Chapter 5 discusses various aspects of life and society in Macao, with a brief introduction to Macao’s three traditional industries: gambling, opium and prostitution. Other industries included dried fish and firecrackers. Amenities and amusements were few. There were three cinemas in operation, but with hazards of bombs being planted. Music was part of Macao life, there were also clubs, sports events, and restaurants, as well as many places of historical interest, especially the Garden and Grotto of Camoens, the Protestant Cemetery and Guia Lighthouse.
