Macau is famous for gambling and it has a nickname as "Las Vegas of the Orient".
Macau is a Portuguese word derived from a local temple "Ma Kok" dedicated to the Ah-Ma.
When I mentioned that I will be visiting Macau, everyone will think that we are there just to gamble. What is there to see and do in Macau? You could visit lots of attractions such as, Museums, Gardens, Temples, Churches and Casinos.
Casinos are Macau's largest income. Do check out the Casino Lisboa and Sands Casino which are the most famous ones on Macau. Most of the casinos are located along Avenida de Amizade. You could spend a night and visit various casinos.

Lou Lim Ieco Garden
Lou Lim Ieco Garden was built in late 19th century by a wealthy Chinese merchant, Lou Kau, and was modeled after the classical Garden of Suzhou, Ou Yuan.
The garden is complete with bamboo, rock mountains, ponds, 9-turn Bridge, Victorian style houses and other classic elements.
The garden had to be taken over by the government when Lou Kau lost his fortunes. In the 1970's, the government renovated the park and opened it to the public. Today, you will see the locals exercising, singing, playing instruments and strolling in the garden.
Macau Fisherman's Wharf is the newest attractions and the first ever themed entertainment attraction in Macau. It is situated in the Outer Harbour just opposite the Sands Casino.
