A meander in Macau:
The high street and city square are cheerfully colourful and quaint.
Old apartment buildings hide in narrow alleys branching off the high street.
With its narrow, winding streets and hilly terrain, scooters are the natural choice of transport.
Macau delicacies are plentiful and often made from scratch right there at the stall- a process worthwhile waiting around to watch.
Almond flour cakes and ginger sweets...
...peanut bars and dried meats.
The Portuguese and Chinese cultures are thoroughly intertwined to give the most intriguing effect.
Graffiti plays its part in making the city one of the most colourful I have ever seen in Asia.
The atmosphere is relaxed and unassuming, and there are many happily situated benches on which to sit back and soak it all in.
The main tourist attractions are as much juxtapositions in themselves as the city they are in.
