For our P-day, we, the 4 senior missionary couples, went to Macau for a fun adventure. The Bishops and the Arnells researched and we were armed with maps, brochures, notes... We took the famed "turbo jet" ferry across the South China Sea and an hour later we were at Macau. The city/island previously was ruled by the the Portugal government.
According to Wikipedia:
Macau was a Portuguese colony and both the first and last European colony in China. Portuguese traders first settled in Macau in the 16th century and subsequently administered the region until the handover on 20 December 1999. The Sino-Portuguese Joint Declaration and the Basic Law of Macau stipulate that Macau operates with a high degree of autonomy until at least 2049, fifty years after the transfer.
Under the policy of "one country, two systems", the Central People's Government is responsible for the territory's defence and foreign affairs, while Macau maintains its own legal system, police force, monetary system, customs policy, and immigration policy. Macau participates in many international organizations and events that do not require members to possess national sovereignty. According to the CIA factbook, Macau has the highest life expectancy in the world.[1
Luckily, we had to do quite a bit of walking to go through all the ruins of the monastery the rest of the day. Earlier in the day, we saw a fabulous dragon show at the "City of Dreams". It was like a 360-degree IMAX video with dragons, tigers rolling all over the screen. Our grandchildren would love to see that. We saw the water dancing show which was fine. I would say the dragon show and the monastery ruins, museums were on the top of the list.
It was a fun day. Let us know if you need more details for your trip.
