Macau Photos

macau-photosMacau lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta across from Hong Kong to the east. Macau was administered by Portugal as a colony from the mid-16th century until 1999 when it reverted to China, forming the second Special Administrative Region after Hong Kong (1997). Historically, Macau was the first European trading port in the Pearl River and it was from here that the British traded before establishing Hong Kong. Our Macau Photos capture some of its history and contemporary development.

Today, Macau combines old-style Portuguese restaurants with Las Vegas style integrated entertainment complexes, offering gaming, hotels, shopping, shows and entertainment. It is only an hour away from Hong Kong by hydrofoil, so it is a popular Hong Kong getaway. Because Macau has an economy primarily based on Mainland Chinese tourism avoid week-ends and public holidays, particularly those coinciding with Mainland Chinese Public holidays when room availability is low and hotel prices are generally higher.
