Macau has all the glitz, the glamour, all the flashing lights and shiny high rises of Las Vegas but it also has everything Las Vegas could only hope to have. Sure Macau has the luxury casinos - the Wynn, the Venetian, the Sands, the MGM Grand and counting - and an array of Sphinx statues and designer stores to boot. But even more praise worthy are its century-old Cathedrals and incense laden temples, breathtaking gravesites, scrumptious Macanese cuisine and all the dim sum you can eat to your heart’s content. So what is it that Macau has that Las Vegas doesn’t? It’s culture, of course.
Macau was long populated by merchants, from farmers to fishermen and traders who would barter on Silk Road. After China isolated itself again, Macau still welcomed Portuguese merchants and explorers, who set up camp in the 1550s. For centuries, the Portuguese ruled Macau, blending oddly but peacefully with Chinese customs. Macau rose above adversity and reinvented itself as a gambling destination from Mainland China and Hong Kong.
