Rich History: Echoes of the Past


As the first and last European colony in Asia, Macao was peacefully returned to China in 1999 after being under Portugal’s influence since the 1500s. Macao's story reaches back even further, though, to the Qin dynasty, nearly 2,200 years ago. Discover its legacy at museums including the Maritime Museum, Handover Gifts Museum, and Wine Museum

A small peninsula in southeast China, Macao offers more than 20 UNESCO World Heritage sites, family-friendly attractions, world-class cuisine, and more!
