Leased to the Portuguese in the 16th century, Macau is made up of four regions, comprising multiple islands along mainland China’s southern coast. Now administered by mainland China, Macau has transformed into a center of tourism, with different attractions like modern high-rise casinos, Portuguese architecture and Chinese temples.

Walk through the historic center and visit the Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral, whose façade still stands defiantly after the rest fell to a typhoon in the 19th century. Then learn about the history of this fascinating city at the Museum of Macau, located on the hill of the Fortaleza do Monte. Visit the Lou Kau Mansion to see the practical blend of Portuguese and Chinese aesthetics in a historic context. While in Macau, try your luck at one of the many casinos.

Walking is the best way to travel around the historic part of the city. There are also many public bus companies, and most hotels will have private shuttles that move between sites.
