Macau Package, Macau Packages
Macau is a Mediterranean-like city in the coast of China also known as the “Las Vegas of the East.” However, there is definitely more to Macau than its prosperous gaming industry. Portugal, being Macau’s past colonial ruler, has the strongest influence in the city and is responsible for the grandiose baroque architectures recognised by UNESCO as the Historic Centre of Macau World Heritage Site.
