Macau is a nice place to visit if you're ever in the Hong Kong area. The island was, until very recently, under joint administration between the Portuguese and Chinese governments. There are quite a few casinos here which is what attracts most people. It's also a lot cheaper to stay in than Hong Kong. Of course Macau also has motor sports in town - Monaco style! The streets are converted to a race track once a year to host the famous Macau F3 race.
