We recommend the water bicycles for fun on the lake. Water bicycling is MOP $20 for a two-seat pedal boat and MOP $40 for a four-seat pedal boat, both prices for thirty minutes. Stroll along the freshly decorated shop row, with new installations and graffiti, or explore the craft market. There is also a laser performance every weekend.
