The island of Taipa is directly south of peninsular Macau and connected to it by three long bridges. Macau's two universities, scenic hiking trails, and international airport are all here. Like downtown Macau, Taipa has been greatly developed in the past few years, yet it retains a visual balance between old Macau charm and modern sleekness. Try to visit on a weekend, so you can shop for clothing and crafts in the traditional flea market that's held every Sunday from morning to evening in Taipa Village.
