Living in Macau

Known as the Las Vegas of the East, Macau has much more to offer than casinos. The region is a former Portuguese colony, and this influence can be seen in Macau’s streets and architecture, which have a distinctly European feel. Besides experiencing the world-class restaurants and cafes, residents can enjoy bicycling and hiking around Macau. Many choose to escape from the crowds of the densely-populated main peninsula by spending time on the less crowded islands, which are accessible by bridge. Cantonese is the most-spoken language in Macau, although many Macanese will speak some Mandarin as well. Because Macau is a popular tourist destination, many people also know English.
