Experience Macao Your Own Style
Macao - located on the western bank of the Pearl River Delta in southern Guangdong Province, People’s Republic of China - adjoins the Mainland city of Zhuhai and lies some 60 kilometres to the west of Hong Kong. Macao comprises Macao Peninsula, Taipa and Coloane. Macao Peninsula is the hub of the territory and is connected to Taipa by three bridges. Several large international hotel resorts - with new supporting infrastructure - are located on the reclaimed land between Taipa and Coloane in the newly developed district known as Cotai.
The Portuguese arrived and settled in Macao in the mid 16th Century. Thus, the city’s architecture, art, religion, traditions, food and community reflect the integration of Chinese, Western and Portuguese cultures. In 2005, The Historic Centre of Macao was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a result of its unique historical and cultural landscape. Meanwhile, Macao was designated as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy in 2017. The honors propelled the city beyond gastronomy and tourism, towards developing into a quality international tourist destination and positioning as the World Centre of Tourism and Leisure.
Visitors can travel to Macao conveniently through different transportation. Many visitors travel to Macao by ferry via Shun Tak Centre (Sheung Wan, Hong Kong), Hong Kong International Airport, China Ferry Terminal (Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong) and Tuen Mun Ferry Terminal (New Territories, Hong Kong). Visitors can also take the helicopter service, or land crossing through the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, opened to traffic in 2018.
