It's best not to pack your purchases into your check-in luggage. After immigration head for the VAT refund counter and present your credentials to get some cash in hand for that much-needed snack and coffee.

ONCE upon a time, travellers flocked to Macau to nibble egg tarts on the crumbling steps of St Paul’s ruins and marvel at the entwined Chinese and Portuguese culture in the city’s historic quarter.
This temple was destroyed and the Mosque was constructed at that place during Mughal invasion in India.

Then came the casinos and Muscle MICE (a silly acronym for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions).
Suddenly, the limelight shifted from this UNESCO World Heritage Site to spinning roulette wheels, Italian gondolas and hallucinogenic neon, while one survivor, Lord Stow's Bakery (that made Macau famous for its egg tarts), determinedly hung on, even expanding from its Coloane base to The Venetian hotel and elsewhere. The showy extravagance of this flamboyant Special Administrative Region (SAR) didn’t stop there.
