About Zhuhai and Macau, China

Designated a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in 1980, Zhuhai is on the

southern coast of Guangdong province on the south-west side of the Pearl River

Delta, adjacent to Macau. Zhuhai has benefited greatly from its proximity to

Macau and grown as a powerful modern port city, science and education city,

scenic and tourism city, and as a regional hub for transportation. The

attractive environment and natural landscapes win Zhuhai the reputation of a

garden city and a model city of best living environment in China. Zhuhai's

Hengqin Island is about 3 times the size of Macau, and is connected to Macao's

Cotai via the Lotus Bridge. The reclaimed island of Hengqin is 96km(2) (37

square miles) and has broad bays, sandy beaches, beautiful scenery, fresh air,

and natural vegetation cover. There is a proposal to develop Hengqin Island

into a resort area.

Macau is a Special Administrative Region of China, bordering on the south

of Zhuhai. As of the end of 2006, Macau (a Special Administrative Region of

the People's Republic of China) has become the largest and fastest-growing

gaming market in the world, and has surpassed the Las Vegas Strip in total

revenues. According to statistics provided by Macau government, in 2006,

Macau's gaming revenues exceeded US$7 billion (MOP 56.2 billion patacas),

surpassing the Las Vegas Strip gaming revenues of US$6.6 billion. Macau

borders Zhuhai City of Guangdong Province of China, one of the country's

wealthiest and most developed regions and is an hour away from Hong Kong via

ferry. In 2006, the number of tourists visiting Macau reached an all-time

record of 22 million, an increase of 17 percent compared with 2005, of which

55%, or 12 million visitors, were from mainland China. At the end of 2006,

there were 22 casinos, 83 hotels and similar establishments in Macau with

close to 13,000 rooms. By 2010, the number of tourists is expected to nearly

double to almost 30 million visitors per year. Approximately one billion

people live within a three-hour flight of Macau. Numerous hotel, gaming, and

other projects are in the works in Macau which are expected to add over 10,000

guest rooms and over 20,000 live entertainment seats in eight separate venues.

The number of hotel-casinos in operation and in development in Macau continues

to grow, including well-known Chinese names such as Galaxy and Melco, and

famous Las Vegas names such as the Sands, the Venetian, Wynn Resort and Crown

Macau. With the disposable income of the average Chinese on the rise, Macau's

gaming and entertainment market is expected to grow for years to come. Macau

is the only area in China where gambling is legal.
