Macau

Most people visit Macau via a fast modern ferry ride from Hong Kong. What used to take all night now takes an hour. Macau was the oldest European settlement (Portuguese) in the far east until 1999, when it was returned to mainland China. Many visitors go wild for the glitzy casinos, but Macau has much more to offer. There is a more relaxed feel with a sense of more old-world charm than there is in Hong Kong. There are elegant old Portuguese churches and architecture to explore. Its also worth the bus journey to the beautiful temples and gardens where one can relax and absorb the incense smoke filled atmosphere.
