Macau (Aomen), situated on the coast of the South China sea, the Pearl river Delta, 60 km South-West of Hong Kong. For almost 450 years it was a Portuguese colony, which largely determined the appearance of the city, its culture and way of life. On 20 December 1999 Macau came under the jurisdiction of China, to commemorate what Lotus on the Square opposite the amusement Park, Fisherman’s Wharf was erected a striking monument to the “Blooming Lotus”.

What is Macau today? One of the most densely populated cities in the world and the largest on the planet gambling den. Here is the world’s largest casino “Venetian”. Walking around the Old town, it is easy to imagine that somewhere in Europe (adjusted for the street signs are in Chinese) — temples, fortresses and other entourage available. And suddenly stumbled on a statue of avalokiteśvara by the sea near the Sands casino and MGM are surprised to notice that it is more like a traditional European Madonna than the Buddhist bodhisattva.

Only half an hour on a comfortable ferry to separate authentic island of Cheung Chau (Cheung Chau) from the center of the bustling and dizzying, from the skyscrapers of Hong Kong. It would seem that I forgot the tourists in this quiet provincial town? At least the wonderful atmosphere of China 30 years ago. Cars on the island are completely absent, and the locals travel by bike or on foot. Skyscrapers are absent, but cozy houses, narrow streets and colorful Oriental temples in excess.

Ride on Cheung Chau to see the life of the local population lie on the beach and swim in the sea — here is a short list of things worth doing on the island.

The island can be easily reached by ferry from the Central ferry terminal Hong Kong Central Ferry Terminal, pier 5. The nearest metro stations are Central and Hong Kong. Ferries run two types of speed, which will take 35-40 minutes and ordinary carrying both passengers and cargo, they go 55-60 minutes. To understand schedule, which one is slower, with a special asterisk. The cost of travel “with the wind” from Monday to Saturday — about 25 HKD, on Sundays and holidays — 35 HKD; on a conventional ferry is about 13-29 HKD (price depends not only on the day of the week for class), departing two times per hour.

Despite its diminutive size, the island sheltered a few worthy attractions. For example, a very small replica of the great wall of China that stretches along the winding coastline of Cheung Chau.

You can find the temple of tin Hau, where for two centuries the sailors and their relatives come to ask the goddess of the sea on protection and patronage. Of course, is to visit the temple of Pak tai, even if the stay does not fall famous bakery festival. This temple dedicated to the Taoist God of the sea, there are two hundred years old.
