After spending three weeks traveling all around China, our trip was to end in Hong Kong, but first we made a stopover in Macau. Now if you are a gambler, this place would be very exciting. I felt like we were plopped down into Vegas, with the MGM and other casinos to visit. They were very beautiful and looked almost like the ones in Vegas. There are much more interesting things in Macau though. Go to the old town area to see the historic fort and the Portuguese inspired buildings that are there. Among the throngs of people you will get a better idea of this Asian-Portuguese fusion area of China. Be prepared to go through customs coming and going, even though you are still technically in China. Wasted a few hours there for no apparent reason.
