Since Macau is a territory within China, many people believe that it completely follows the Chinese culture. But, that’s not the case. Macau has a diverse culture, and it’s worth exploring!
There are two official languages in Macau- Chinese and Portuguese. Signboards you see in Macau are displayed in both these languages, but English is also commonly spoken.
The most popular cuisine here is Cantonese cuisine (Southern Chinese dishes). Buts still, if you head to one of the Macau five-star hotels the likes of Hotel Okura Macau to fine dining, you get the chance to enjoy these traditional cuisines with many other international cuisines.
The majority of the population in Macau is Buddhists. Roman Catholicism and Protestantism are two other religions (philosophies) that are spreading quickly at present among the younger generation.
Macau also has a great artistic background. Film and literature take an integral part in their culture. Music also is adored by the community and this is why the Government decides to conduct the Macau International Music Festival every year, combining classical music, rock, jazz, and many other styles.
