Although its population is primarily ethnic Chinese, Macau—because it was a Portuguese territory for so long—has a distinctly Mediterranean flavor: a languorous pace; balconied pastel buildings; and open pracas, or squares. Over the years it has maintained a downright raffish atmosphere, complete with warring gangsters.
Its character could change, however: After centuries of administration by Portugal, Macau was returned to Chinese sovereignty in 1999. China has promised 50 years of noninterference in Macau’s economic and social systems—but given the mercurial nature of the government in Beijing, all bets are off.
On weekends and holidays, Macau is filled to capacity with Hong Kong residents, who visit for the gambling and the slower, more relaxed pace of life. So we highly recommend that you visit during the week. Macau is about 35 mi/60 km west of Hong Kong.
