All Around the City
Chinese New Year - always much anticipated - is with us this month! The parade floats of The Parade for Celebration of the Year of the Rooster are a great draw, as are the traditional Firecrackers and Fireworks lighting up a variety of celebrations throughout the city. Valentine's Day and the Chinese Lantern Festival have a special place in everyone's heart, while there's no better way to explore the city than on foot - follow the eight walking tour routes themed Step Out, Experience Macao's Communities on your way to one of the Valentine's Day concerts.
The Feast of Shigandang, Opening of Kun Iam Storehouse and Feast of the God Tou Tei transport one and all back to the roots of folklore, which should also include a visit to No. 80, Rua das Estalagens, the beautifully renovated Patane Library and the many types of museum in Macao.
