Macau Attractions and Sights by District and Islands

The smalll city of Macau has had tremendous growth in the past century. Expansion is fast exanding into the two islands to the south, Taipa and Coloane.

Soon Taipa and Coloane will be one bigger island, thanks to the expansive reclamation in between, called Cotai. Cotai is being planned to be the “Macau Strip” in deference to its older brother “Las Vegas Strip”. See the plans of Sands Macau, Galaxy and Wynn Resorts.

Today, Macau Peninsula is around 8.5 sq. km., Taipa island 6.2 sq. km., and Coloane Island 7.6 sq. km. Cotai will eventually cover 4.5 sq. km.
