Overview on unique Macao

08-04-2010 18:21 BJT

Macau, the only place in the world where the Mediterranean meets the Pacific, and one of the main gateways to southern China, indulges you with its rich and vibrant culture and history.

Off the southern coast of China, 70 km from Hong Kong, the island territory of Macau is emerging rapidly as a world travel destination: the Asian Las Vegas, featuring an Asian spin on the many things to do in Las Vegas. 

Formerly a Portuguese colony, Macau (also spelled “Macao”) is the oldest European settlement in China, serving for 400 years as a gateway for cultural exchange between the East and West.  Fusing cultures from Asia and Europe, this fascinating territory was handed back to the People’s Republic of China in 1999, by the Portuguese government.

Whenever you come to Macau, treat yourself with our unique experience of leisure and hospitality there.
