Four years ago, Duo Chen moved to Macau, China to study business, and she hasn't left. To get your bearings, you'll find Macau on a small peninsula across the bay from Hong Kong, filled with a mix of both European and Chinese influences (until 1999, Macau was a Portuguese territory).

A cluster of sprawling casinos has nicknamed Macau the "Las Vegas of Asia," but this town is more than extravagant malls and a sparkly skyline thanks to quirky stationary stores, food festivals, and a coffee shop that serves Portuguese egg tarts locals have called little drops of heaven.
