Sometimes the oldest European tribe in eastern Asia, Aomoyun (Macao) is now an autonomous administrative unit in China. It occupies the territory of a small area on the Zhuzhoujiang and Xizhiang rivers. Once upon a time it was an island. In the 17th century, it was combined with a matérique métérique. The hillmystyle réléféreux – a remnant of the natural légèvre. A considerable part of the territory of Macaucao is equidistant from the sea. The island is completely abandoned, with no forests, pastures, or farmland. However, one-fifth of Mackao is occupied by parks and other other green spaces. Momina is at the junction of tropical and equatorial climates, so its warm and humid. The rainy season is in the summer.

The 4th century is the earliest time of Southern Chinese culture. From the 3rd century onward; in the province of Guangdong of the State of China. As a transit port between Southeast Asia and South Korea, Macau has been known since the 5th century. In the 13th century the remnants of the Sonin dynasty established a fortified settlement as they fled the Mongol-occupied country. The oldest temple of the city also dates back to that time; Vansa. In the 14th-17th centuries – it is mostly inhabited by fishermen who had migrated from neighboring provinces.

The Portuguese were on the banks in 1513 and, after unsuccessful attempts to establish themselves, established an trading post in 1553. No other place in the region the Portuguese were able to do so, but Aomiyan grew and prospered quickly. It was used by the Chinese merchants to trade with Japan after the ban on Chinas economic relations with the Land of the Rising Sun. At the same time, the Jesuit mission appears in Macau. The Portuguese fortify the city, which was officially recognized by the Chinese authorities in 1670 as a port for foreign trade. Until the mid-19th century, Macaucao retained its significance as a crossroads. But with the rise of Hong Kong and Britains influence in the region, Aomineh lost its primacy. Mid-19th – mid-20th century – a time of constant conflict between China and Portugal over the status of Macaucao. In later years the city was divided into European and Chinese parts, but the situation in Macau remained tense. At the end of 1999, following a series of political agreements, Macacao was given 50 years as a special administrative unit within the KPRC.

36 cultural sites (churches, temples, plazas, maiaca) of Macau are included in the World Heritage List. The Mâchau is an organic combination of a regional architecture with a Chinese style. The developed system of gaming venues has made Macau a popular destination for tourists.
