Often referred to as the city of blended cultures, Macau is a one hour journey on water from Hong Kong. The city is filled with the smell of incense sticks from shrines and temples while the Portuguese tongues coexist with the Chinese population. But to the world, Macau is loved and lauded for its glitzy and glamorous casino culture. Popularly known as the “Vegas of China”, Macau encapsulates the oomph and dynamism of a 21st century city. It goes without saying at this point that the food and beverage in Macau aim to impress, much like everything else. Macau gives you traditional vs. contemporary, Portuguese vs. Chinese and scintillating vs. humble. Perhaps that is why we so often hear people say; Cities are like people, full of contrasts and complexities.
