The majestic Macau Tower is more than just a place to dine and shop, it is the perfect spot to catch the firework show due to its height of 338 meters. Adventure seekers can try the ‘Firework Skywalk’ by the AJ Hackett company that gives you a front-row view while harnessed to the building.
Get a glimpse of the show from the top of the 3rd highest hill in Macao that is also home to the Chapel of Our Lady of Penha. It hosts a spectacular view of the waters and the Macau Tower for you to see the whole show like a cinema in the sky.
This stretch of road surrounds Nam Van Lake where the paved street is a perfect platform to catch the fireworks. Bonus points for easy access as neighbouring hotels like Wynn and MGM offer shuttle service around the area. You can even do a bit of shopping at malls like One Central Macao, located along the road.
The road across the lake from Macao Tower is a windy strip perched with trees and park benches that are great for strolling on a nice day. Grab a bite at waterfront eateries like Ali Curry House and 1826 Restaurante before heading outside to catch an obstructed view of the fireworks.
The oldest bridge to connect Macao and Taipa happens to be a strategic spot to catch the light show in the sky. Only public transport vehicles are allowed to cross but the pedestrian walk is open for a beautiful perspective of the fireworks. Note that the bridge spans almost 2.6km but it's worth it for that view.
If you want to catch the light show with a cocktail in hand, a panoramic sight can be seen through the bar at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Stunning floor to ceiling windows allow for a picturesque backdrop while the plush decor gives a luxurious ambience for visitors to eat and drink.
Spectators at Taipa have their own ports and Altira Macao by the waters was designed to maximise the view of the Macao Peninsula where the show is held. The hotel offers a special dining experience at their Yi Pavilion for intimate dinners. The pavilion has 270° panorama views and an outdoor lounge for a closer look.
This waterfront leisure hub is located on another avenue along Nam Van Lake called Avenida Panoramica do Lago Nam Van. For fun, you can rent a pedal boat, shop for souvenirs or attend creative workshops at the hub. It is right by the waters with enough pavement space to comfortably catch the contest.
Right by the waters, catching the fireworks while being framed by a bronze goddess is a magical way to catch the show. The 20m high statue of Kun lam or the goddess of mercy stands majestically on a causeway along Avenida Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. The structure also doubles as a contemplation and information room for visitors.
