Travel to Macau

Although Macau is overseen by China, it has more in common with Hong Kong since it is administered separately. Located on the Pearl River, it was the last of the colonies to be relinquished, with the transfer being completed in 1999. There is a distinctive Portuguese influence that can be seen throughout the structure and culture of the city. Macau requires separate entry requirements from China or Hong Kong.

The city gained fame because of its casinos, but the fusion of Europe and China within its borders has created a one-of-a-kind experience. A walking tour of the city is worth the investment. With temples, fortresses, and other buildings offering Chinese and Portuguese characteristics, the narrow alleys of the city are the perfect place to find a hidden gen or two.

You must make time for the atmosphere at Rua da Tercena. This area serves as the flea market for Macau and you’ll find several art galleries, antique shops, and casual vendors all with something interesting being offered. When you’ve had enough retail therapy, stop for a break in one of the many “pocket gardens” that can be found in the area.

Several museums are available to tour in Macau as well. Try the Taipa Houses Museum and the Macau Museum if you only have time for a couple of options. By far, however, the largest industry in Macau is gambling. Numerous international brands have come into the city since 2004, including traditional Las Vegas favorites like Wynn and MGM Grand. You’ll find restaurants, shows, bars, and clubs in a wide variety of styles.
