Where is Macau?

The question on everyones lips
Macau Nightlife

Macau, which can also be spelled Macao, is a Chinese city, with an exciting history, on the western side of the Pearl River Delta, with the eastern side of the river being occupied by Hong Kong (only a 30 minute journey by fast boat). Macau and Hong Kong make up the two special administrative regions of the People’s Republic of China. Macau also borders Guangdong Province to the north and faces the South China Sea to the south.

Macau has come a very long way in recent years and is a far cry from its days as a Portuguese Colony. Portugal administered Macau back in the 16th century and Macau was the last European colony in China until sovereignty was handed back to China on December 20, 1999. Macau is now responsible for its own legal system, police force, monetary system, customs policy, and immigration policy, while PRC are in control of defense and foreign affairs.

While export-geared textile and garment manufacturing, banking and other financial services make up a large number of the Macau chief economic activities, Macau’s economy relies heavily on tourism. Macau, which is the only legal place to gamble in China, has become the gambling capital of the world, with International casino’s dominating the Macau skyline, making Macau a bigger gambling force than that of Las Vegas.

As well as the huge rise in gambling revenue, Macau has also boosted its tourism levels by including other entertainment options, such as the amazing House of Dancing Water, concerts, industry trade shows and international art crossovers. When discussing the city’s budget, the Macau government continue to keep their expenditure with the limits of the city’s revenue.

Macau continues to grow at an impressive rate, with the gambling revenue increasing all of the time, drawing in more and more of the wealthy people from mainland China to the incredible casinos and hotels. With that said, Macau are also looking to increase the International tourism by entering into the International movie industry, in an attempt to take over the movie world as they did with the gambling.

While people do instantly think of casinos, hotels and gambling when Macau is mentioned, there is also plenty to see and do, with the Portuguese influences making it easy to forget that you are in an Asian city rather than a European one. Finally, on very big positive for Macau, is the fact that they have the second highest life expectancy in the world. Macau is certainly the place to be.
