Macau used to be 3 distinct islands--Macau, Taipa, and Coloane. Due to the process of "reclaiming land," Macau (where the most famous casinos are) has been connected to the mainland. The water between Taipa and Coloane has also been filled in, and the resultant area (CoTai) has become home to a number of new casinos.
