Macau is a Special Administrative Region (SAR) belonging to the People's Republic of China. Macau is well-known for its gambling, generating more revenue from gambling than even Las Vegas. The tiny city is dotted with old colonial buildings that were built by the British, the Portuguese and other European rulers over time.
Most of the population is native Chinese, but given Macau’s reputation as the friendliest global gambling den, there’s always a floating population of Europeans, Americans, Asians and Indians around. Macau is known not only as the Oriental Las Vegas, but also as the Gourmand Paradise, given the plethora of dining options offering delicious global cuisines. With its international vibe, vibrant gambling and fashion scene and deep-rooted Chinese traditions, Macau offers excitement, intrigue and plenty of entertainment for travelers.
