Macao – The Perfect Far East Stopover
One of the region’s most exciting destinations, boasting a unique Portuguese-Chinese heritage, Macao offers an ambience and experience like nowhere else in the world. Just 40 miles from Hong Kong, it is a truly unmissable addition to any Far East itinerary and a perfect stopover en route ‘Down Under’! Blending the best of the past with the new, mazes of cobbled streets lined with pastel-coloured Mediterranean–style buildings, traditional Taoist temples and bustling markets, co-exist with spectacularly illuminated skyscrapers and glitzy malls and casinos - a testimony to Macao’s unique East-meets-West culture. In contrast, Macao’s southern countryside of picturesque hills and rural villages, valleys and beaches offers a slower pace and opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. For such a small destination, Macao’s highly impressive accommodation portfolio continues to grow every year. While Macao’s top-end hotels – often complete with world leading entertainment offerings, shopping malls and spas – tend to steal the show, there’s also a good selection of 3 and 4-star mid-market options, and pousadas (Portuguese-style boutique properties) to be found across the destination, making a stay in Macao affordable for all!
