Traveling to Macau
For many attendees outside of China, the best way to go to Macau is to travel to Hong Kong first. In Hong Kong airport, you can take a boat to Macau directly from the Hong Kong airport. Boats are scheduled for all hours during the day. The trip by boat is less than an hour, and typically more inexpensive than flying into Macau.
Lying 65 km to the west of Hong Kong, Macau is a city of duality. Its fortresses, churches and the culinary traditions of its former Portuguese colonial masters speak to a unique style on the China coast. These are intermixed with the customs, alleys, temples and shrines of its Chinese heritage. On the other hand, the Special Administrative Region of Macau is the "Vegas of the East," the only place in China where gambling is legal.
While Macau has earned the title of the Oriental Las Vegas as it is a gamblers' paradise, it is also a beautiful city with winding streets, gardens and picturesque hilly landscapes. A wander around the city is a fantastic experience!
The Conference will take place at University of Macau. Founded in 1981, University of Macau is the only public comprehensive university located in Macau, being the leading tertiary institution of the city, which has excellence in teaching, research and service to the community, and is the largest university in the city, according to faculty size and number of programs offered. Its new campus has fantastic facilities for the conference.
A self-paid local tour will be provided for visiting Macau World Heritage including Ruins of St. Paul's, Na Tcha Temple, Mount Fortress, Senado Square, A-Ma Temple, and more on September 18, 2015.
