About Macau

Macau is a former overseas territory of Portugal, on the south-eastern coast of China, 64 km west of Hong Kong.

One Hour From Hong Kong

In December 1999, Macau reverted back to China as another special administrative region.

Map of Macau

Macau is well worth the one hour boat ride from the former British colony of Hong Kong.

The gambling casinos in the territory contribute a large portion of the tax revenues, thanks in part to the visitors from Hong Kong. The big rollers come in by helicopter.

Weather in Asia:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around Asia.


In the 18th century Macau was one of the world's richest cities, through trading between China and the west.

Macau lost its dominance in Chinese trade due to the silting of its harbour and the growth of the port of Hong Kong.

As its trade declined, Macau gained a reputation as a smuggling and gambling centre.

Macau Beaches

The peninsula is linked by bridge to one of the Taipa islands, which in turn is connected by causeway with Coloane.

Two good beaches are on Coloane: Hac Sa and Cheoc Van. Windsurfing and horse riding are possible at Hac Sa.

Macau Sightseeing

The 400 year-old Kun Iam Temple is the city's most historic; dedicated to the queen of heaven and goddess of mercy.

Of Interest

Built in 1602, by Japanese Christians fleeing persecution in Nagasaki, the ruins of St. Paul's Church are the symbol of Macau. Only the facade and a large stairway up to it remain.

The Monte Fort overlooks this landmark and has a good view over most of Macau.
