I traveled to Macau in mid December. I went around the World Heritage sites in Macau Peninsula in the first half and mega resorts in Cotai area in the latter half. In this article, I will write about Studio City Macau as part of Day 3.

Following the previous post, I moved from the Parisian Macao to Studio City Macau. Studio City Macau is located as follows.
“Studio City Macau (澳門新濠影匯)” is a casino resort opened in 2015 and themed on Hollywood. It was jointly funded and “Melco Resorts & Entertainment”, which is a casino operating company in Hong Kong and owns 60% stake, runs the casino resort as the largest shareholder.
Walking around Studio City Macau
There was a lavish signage of “Studio City” outside the building.
The entrance was also gorgeous.
When I entered the building, this cafe “Joyride” came into my sight.
The cafe reproduces the dazzling world of 1950s America and there were tables with designs of classic American cars.
The casino resort had a shopping mall called “the Boulevard at studio city”.
I found a signage of “Times Square – 42nd Street”, a New York City Subway station.
The building was filled with American taste as a whole.
I saw dinosaurs.
A variety of American cars.
I will go outside.
Cotai Strip, the main street. Along with Sands Cotai Central where I have been staying, I saw MGM Cotai, which was opened in 2018.
I will take photos of the appearance of Studio City Macau.
As you can see, Studio City Macau was lighted up in the evening.
In addition, laser shows were performed.
From the center.
As a main attraction of Studio City Macau, there was a figure-8 Ferris wheel “Golden Reel”. It was just closed around this time and I will try it tomorrow.
I left Studio City Macau and will return to Sands Cotai Central where I have been staying.
On the way, I took a photo of the Parisian Macao.
The Venetian Macao.
As I went around just the inside of the Venetian Macao during the day, I will take photos of its exterior.
The Venetian Macao was connected with Sands Cotai Central via a connecting bridge.
There were observation decks at the Venetian Macao side and the Sands Cotai Central side respectively, so I took several photos.

On the contrary, view of the Venetian Macao from the Sands Cotai Central side.
In addition, view of the Parisian Macao, which was located adjacent to the Venetian Macao.
Lastly, I stopped by “Cotai Travel” in Sands Cotai Central.
While I came to Macau from Hong Kong via “Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge” (see the related article), I plan to move from Taipa Ferry terminal to Hong Kong International Airport by ferry. I haven’t booked a ferry ticket yet, so I bought it here.
Then, the third day of my Macau trip was over.
That’s it for the article about Studio City Macau as part of Day 3.
As I didn’t have enough information about Studio City Macau and knew its operating company for the first time, I didn’t expect Studio City Macau so much. However, I enjoyed Studio City Macau more than I expected. It was filled with Hollywood-themed objects and the building was lighted up in the evening. Although Studio City Macau was located at the south end of Cotai Strip, I think it’s worth a visit 🙂
In the next article, I will write about City of Dreams as part of Day 4.
