Set along Mainland China’s southeastern coast, the former Portuguese enclave of Macau is a small Chinese territory stretching over 30 square kilometres. Macau comprises the Macau Peninsula and the islands of Taipa and Coloane, which are connected by the Cotai Strip. Known as the world’s top gambling city, ‘The Las Vegas of Asia’ features flashy casinos and modern malls alongside traditional fortresses, ancient Chinese temples, and old faded mansions. This perfect fusion of East and West offers visitors a unique blend of Portuguese and Chinese cultural influences. Popular attractions include: the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of A-Ma Temple and the Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral; the 400-year-old Monte Fort, offering spectacular sunset views; and the Senado Square, which is the urban centre of Macau boasting traditional Portuguese cobblestone paving lined with Neoclassical buildings.
