Macau is renowned as a popular resort destination, and often referred to as the Las Vegas of Asia, complete with stage shows, entertainment and casinos. Thanks to its long history as a Portuguese overseas territory and its location on Mainland China, Macau has evolved into an intriguing mix of cultures.

There is an interesting historic quarter, filled with a mix of European and Chinese architecture, which has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Accessible from Hong Kong via Turbojet, Macau makes for an ideal Hong Kong or China holiday extension, either for day tours, longer stays or to indulge at one of the many renowned luxury resorts.

The Venetian Macao Resort

 A magical resort filled with replicas of Italy’s famous canal city, Venice, The Venetian Macao Resort is a novelty destination and luxury resort in one.

Similar to the Venetian in Las Vegas, here you can be entertained with a classic stage show, enjoy a gondola ride, cool off in one of the 4 venetian pools or try your hand at mini golf.

After a busy day of activities and sightseeing, unwind in utter comfort in one of the 3,000 plush and richly decorated resort suites.

The highlight of this impressive hotel is the majestic Grand Praca – an indoor square modelled on Lisbon’s 19th century train station, which is a true tip of the hat to Macau’s Portuguese roots.
