The epicentre of glitz and glamour in the eastern part of the world, the city of Macao makes for an unforgettable vacation. This truly world-class city has so much to offer travellers – from a rich culture and buzzing nightlife to delectable cuisine and adventure sports, you will be spoilt for choice on your visit to Macao.
Macao has a beautiful hybrid culture of Asia and Europe that is ingrained in all aspects of life. This culture is the very reason that Macao offers unique experiences you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Here are some of our favourite reasons to visit this multicultural city:
1. It’s a cultural melting pot
Macao presents a unique blend of Cantonese culture juxtaposed with elements of European heritage. This has happened as a result of Macao being a Portuguese colony for 300 years. You will find street signs and advertisements in both Portuguese and Chinese while fusion cuisine rules the market. Everything, from architecture to language and even religious practices, brings forwards a mix of several cultural traditions. So while you visit the famous Chinese A-Ma Temple, you can also admire the beauty of the Ruins of St Pauls which is a Portuguese church.
