Macau Travel Guide and Macau Travel Information - TravelPuppy.com
Macau is located on a tiny peninsula at the mouth of the Pearl River. 2 bridges of 2.5 kilometres (1.5 miles) and 4.5 kilometres (2.8 miles) respectively link it to its nearest island, Taipa, which in turn is joined to the island of Côloane by a 2.2 kilometre (1.3 mile) long causeway.

At the farthest northern end of the peninsula, on a narrow isthmus, is the impressive gateway (Portas do Cerco, or Border Gate), which leads to the Zhongshan and Zhuhai and areas of the People’s Republic of China. Some 60 kilometres (37.5 miles) to the east - northeast, across the mouth of the river, lies Hong Kong.
