Lonely Planet Macau City Guide
"...these smart and exhaustively researched guides have become the gold standard for serious, independent travelers." - San Francisco Chronicle
Try your luck in the ‘Vegas of the East,’ with Lonely Planet’s Macau City Guide on your iPhone. Long seen as a poor cousin to flashy neighbour Hong Kong, this former Portuguese trading settlement is now recognised as a major destination in its own right. And if you want to see the Queen of the Pearl River Delta in all her tawdry, eccentric glory, you’ve just got to get the world’s leading guidebook publisher on your phone.
But why go with LP? After all, any fool can stumble across Sands Macau (the world’s largest casino), amble through the UNESCO-listed historic centre, or play pirates on the walls of Mount Fortress. But can any fool use GPS to pinpoint their exact location, search through hundreds of the best bars, hotels, shops, sights and restaurants in the area, follow walking tours carefully plotted by our resident authors, or bone up on Macau’s fascinating East-meets-West history? So long as that fool buys this app … Cool!
