Historic Center of Macao Location

Macau is located on the southeastern coast of China. Macau is made up of a peninsula and two islands in the Pearl River delta of Guangdong Province. Some 65 km (40mi) to the northeast, across the mouth of the river, is HongKong, an important financial and trading center.

Historic Center of Macao Attractions

Macau is built on the peninsula; two bridges of 2.5 km (1.55 mi) and 4.5 kms (2.80 mi) respectively link it to Macau's nearest island of Taipa, which in turn is joined to Coloane by a 2.2 km (1.36 mi) long causeway. At the very northern end of the peninsula, on a narrow isthmus, is the imposing gateway (Portas do Cerco, or Border Gate), which leads to the Zhuhai and Zhongshan areas of China.
