South of Macao Peninsula, the island of Taipa is accessible via three bridges over the Pearl River. Connected to Coloane island to the south by the Cotai Strip, Taipa is home to most of Macao's residents, as well as the region's international airport. From its rural beginnings, the 20th century has seen Taipa undergo major redevelopment and these days it is considered an alternative city to the Peninsula, with its own hotels, casinos, shopping malls and the Macao Jockey Club racecourse.
