Health and Safety

Generally, Macau is a safe place to visit. Petty crimes such as pick-pocketing are the main grievances noted by travelers. Use common sense, such as using ATMs inside buildings, not wearing flashy jewelry and keeping bags close by to avoid problems.

No vaccinations are necessary to enter Macau and there are no specific health concerns. The usual precautions against heat stroke and dehydration apply, as well using insect repellent to avoid mosquito bites.
