A gallery of Macau has been added to the portfolio section of this site. It includes some of the images taken while on assignment for the Macau Tourism Office.
The cultural heart and soul of Macau, which has been crowned the gambling capital of the world, lies beyond the decadence of its glittering casinos. Macanese culture is a unique mix of China and southern Europe, the result of more than four centuries of East meets West.
A former Portuguese colony, Macau became one of two Special Administrative Regions of China – Hong Kong is the other – in 1999.
Walking through the historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage site, visually you feel as though you are in the Mediterranean one moment, China the next or both at the same time fused seamlessly. Traditional Chinese neighborhoods are found in the Old City, woven together by a maze of back streets and alleys where getting lost is time well spent.
