Macau, located at the west bank of Pearl River Delta in South China, is the intersection of Mainland China and South China Sea. It is also located at the south of tropic of Cancer. Macau, also known as the "Las Vegas of the East" is easily accessed by ferry from Hong Kong (approximately 1 hours journey).

Macau is a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China and, like Hong Kong, benefits from the principle of "one country, two systems". The tiny SAR is growing in size - with more buildings on reclaimed land - and in the number and diversity of its attractions. The greatest of these continues to be Macau’s unique society, with communities from the East and West complementing each other, and the many people who come to visit.

In modern times Macau has developed a world class tourist industry with a wide choice of hotels, resorts, sports facilities, restaurants and casinos. With unspoilt beaches and top class restaurants, Macau can be considered a glorious slice of the Mediterranean tucked away on the South China Sea.
