Your Macau Itinerary

Macau Up Close: More Than Casinos!

A Portuguese colony for over 500 years, Macau is much more than just casinos! Though often referred to as the “Las Vegas of Asia” for its popularity with gamblers, Macau is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site which showcases its longstanding Portuguese heritage. Join This is Asia tours for a unique experience of Macau–one that focuses more on the history, the local lifestyle, and the Portuguese cultural influence than the casinos.

Experience Macanese Tradition

We’ll explore Macau’s historic backstreets, visiting sites such as the Ah Ma temple, historic churches, halls, and squares, and we’ll sample local Macanese cuisine–the unique mixture of Macau’s traditional Cantonese and Portuguese cuisines. Not to miss a beat, we’ll also explore some of the popular sites in the resort and casino area and discuss local gaming culture. This walking tour will be a truly comprehensive overview of the city as a whole, not just the gambling scene. No other tour operator offers an experience of Macau like this one. As we will not be gambling on the tour, everyone is welcome!
