One Day Tour to Macau (USD60, July 14, 2007)

 

The Macau Special Administrative Region (Traditional Chinese: 澳門特別行政區), commonly known as Macau or Macao (Traditional Chinese: 澳門) is one of the two special administrative regions (SARs) of the People's Republic of China (PRC), along with Hong Kong. Administered by Portugal until 1999, it was the oldest European colony in China, dating back to the 16th century. The administrative power over Macau was transferred to the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1999.

Besides historical Chinese and Portuguese world-heritage relics, Macau's biggest attraction is its gambling industry and casinos. Though many forms of gambling are legal here, the most popular game is baccarat, which generates over two thirds of the gaming industry's gross receipts.
