Macau overview

Macau or Macao (Chinese: 澳門, Cantonese: [ōu.mǔːn]; Portuguese: Macau, /məˈkaʊ/ (About this sound listen)), officially the Macao Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the western side of the Pearl River estuary in East Asia. Along with Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, and several other major cities in Guangdong, the territory forms a core part of the Pearl River Delta metropolitan region, the most populated area in the world. With a population of 650,900[3] in an area of 30.5 km2 (11.8 sq mi), it is the most densely populated region in the world.

Macau was formerly a colony of the Portuguese Empire, after Ming China leased the territory as a trading post in 1557. Originally governing under Chinese authority and sovereignty, Portugal was given perpetual occupation rights for Macau in 1887. Macau remained under Portuguese control until 1999, when it was returned to China. As a special administrative region, Macau maintains a separate political and economic system apart from mainland China.[5] The People's Republic of China's obligation to run Macau as a special administrative region per the Joint Declaration on the Question of Macau expires on 20 December 2049.

Macau is the gambling capital of the world.[6][7][8] Its economy is heavily dependent on gambling and tourism, with the largest gambling revenue since 2006.[9] It has a very high Human Development Index and the fourth-highest life expectancy in the world.[10][11] Macau is among the world's richest regions and its GDP per capita by purchasing power parity was higher than that of any country in the world.[12] In 2015, Macau was ranked as the No.1 of the Fastest Growing Metropolitan Areas in the world by Brookings Institution.[13]

昨日はマカオB級グルメ「咖哩魚旦」(カレーおでん)を恆友魚旦というお店で食べてみました!うまい!  店先に具材が刺さった串が並んでいて、好きな串を選んで店員さんに渡します。 すると店員さんがそれを湯がいてくれ、その後カレーソースとお好みでスパイシーなソースをかけてもらって食します。 近くにあるベンチで座って食べたり、立ち食いしたりしていて風情あり。  具材の種類は魚肉や肉の団子系、キノコや白菜といった野菜系、ウィンナー系、油揚げ系、モツ系などがありました。 私はキノコ2種、モツ系2種、白菜の串を頼んで51パタカ、日本円にして714円くらい。 けっこうお腹いっぱいになったし、久しぶりの馴染み深いカレー味に元気もらった!外食で野菜がいっぱい食べられるのもありがたい!  カレーソースの味はインドよりは日本のカレーに近い。辛さもリクエストできて、私はベリーベリースパイシーにしてもらいました🔥  場所は世界遺産の一角、セナド広場近くなので観光客が多いけど、地元の人たちもいて良い感じでした。 本当は他のB級グルメ・葡撻(エッグタルト)や雙皮燉奶(牛乳プリン)も食べたかった😭  セナド広場では、私は観光そこそこに宿泊先の確保や昼寝に必死。 結局、ホストの方々とはうまく都合合わず、再度空港泊🙇‍♂️ #恆友魚旦 #カレーおでん #macau
