This vibrant city’s unique blend of Portuguese heritage and traditional Chinese culture has merited a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its historic centre. While visitors may get a feel of Las Vegas at first glance thanks to the massive entertainment centres and themed casinos, beyond all that glitz are gorgeous churches, ancient temples and great fusion food.
