Yet despite these exciting recent developments, the former Portuguese territory’s unique appeal remains in its heritage as a place where East meets West – where Southern Europe meets China. And the blend is still prevalent today, not just in Macau’s plethora of historic buildings – with Taoist temples alongside baroque churches and elegant squares – but just as importantly, in its food, events, festivals and laid-back culture too.
It’s clear that Macau is quickly evolving into a highly diverse and vibrant destination, with over 28 million visitors annually demonstrating its growing popularity. It’s a trend that looks likely to continue, as Macau adds to the range of exciting new hotels and attractions on offer year-by-year.
