The Cotai Strip is Asia’s answer to Las Vegas. Located on a strip of reclaimed land that connects Macau’s islands of Taipa and Coloane, the Cotai Strip is fast becoming Asia’s leading tourism destination. Inspired by the glitz and excitement of the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada, USA, developers are spicing up this gambling hotspot with luxury hotels, Las Vegas-style casinos, world-class entertainment and brand-name and designer shopping.

Cotai Strip Location

There are three bridges connecting Macau to Taipa and Cotai (Cotai Strip area). The Macau-Taipa Bridge, the Friendship Bridge, and the Sai Van Bridge. The Friendship Bridge is the longest bridge at 4.4 KM in length and it leads directly to Macau International Airport which is located on the Island of Taipa.

The Sai Van Bridge is 2.2 KM in length and opened in January 2005, is the first cable stayed bridge in Macau. The double deck bridge has six lanes in the upper deck and four in the lower - the lower deck only opens when a typhoon hits the city. This bridge runs from the western tip of the Cotai Strip to Western Macau.

The Macau-Taipa Bridge runs 2.5 KM in length and runs right in the middle of the other two Bridges from Central Macau to Central Taipa leading into the Cotai Strip. This bridge runs next to the Wynn Macau and the new MGM Grand Macau.

Besides the Barrier Gate (Portas do Cerco), people can access Mainland China through the Cotai Frontier Post. Immigration and Customs are located in the reclaimed area between the islands of Taipa and Coloane.

Getting there
Among the buses that go to Cotai Strip include Nos. 15, 21, 21A, 25, 26 and 26A.
