Built into the ruins of the 17th-century Barra Fort, the landmark Pousada de São Tiago is Macau’s most romantic place to stay. All 12 rooms are recently renovated and elegantly furnished, and the hotel still has an old-world glamour (00 853 2837 8111; saotiago.com.mo; Avenida da República; from £240).

Getting around
 Central Macau is walkable. Buses cost around 30p. You can download route details at macautourism.gov.mo. The big-name casinos run free shuttle services which you can still use if you’re not a guest, but only if you’re over 18.

When to go
Summer (June-August) in this subtropical climate can be unbearably humid, making October, November and December the most temperate months to visit.

How to go
Hong Kong International is the closest airport connecting Macau to Europe: Air New Zealand (from £750; airnewzealand.co.uk) and BA (from £619; ba.com) fly from Heathrow airport. Macau is an hour from Hong Kong by catamaran (from £11; turbo jet.com.hk, nwff.com.hk, cotaijet.com.mo).
