Walking is the best way to get to know any city, and Macau — the former Portuguese colony returned to China in 1999 — is made for walking. Only seven miles square, one can easily walk from the Border Gate to the A-Ma Temple at the tip of Macau in a day.

Todd Crowell’s new guidebook describes eight walking routes around the urban peninsula and its outlying islands, sufficient to explore and understand this fascinating old city and its unique blend of European and Asian architecture, cuisine and cultures.

We have a different plan for this month’s book giveaway: we’ll give a free copy of Explore Macau to the first eight people to share this post on our Facebook page!

Boa sorte! — as they say in Portuguese.
