Geography
Macau is located on the southeastern coast of China with an overall area of 21.45 sq. km. and comprises of a peninsula and 2 islands in the Pearl River Delta.
The city of Macau is built on the peninsula which is linked to its nearest island of Taipa by two bridges - 2.5 km and 4.5 km respectively. Taipa is joined to the island of Coloane by a 2.2 km causeway.
The imposing gateway "Portas do Cerco" (Border Gate) built in 1849 on a narrow isthmus at the northern end of the peninsula, joins Macau to China's Guangdong Province.

Climate
Macau's climate is moderate to hot, with an average annual temperature of just over 20C. The humidity is high with an average range between 75% and 90%.
Autumn (October - December) is the best season as days are sunny and warm and humidity low. Winter (January - March) is cold but sunny.
The humidity starts to build up in April and from May to September, the climate is hot and humid with rain and occasional tropical storms (typhoons). It is best to avoid June and October as typhoons are most common during that period.
