Macau has a colourful palette and a plethora of sites despite occupying just 28sq km on a peninsula of the Chinese mainland. From neon-lit casinos to dusky markets, soaring high rise to verdant parks, cobbled streets to modern cafés and Baroque churches to Art Deco buildings there’s a wonderful mix of East and West and old and new. Thirty buildings and squares are UNESCO listed and many reflect Macau’s colonial Portuguese legacy as does the food, laid-back lifestyle and even the blue azulejo-tiled street names. Yet Macau has a modern Asian look also, rivalling Singapore for tidy streets and Hong Kong for flyovers and bridges.
