Walking is the best way to get to kw any city, and Macau - the former Portuguese colony returned to China in 1999 - is made for walking. Only seven miles square, one can easily walk from the Border Gate to Barra Point at the tip of Macau in a day. This guide describes eight walks around peninsular Macau and its outlying islands, sufficient to explore and understand this fascinating old city and its unique blend of European and Asian cultures.
