We went from Hong Kong to Macau for the day, it's part of the ROC, Republic of China, but it like Hong Kong used to be a common wealth (or colony) of another country, in this care Portugal. So, it's an interesting mix of old Portugal and Chinese architect, people and tastes. A very interesting place. It's also the only place in the area for Chinese to gamble as it is illegal in mainland China to do so. It was crazy, the hotels and casinos that were being built when we were there are going to rival Las Vegas. Although at the time it was like something out of a Jacky Chan movie. It was smoke filled with so much security. It was fun though. We went all around the island, it's not very big. We went to the top of a fort that is now a museum and had a look over the city, then we went across the street to a cathedral that is only a face left.
