In January 2016 I visited the only time Macau for two days. From Shanghai I flew with Air Macau directly into the player's paradise. The architecture of Macau, with its colonial buildings and numerous modern buildings, was very impressive. The city was super easy to explore and not as crowded as Hong Kong for example, with most of the visitors probably always in the casinos.

With pleasant mild temperateurs, I had an exciting and interesting day there. Unfortunately, I could not pursue my passion for blackjack because the casinos were mostly Chinese or Portuguese.

Macau, with its many varied facilities and attractions, is certainly suitable for a longer stay. Macau has an approximately 50-minute ferry service to Hong Kong International Airport.
