Located on the edge of mainland China, Macau is a cultural melting pot which enchants and entertains its visitors in equal measure. Famous for its casinos where high-rollers gamble even more money than their Las Vegas counterparts, the small island is a haven for luxury accommodation and amenities, with world-class shopping and restaurants found throughout the island. Outside of its recent glitzy acquisitions, Macau also sparkles through its Portuguese heritage, with the vibrant European architecture of the old city housing a number of impressive UNESCO-heritage sites. The Chinese-European fusion cuisine is also worth a gamble once you’ve finished at the roulette table.
