    Macao

    Major Tourist Attractions: Ruins of St. Paul's, Macau Tower, Senado Square, A-Ma Temple, Museum of Macau

    Ruled by the Portuguese for 450 years, Macao was the oldest and last remaining European colony in Asia.

    If a visit to Macao has never crossed your mind, you're not alone. Overshadowed by its nearby colonial-era cousin, Hong Kong, Macao is just starting to become better known to travelers.

    If Macao is known for one thing, it would be gambling. As the world's largest gambling destination, even surpassing Las Vegas, Macao offers something for everyone. The favorite local game is baccarat, a card game with a very low house advantage. However, for those looking for more well-known games, the casinos have plenty of opportunities to play blackjack, poker, or slot machines.

    If you can pull yourself away from the casinos, take some time to explore the culture of Macao. Ruled by the Portuguese for 450 years, Macao was the oldest and last remaining European colony in Asia. Because of this, the Portuguese influence can be found throughout the city. Large European-style public squares, Portuguese language signs, and the ruins of Catholic churches will make you feel like you've been transported to Europe.

    Thanks to the short ferry rides that run 24-hours a day and lack of visa restrictions for many nationalities, travelers to Macao visit on a day trip from Hong Kong. However, for those looking to stay longer, there is much to do in Macao.

    Here are a few of our top picks:

    • Test your luck at the city's many glimmering casinos.
    • Stroll through Largo de Senado, one of the most beautiful public squares in the world.
    • Gaze at the ruins of Sao Paulo Church.
    • Get lost walking through the residential streets of the world's most crowded territory.
    • Trace the Portuguese roots of what was the last remaining European colony in Asia.
    • Find relaxation at the 500-year old A-ma Temple.
    • Try an egg tart at Lord Stow's Bakery on the island Coloane.
    • Relax on the black sands of Hac Sa Beach.
    • Bungee Jump off of the world's highest platform at the Macao Tower.
