Eye-catching tiles make up the floor of the Largo do Senado (Senate Square), which provides the city's focal point and is the start of most people's exploration of Macau. From the central fountain, visitor's glance falls upon stunning colonial architecture, including the imposing Leal Senado, the Santa Casa da Misericordia, and finally Sao Domingos Church. Lanes leading away from the square unveil markets, vibrant streets and rows of gift shops.
The Macau Ferry Terminal is filled with signposts for this Western-style department store, which is no more than a few minutes walk away. Spacious and bright, there is a choice of brand names that include international as well as Asian designers. An array of cosmetics and perfume counters is based on the ground floor, while the first floor is given over almost entirely to men's and children's wear and toys. Further up are household goods, electrical items and a food plaza to stave off those shopping-induced hunger pangs.
Shopping is hard work! So, if the hunger pangs have set in after a long day, head for this small but colorful bakery at the ground floor of Landmark Macau. Filling the glass-fronted counter are a number of delicious temptations. For those with a taste for savories, there are plenty of filled rolls, sandwiches, croissants and pies. Anyone craving something sweeter can choose from a decadent selection of cakes and pastries. The bakery does whole cakes as well, just right for that special occasion. Purchases can be packed as a take-away for those in a rush. Alternatively, there are some comfortable chairs and tables for eating in.
For such a small island, Macau is not short of luxury shopping options - the One Central Mall, conveniently linked to the MGM Macau and the Mandarin Oriental, is the original mall - and, many claim, the best. The mall itself is huge - over 200,00 square feet - and it has a wealth of luxury brands within, including Hugo Boss, Celine, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs. There are many excellent dining options and on Fridays and Saturdays, dedicated shoppers can shop until midnight. Check the website for more details.
