- Macau

macau is an autonomous region on the south coast of china, across the pearl river delta from hong kong. a portuguese territory until 1999, it reflects a mix of cultural influences. its giant casinos and malls on the cotai strip, which joins the islands of taipa and coloane, have earned it the nickname, "las vegas of asia." one of its more striking landmarks is 338m-high macau tower, with sweeping city views.
