Just an hour away from Hong Kong by ferry is a tiny 30 sq km peninsula place known as the Las Vegas of Asia, Macau. As the name suggests this is a gambling haven but is often under appreciated for its exotic fusion of Chinese and Portuguese Culture. Macau has much more to offer than gambling through to the early morning hours. Venetian Macau is the world’s largest casino and offers some of the most exciting entertainment that Asia has to offer. The interior has an Italian style with soft Italian music playing in the background. You can even ride a gondola whilst listening to the boat rower sing as you circle waters of the grand canal within the mall.
There are lots of yummy treats but the most famous of them all is the Portuguese egg tart. These are also known to be called ‘Po Tarts.’ These consist of a flaky outer shell with a rich, creamy egg custard filling. Macau will definitely satisfy your taste buds and these egg tarts aren’t all that this place has to offer. Another treat that is famous are the almond cookies and beef / pork jerky, which you’ll notice along the streets going up to the Ruins of St. Paul.
People say you haven’t been to Macau if you didn’t get a chance to check out the Ruins of St. Paul. This is one of the most visited attraction and was originally built in the 17th Century. This was destroyed by fire in 1835 and all that is left remaining till this day is the facade of the Church of Mater Dei. When you are finished here then you might want to take a trip up to Mount Fortress.
One of the nicest shopping streets belong to the cobblestoned streets around Senado Square. Getting around Macau is quite easy with free shuttle buses offered by many of the hotels in Macau.
Macau isn’t all about the gambling venues and shopping but are features of Macau that draws in the money with the vast amount of tourist that visit daily. There are a lot of historic and beautiful scenery. One new site that is set to open in the second half of 2016 is the miniature Eiffel Tower located on the Cotai Strip, is sure to be an eye opener but only half as spectacular to the real on in Paris.
Aside from all this that Macau has to offer, it makes one wonder why expats would move to Macau. Would you gamble on it? Finding the right place to live could make the experience more worth while. The main area where the majority of expats community live is the middle island called Taipa. This place is much better for Expats offering new and larger housing with big kitchens. Family expats tend not to stay in Macau and the majority just go there for the experience.
