Macau is located 60km southwest of Hong Kong, south of Zuhai, China Guangdong Province. It is one of the two special administration regions of the People's Republic Of China. Macau consists of Peninsula of Macau itself, and the islands of Taipa and Coloane. It is recognized as one of the top tourist destinations in South China. Macau is always a gateway for me to travel along together with Hong Kong, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen.
The first time I came here in 2002, and second visit was in year 2005. We usually take a flight with Airasia to Macau, then take bus AP1 to the Porto do Cerco (Barrier Gate) to Zuhai, China. We takes a bus in the terminal near the gate on Zuhai side to Guangzhou. From Guangzhou, we takes the 1 hours speed train to Shenzhen. From Shenzhen, we can walk to Hong Kong. From Hong Kong, we take the speed boat to Macau. We stay few days in Macau before heading back home.
I love Macau because it has the charm of the pass Portuguese colony. Many Portuguese houses, churches, and office buildings are still remnant in Macau. Many Portugueses still remain living in Macau for many generations. The local residents are strongly influenced by Portuguese' cultures and customs. All the signboards are in two languages, Chinese and Portuguese. It is truly an unique Chinese City with diverse cultures and heritages.
I have not been to any Casino in Macau, so no information on that.
