About Macau

Macau is a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China. It was administered by Portugal for 442 years, first as a trading post, and subsequently as a Portuguese territory, until its handover to China in 1999. It was the last European territory in Asia.

The human history of Macau stretches back up to 6,000 years. Fishermen and farmers from mainland China were the first known settlers in Macau, known as the "trading gate" because of its location at the mouth of the Pearl River downstream from Guangzhou (Canton).

Macau is bordered with Zhuhai of Mainland by land and is surrounded by ocean. It consists of Macau peninsula, Taipa and Coloane islands.
