The one thing known about Macau — it’s the Las Vegas of the Eastern Hemisphere. Gambling is a big pastime here, and many locals work in a casino. The most popularly played game is baccarat. But there’s more to do during your stay in Macau than gamble. Spend a day on a beach very different from any other beach you’ve set foot on. Hac Sa Beach, which when translated means Black Sand Bay, is the largest natural beach in Macau and does have some black sand, thanks to minerals found in the seabed that wash up on the shore, although the black parts aren’t as black as they once were. Two other places to visit are Senado Square and A-Ma Temple. The first is a town square in Macau, attracting tourists with its shops, differently styled buildings and various activities happening throughout the year. A-Ma Temple is a Taoist temple. Take a peaceful, spiritual walk through this incense-filled temple for a moment of quiet meditation during your Macau trip.
