Macau - Your Passage to Asia
MORE REASONS TO TRAVEL TO MACAU THIS NOVEMBER
The second weekend of November is a busy one in Macau’s social calendar with not only the 12th Macau International Business Aviation Airshow but also the start of the 70th Macau Grand Prix plus the 13th Macau International Yacht Show taking place. Combine these with the already exciting mix of attractions the city has to offer - why wouldn’t you want to visit?
THE VEGAS OF THE EAST
There are many similarities between Macau and Las Vegas, but most significantly they are both leading entertainment capitals of the world - bringing people together. Macau has transformed itself into one of the most popular business travel destinations in Asia. Currently hosting an outstanding conference and exhibition centre plus an incredible combination of world heritage and modern urban buildings - including luxury hotels and resorts, high end shopping complexes and catering and entertainment establishments.
Did you know that the first casino in Macau, ‘Casino Estoril,’ opened in 1962? Today, Macau is home to several of the world’s largest, world-class hotels and resorts, including MGM, Wynn Palace and The Venetian Macao. These resorts offer a range of amenities, marking Macau a popular destination for both leisure and business travellers.
Macau is a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of China. Leased to Portugal in 1557 as a trading post and stopover on the route to Japan - it was part of the Silk Route. Portugal paid an annual rent and administered the territory under Chinese sovereignty until 1887 and later gained perpetual colonial rights - it remained under Portuguese rule until 1999 when it was transferred to China. The unique blend of Portuguese and Chinese architecture in the city’s historic centre led to its inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2005.
ABOUT THE MACAU GRAND PRIX
The Macau Grand Prix is the only street circuit racing event in which both cars and motorcycles participate, and one of only two current national Grand Prix events that are not part of the Formula One World Championship. The Guia circuit has an exhilarating combination of long, fast straights and sharply twisting corners. It is recognised as one of the most demanding circuits in the world.
The first Macau Grand Prix event was held in 1954, in 1976 the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix was introduced and in 2008, a GT3 race was added to the event, which became known as the FIA GT World Cup.
The event runs from 11-12 and 16-19 November.

With over 40 luxury vessels – and more than 20,000 attendees from the mainland and abroad this event is set to become one of the biggest in the yacht show calendar within the region.
HOW TO FLY
TAG Aviation is enormously proud of its FBO in Macau and rightly so. Situated on the 1st floor of the FBO building at Macau’s International Airport, it certainly elevates the normal FBO experience.
As slots for aircraft movements in Hong Kong became increasingly challenging, TAG Aviation saw an opportunity to open an FBO in Macau. Our state-of-the-art FBO offers easy access into Hong Kong either via the new Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge within the hour - at 55km it is the longest open-sea fixed link in the world - or even faster via helicopter! The FBO also offers the perfect gateway to Southeast Asia such as Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
It was vital for the FBO to channel and represent everything for which TAG stood, from Technique d’Avant Garde to its established business ‘know-how’. We managed this perfectly through the combination of a stylish and comfortable FBO environment and a warm friendly service from a highly trained team - offering the ‘TAG touch.’ Often verified by visitors when they mention that they entered the FBO as a client and left as a friend.
So, whether you are travelling for business or leisure, we can organise your private jet charter to Macau from start to finish, tailored to your unique requirements.
