This month Macau celebrated the 10th year of the transfer of the territory’s sovereignty from Portuguese to Chinese hands.

I have many fond memories of Macau because I’ve been there twice: first in 2007 for about three hours, and then this year for three weeks.

I was not there during the festivities, but I’d like to take part in the celebration by enumerating the top 10 attractions that visitors ought to see when they’re in Macau.

1. Senado Square


2. Ruins of St. Paul’s


3. Macau Tower


4. Casinos


5. Venetian Hotel


6. Guia Lighthouse


7. A Ma Temple


8. Kun Lam Statue


9. Red Market


10. Hac Sa Beach
