On the southern coast of China, Macau has earned itself the title of the “Las Vegas of Asia”. Tourism drives the local economy in this special administrative region of China, with a strong gambling industry drawing hopeful punters from around the world.

Day 1: Touchdown at Macau International Airport, check in to your hotel and get stuck into exploring. Senado Square, the Ruins of St. Paul’s and Mount Fortress are all close together and well worth a look.
Day 2: Learn more about Macau’s history at the Mandarin’s House. Originally owned by prominent literary figure Zheng Guanying, this residential complex features a blend of Western and traditional Chinese architectural styles. Don’t miss the Moorish Barracks or St. Lawrence’s Church too.
Day 3: For unbeatable views, head up to the observation deck at Macau Tower. Take in the stunning skyline and treat yourself to a buffet lunch. If an adrenaline rush is what you’re looking for, sign up for a bungee jump and plunge off the edge of this 338-metre-tall building. It’s the highest commercial bungee jump in the world.
Macau celebrates its National Day on October 1 each year. While the largest festivities are held in Tiananmen Square in China, you’ll find fireworks, dancing and other ceremonies in Macau as well.
