Macau is one of the two special administrative regions of the People’s Republic of China. (The other is Hong Kong.) Macau is located next to Hong Kong on the western side of the Pearl River Delta. The summers in Macau are hot and subtropical, while the winters are mild. Typhoons sometimes hit Macau during midsummer to fall. . Formally under Portuguese rule, Macau culture is a unique combination of Chinese and European influences.

Top destinations are Macau’s two beaches, Hac Sa and Cheoc Van, and the theme park attractions of Fisherman’s Wharf.
