Macau Life




People

The Portuguese and the Chinese are the people who made possible the unique blending of the two cultures. The estimated population of Macau was 442,000 (as at December 1997), with 95% of its population being Chinese, and the rest being Portuguese, Europeans and others.

Language
The two official languages are Chinese and Portuguese. English is Macau's third language and is generally used in trade, tourism and commerce. Another widely spoken dialect is Cantonese.

Religion
Cultural and religious tolerance is one of the most notable features of the historical identity of Macau.
The majority of the Macanese are Buddhists, Taoists or Confucianists while about 7% of the population are Catholics and the rest are Protestants, Muslims, Hindus, etcs. who all co-exist side by side without any apparent ill-will.
