마카오(Macau,Macao,澳門, 광동어 우3먼5 만다린: 아오멘 )은 중국의 특별행정지역으로 홍콩의 반대편 동쪽편 퍼얼강의 강어귀에 자리잡고있다. 1999년까지 마카오는 포르투갈의 해외 영토였다. 세계 최고밀의 지역인 마카오는 아시아 최대의 여행지로 도박으로 잘알려져 있다.
For many years, the usual way to get to Macau was to fly into Hong Kong and take the ferry across to Macau. Today, Macau is becoming a low-cost airline hub, and some people are flying to Macau to reach Hong Kong.
Most visitors do not need visas, with many nationalities (most Asians, Europeans and North/South Americans) being able to obtain visa-free entry (7 days, 30 days, 90 days, 180 days or 1 year depending on nationality); check with the Macau Tourism Office  for details. Hong Kong residents may enter using their Identity Card, and may stay continuously for up to a year. For those requiring a visa, it can either be obtained from a Chinese embassy or consulate or obtained on arrival in Macao (Macao visas are separate from visas valid for travel to Mainland China).
Like Hong Kong, Macau has a separate immigration regime from mainland China and anyone going to Macau from the mainland is deemed to be leaving China. If you want to re-enter China from Macau, you'll have to apply for another Chinese visa unless your earlier one is a multiple entry visa.wts:Category:Macao
