Airport Overview

macau airport

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Macau International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A busy and modern single-terminal international airport with a variety of shopping and dining options.
  • All food options close for the night, so have snacks and beverages handy for late-night snacking, if you plan to spend the night!
  • Air-conditioning set to FULL BLAST! Have a sweater or travel blanket handy to keep warm!

Where to Sleep

  • Reviewers in the past were able to sleep comfortably on the padded benches in this airport. These benches have all been replaced with cold, hard metal benches with armrests, probably to discourage lying down. You are welcome to sleep in this airport as long as you are sitting upright. Don’t even think about sleeping on the floor!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
