I’ve always wanted to go to Las Vegas! In fact, it’s one of two or three major bucket list destinations I still haven’t managed to tick off. With no plans to get back to the U.S. anytime soon, I decided to make do with the next best thing with a visit to Macau during Chinese New Year in 2018.
“Macau is not interesting”, stated an uninformed acquaintance of mine, “is only casinos”. While this amazing little autonomous region is indeed known as The Las Vegas of Asia, this silly statement couldn’t have been further off the mark.
Yes there are towering casinos and hotels galore. But dig just a little and you’ll tap into a fascinating world of colonial fortresses, Portuguese squares, leafy hill parks and traditional townhouses.
Not impressed? How about market streets, chapels, churches, temples, beaches, lighthouses, sleepy villages, military tunnels, a panda park and so much more. Don’t believe me? Why not visit Macau for yourself through my articles on:
