AbstractOn 20 December 1999, Macao reverted from being a Portugal colony to being a special administrative region of China. In the past few years, Macao is one of the most successful cities in the world to attract tremendous investments. Once a seedy sideshow to nearby Hong Kong, Macao has surpassed Las Vegas to become the world's No. 1 gambling market. This profile discusses the radical political transformations, the rapid economic growth, physical expansion and the consequent social and environmental challenges. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
