The busiest and largest shopping areas are located in the Macau Peninsula, which features a range of modern shopping malls, markets, boutiques and souvenir shops. Water lilies are the municipal flower of Macau, and porcelain water lily ornaments are popular buys here. Also popular items include coins, stamps and jewelry.
Many shoppers head straight to Senado Square, while other streets specialize in items such as traditional Chinese medicine shops, teashops and antiques.
This is a great place to purchase popular designer brands at low prices. Some of the best-known brands here include NINE WEST and G2000 and there are plenty of snack stalls in this area where shoppers can refuel before heading back into the thick of things.
Rua S Domingo
Just to the north of Senado Square, this long road is full of clothing and cosmetic stores. Shoppers will find prominent stores such as Body Shop, Sa Sa and Angel. This area is popular with office workers and schoolgirls, so it is best to visit on weekdays in the morning or early afternoon.
