Our Macau Travel Guide was created to help you discover this charming city, so you can get much more out of your visit.


Many travelers consider Macau as Hong Kong's little sister (and, therefore, as a smaller version of Hong Kong) and as a place that has nothing much to offer, other than gambling...


Both assumptions are wrong : Macau is very different from Hong Kong and has a lot to offer to its visitors... both gamblers and non gamblers. 


The tiny territory, which covers an area of just more than 25 square kilometers, features a fascinating blend of cultures that developed in more than 450 years of Portuguese presence and colonialism... Ancient Chinese temples stand next to Baroque style churches, old colonial buildings are shadowed by modern, glittering skyscrapers, traditional Chinese teahouses coexist alongside Portuguese cafés and old cobbled walkways stand in contrast to the ultra-modern bridges...


The Historic Centre of Macau,

a recently declared UNESCO World Heritage Site, is composed of sites that showcase the unique and mixed European-Asian cultural heritage of Macau.  Other than visiting the old city with its fascinating buildings and streets, the visitor to Macau can also enjoy some good beaches, sport and cultural activities and even, believe it or not, some nice nature walks... Our Macau Travel Guide will take you to all these places and more...


Macau is, obviously, the Far East's Las Vegas.  Dazzling neon signs attract patrons to walk in and spend their money, and a visit to one of the city's classic casinos is a must-do, whether you are a gambler or not...
