It looks like a tiny European city. Its solemn architecture of Catholic churches and Chinese temples, as well as tranquil and less crowded streets compared to Hong Kong and Shanghai make the town a little heaven on our planet. The majestic and beautiful Largo de Senado is located there, and the prettily stone-paved ground reflects the gorgeous decoration lights from the Leal Senado in a moonlit and romantic night. You may want to stay there all night long and will forget to return to your hotel room, even if you are alone.
But the town has another side, which is quite playful and sometimes erotic. The entertainment business has always been prosperous, casinos and nightclubs are all around. Gaming became legalized by the Portuguese in 1847, the business had been developed fast and later branded "The Oriental Monte Carlo".
