Macau may seem like a playground made for adults with its luxe hotels and glittering casinos, but there are plenty of children-centred activities too. Whether you’re looking for a playdate location, an afternoon playing bumper cars or to throw the most extravagant birthday party in existence, we’ve compiled the top six playtime locations in the city so our mom and dad readers can rest easy and relax in both rain or shine, indoor and outdoor family fun.
Opened in 2017, Poli Cafe, a Robocar Poli themed restaurant is Macau's first large scaled child’s dream restaurant. While parents enjoy their delicious food such as hamburger, French apple foie gras saute, pizza, Portuguese sea food rice, drinks and dessert, kids can roam free at the restaurant’s playing area, filled with slides, a mini ball pit, electronic game, large lego and Poli toys during weekdays, on weekends, there will be a minimum charge but only $100 for adults and $80 for children on food, that restaurant can satisfy both for you and your kids!
