Macau

Description

Macau

Macau is a former Portuguese colony on the southcoast of China. From Hong Kong, a convenient 60 km ferry-ride across the Pearl River Estuary will take you there. Macau consists of the Macau Peninsula and the islands of Taipa and Coloane, now connected by the Cotai Strip landfill.

Being a small, densely populated and heavily urbanized place, long distance hiking is no option in Macau. Yet, there is a network of well-maintained nature trails worth exploring in the hills of Taipa and Coloane. Try the circular Coloane Trail, The Taipa Grande and Taipa Pequena Trails.

Macau's climate is subtropical with very high temperatures and humidity in summer (April - September). For maximum views and dry weather, try November, December, January, February or March.
