Try Macau in China for a great heritage holiday

People in the UK who are unsure where to go on their holidays but know they want somewhere off the beaten track should try Macau in China, it has been suggested.

A spokesperson for Hume and Whitehead, speaking on behalf of the area’s tourist office, said that many people are unaware of the wide range of cultural activities on offer there, but that it is becoming more popular as people hear about it and decide to try it for themselves.

Macau is an official Unesco World Heritage Site and has an interesting history thanks to its past links with Portugal.

“It’s got a nice, relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere, amazing food and really a whole range of things to do. It’s a great value destination; it can sit on whatever budget level you’ve got,” the unnamed source added.

Statistics published by the government of Macao Special Administrative Region show that more than 2.5 million people visited Macau in November 2008, an increase of three per cent on the same month the year before.

In total, 27.6 million visitors went there in the first 11 months of last year, which was an increase of 13.4 per cent year-on-year.

Macau is situated near to the Guangdong province of China.
