Macau is home to some unique charms of both Chinese and Portuguese cultures. Cohering Macau’s cityscape, the architecture style of Grande Praça at MGM Macau is also intertwined with some very Portuguese architectural features. From July 7, the “Sino-Portuguese Cultural Tour” will start leading guests into a journey of Sino-Portuguese aesthetics filled with art, architecture, music, gastronomy and craft at MGM Macau.
The experience begins with a guided tour, where guests will be toured around the hotel starting from Grande Praça, a miniature of Lisbon, to get an insight into the Sino-Portuguese history and culture through architecture wonders, and most importantly discovering a handful of romantic photo-taking spots along the tour.
