Macau – Europe meets Las Vegas in China

Macau is a fascinating place. With a surreal mixture of European Portuguese architecture next to monstrous shiny world-class casinos in a Chinese atmosphere, it all gets  quite overwhelming. Somehow, those striking contrasts co-exists in Macau in an appealing balance.

Last weekend, I made a quick visit to Macau with a good friend and had a terrific time.

If you move away from the center, there are quite a few temples of familiar local Chinese Gods – like A-Ma (Matzu in Taiwan or Tin Hau in HK).

More on that and more from Macau in the following few days…
