Casinos and Gambling in portuguese Macau

May 2nd, 2010

Like Hong Kong, Macau is considered a special administrative region of China with its own flag and identity.

Walking around in the city centre you will be able to see that the Chinese weren't the only ones influencing the development here and you can see a clearly European touch to Macau.

Macau, or Macao, was a portuguese colony with the first Europeans setting foot on its soil in 16th century.

Today you can still see these latin influences and some buildings and squares are similar to those in Portugal or Brazil.

A good example would be the ruins of the St. Paul's Cathedral, Casino Lisbona or the Centro de Turismo de negocios de Macao and the many shops around Senado Square.

Everywhere in Macau you will notice that writings are always in both chinese as portuguese which is really unusual and gives this place a unique and multicultural feel to it. The opening of several casino resorts and other developments continues to attract many tourists to Macau which is turning into a popular travel destination.
