediterranean square, with its tiled, wave-like pavement and neo-Classical buildings. The square is a useful reminder that Macau was ruled by the Portuguese until 1999.
Fisherman’s Wharf is an entertainment complex situated on the harbor, with restaurants, shops, a casino, and a conference and exhibition center. Couples will find plenty of interesting shops and restaurants to choose from here, built in architectural styles from around the world.
What could be more romantic than strolling around Coloane Village, with its narrow streets and temples that create a nostalgic olde-worlde atmosphere? Stroll along the waterfront and visit its charming old wharf.
Hold tight to one another as you zoom up the giddy heights of the Macau Tower, standing at 338 meters tall, with a revolving restaurant situated at 223 meters. A great place to visit during the day to see all the landmark buildings; and at night for the lights. Plus, daredevils can enjoy the adrenaline rush of the Skywalk X by walking outside the tower without a handrail, and you can even try a tandem SkyJump!
Enjoy a relaxing stroll around these beautiful gardens built by Lou Kau, a wealthy 19th century Chinese merchant. Modeled on a famous Chinese classical garden, with bamboo, ponds, and a large pavilion — this is a beautiful setting in which to enjoy natural beauty with a loved one.
The first thing you notice here is the chic glass wall where you can enjoy far-reaching views over the South China Sea, as well as Nam Van Lake, which hosts spectacular water and light shows. The menu includes both Portuguese and Macanese dishes with a modern twist, such as Portuguese cod, roast duck with rice, and Cantonese classics like dim sum.
If you love dance and drama, The House of Dancing Water is the right show for you. It tells the tale of a a fisherman on the coast of Coloane, who is soon swept up by a whirlpool into a land of legends, and has to save a beautiful Princess from a cruel Queen. Fingers crossed for a 'happily ever after!'
