M is for Macau
Macau, like Hong Kong, is a Special Administrative Region of China but with a much more Latin feel from its time as a Portuguese enclave. We went there on a day trip by ferry from Hong Kong in 2002 and noticed a huge difference between the two. If we went back now, we’d find the place much changed – already famous for its casinos when we were there, it has since acquired many more as owners from Las Vegas entered the market. I have no interest in gambling – I think, if I’m remembering correctly, we had dinner in a casino restaurant which was the nearest we got!
