What to See in Macau
Part of Macau’s charm rests in its contrasts; while the neoclassical architecture of Senado Square sits pretty as a reminder of the island's colonial past, the soaring, ultra-modern casino-style resorts are a clear reminder of where Macau’s present and future lie. With over 15 museums on the island learning in detail the eventful history and resulting consequences on the island is easy. Temples, churches and government buildings all serve to convey the fusion of western and eastern cultures to positive effect. Beyond the mesmerising sights, a perfect way to spend an afternoon in Macau is at Cathedral Square, the island's open-air 'living room'.
