Views over Macau from Guia Hill Fortress. February, 2018.
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 and put Macau centre stage for my Chinese New Year travels In 2018. “Macau is not interesting”, said an uninformed acquaintance of mine, “is only casinos”. While this amazing little autonomous region is indeed known as The Las Vegas of Asia, my friend’s silly statement couldn’t have been further off the mark.
