The former island of Taipa has recently been merged with Macau and Coloane by means of land reclamation. In its northern part starts the casino area of Macau. Here the Venetian casino and hotel has been inaugurated and construction of other hotels and casinos was ongoing in November 2007. In its southern end Taipa retains its cultural heritage with charming colonial neighbourhoods and a number of historic sites and temples. At the southern end of Taipa lies the Macanese houses museum, which shows how wealthy Macanese families used to live
