Se hva du kan gjøre og oppleve i Macau

Macau has a colourful palette and a plethora of sites despite occupying just 30.8sq km of the Chinese mainland. From neon-lit casinos to dusky markets, cobbled streets to modern cafes and Baroque churches to Art Deco buildings - there's a wonderful mix of East and West. Thirty buildings and squares are UNESCO listed, and many reflect Macau's colonial Portuguese legacy, as does the food, laid-back lifestyle and the blue azulejo-tiled street names. Yet Macau has a modern Asian look, rivalling Singapore and Hong Kong.
