Travel: Macau

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Hi there,

Can anyone please advise whether Macau is a conducive place to bring a 3 yr old in September??

Was surfing about Macau and came across this indoor playground called Kids' City at Hard Rock Hotel, City of Dreams. Any comments about this place??

May be going to Macau and toying with the idea of bringing my DS, so some constructive input/feedback will be very much appreciated.

MTIA :D

Not sure if Macau is a fun place for kids so young. It sounds more like a big playground for adults.

But if this Kids City is at Hard Rock Hotel, then maybe it's more child-friendly? :? Anyway, why don't u try going to www.tripadvisor.com to read what other travellers say about the place. U might get some insightful feedback.

Hope you'll find out what u want :xedfingers:

there isn't really anything in Macau that would interest the kids

even for adults, one day will do

been there a few times because company meetings were scheduled to be there

for the time and money involved, might as well go over to HK Disney...(not for the want of it, just that Macau is really barren as a kids' destination)

Thanks verykiasu2010,

Thats what I have been told too - that a day trip is more than enough. Just that DH is going there for work and invited us along. Staying in a good hotel too. Therefore was pondering whether to take up the offer or not, since food and accomodation is kinda covered :D
