Is tap water in Macau safe to drink?

Water samples at some 90 sampling points across the supply network are randomly selected by Macao Water and the Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau (IACM) lab on a daily basis.

Where does your water come from?

In end-2016, Macau’s total population was 644,900 and annual water consumption hit 86.70 million cubic meters. The number had been steadily rising. “Over the past decade, Macau’s population has increased by nearly 26 percent and water consumption has increased by 44 percent, with the [Taipa and Coloane] islands seeing the most significant growth in water consumption."

Red panda day out

Most Macau visitors know that in the heart of Coloane live two giant pandas and their offspring. But many are not aware that two red pandas have recently taken up residence alongside the bigger animals at the Seac Pai Van Park.
