About Macau

Located on the southeast coast of Mainland China, Macau has been a point of intersection between Chinese and Western culture for four hundred years, particularly Portuguese culture. You can see the fusion of cultural essences in the details, patterns, and imagery used in Macau’s architecture, nearly everywhere you look. Of particular interest is the Historic Centre of Macau, where the old buildings still thrive, teeming with life and brimming with the mysteries of Macau’s multicultural heritage. The area covered by Macau is quite small, only 29.9 square kilometers, but its food, ancient architecture, shopping and rich nightlife attract countless tourists.

Macau
Macau is a glittering oasis on the Pearl River Delta. The tiny territory covers just over 32 square kilometers, yet it contains a multitude of rich experiences. Narrow streets and tight corners conceal stately Portuguese colonial-era architecture. Across the harbor, towering casinos draw visitors from around the world. The famous Ruins of St. Paul’s stand solemn watch as visitors wander nearby markets and shops. Though Macau is able to claim the title of the world’s most densely populated territory, there’s a tranquility to be found in the fishing villages around Coloane. When you visit Macau, you will instantly recognize the charm and hopefully discover all this unique destination has to offer.
