MACAU, an autonomous region on the south coast of China, across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong was a Portuguese territory until 1999.

Once a sleepy backwater, with its colonial-era hotels, waterside banyan trees, slightly sleazy nightlife, and occasional gangland killings, it reflects a mix of cultural influences.

Macau has a rich heritage and cultural hybridity unlike no other in China. It may have earned its title as the “Las Vegas of the East” for being the Asian epicenter of gambling, luxury entertainment, and glitz, but its attractions do not stop there.

From the sound of Cantonese that fills its streets with Portuguese names to the ruins of St. Paul’s which still stand tall, and restaurants serving up piping hot bamboo baskets of Chinese dim sum to streetside stalls selling the authentic, trademark Portuguese egg tarts, visiting Macau is a wholly immersive experience.

Here, you are bound to get the best of both worlds as you marveling at the size of its sprawling, shiny casinos and watch Macanese go about their day in Coloane, a laidback village with shipyards and beaches.

It is safe to say that Macau will have your heart before you know it. Take a look at what this vibrant destination has to offer:
