Dubbed as the “Vegas of Asia”, Macau has it all—glitz, glamor, and, of course, gambling. It is an autonomous region on the south coast of China and is easy to reach via the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong, making it a popular side-trip destination. Up until 1999, it was a Portuguese territory, which is why it is a hodge lodge of cultural influences. People visiting often hit the casinos or go shopping at the malls on Cotai Strip. Daredevils looking for some adventure and excitement head straight to the Macau Tower, where bungee jumping is considered a top activity.
