Macau occupies a relatively small area of land (28.2 square kilometres) and has a population of just of over half a million people, but generates more revenues from gambling than anywhere else in the world. Besides the casinos, Macau also has a rich culture as a consequence of its history as a Portuguese colony since the 16th Century.
Macau re-joined China as a ‘Special Administrative Region’ in 1999 yet still retains a strong connection to its past as a colony. Some of the older parts of the city look distinctly European although the population of residents from mainland Chinese now outnumber the native Macanese and descendants of the Portuguese settlers. Nonetheless, Macau has its own distinctive Portuguese inspired cuisine and architecture which you can still find in certain parts of Macau.
Macau is split into four areas:
- Macau Peninsula: The northern part of Macau and the most crowded area. This where you find the most famous historic buildings such as the ruins of the cathedral of Sao Paulo
- Taipa: The island to the south of the peninsula where the airport is located.
- Cotai: Land reclaimed from the sea to the south of Taipa where lots of new casinos have been built.
- Coloane: The southern most island in Macau which has a golf course, two beaches and a wild and mountainous terrain with some good hikes.
