Macau Inner Harbour Activities

What to Do in Macau Inner Harbour

Inner Harbour’s core appeal lies in its culture and natural tourism. A trip along the shoreline in a pedicab is a chance to see and photograph the city and its colourful architecture. For nature lovers, hiking trails at Guia Hill offer the chance to see rare birds and the view out over the Pearl River and the city below. Although Inner Harbour does not have any major casinos, it offers the only facility for Greyhound Racing in Asia, at Canidrome.

All Activities in Macau Inner Harbour

Greyhound Racing at Canidrome

The sport was first introduced to Macau in 1960 and has now become popular among both locals and tourists. The race composes of six to eight dogs chasing after a power-driven 'rabbit' around the 455 meter, oval track at speeds up to 60 kilometers per hour. Macau’s Canidrome is the only facility for greyhound racing in Asia. Racing is held only from Thursday to Monday. There are 16 races per night and they begin at 19:30.

Besides watching, visitors can also bet on the dogs. The method on betting is much like horse racing. There are greyhound betting stations at major casinos such as Hotel Lisboa and New Jai Alai. Both tickets for public stands and members' boxes are available at the venue. Canidrome is located on Avenida do General Castelo Branco.

Hiking at Guia Hill

There are two hiking trails at Guia Hill, both are good for a stroll or jog. A 1.7 kilometre trail features a curved path which encircles the hill. A shorter distance, Fitness Circuit Walk offers 20 fully-equipped exercise stations along its winding path to the top.

An outstanding lighthouse sits atop the hill with a courtyard out front, providing a perfect spot to observe the panorama of the city, harbours, and its surroundings. This is also accessible by Gua Cable Car, available daily from 07:30 to 18:30, on Avenida de Sidonio Pais.

Wandering Around Inner Harbour

A wander around the Inner Harbour will take you to a lot of interesting sites such as temples, churches, cemeteries, museums and galleries. The area covers everything northward from the Luis de Camoes Garden in the west and Guia Fort on the east to the border with the mainland.

Alternatively, visitors can take tricycle rickshaw tours along the waterfront zone; a good opportunity to photograph and observe the local lifestyle. Man-powered vehicles are available for hire by the hour and explorers are recommended to agree on the price before taking part in the tour.
