  • The front of the pavilion is also a hot punch. The dark gray shallow limestone floor and the history of the two sides of the building, with a very harmonious, especially the wavy lines, but also let this scene more than some of the live Songkran sense. Visitors can get up early and feel the state of the nation before the crowd has gathered.

  • This is one of the top two spots in macau. Here tourist can see a number of magnificent historical buildings built by former Portuguese colony. Also there are some other tourist spots nearby and people can simply walk from the square. whether on morning at night, there are lot of people so it doesn't matter when people will take a picture. The most beautiful in taking a picture is near the fountain. And Ruins Of Saint Paul is just a walking distance from the square.
  • Beautiful Portuguese buildings surrounding the square with Chinese shops mixed in the bag. The locals are helpful and can speak Portuguese, English, Cantonese and Mandarin. It is a very crowded place, but some of the public buildings offer a quieter area for you to chill out. Although we didn't experience any problems, we were told to keep our handbags at the front where you can keep an eye on it, but that's like most crowded places in the world, just don't draw attention to yourself.
  • You're in China but surrounded by Portuguese and Portuguese influenced buildings. It's a mind bender. Unfortunately you will not be alone. There are more people here than a big gypsy wedding so hold onto your everything's.
  • This is a beautiful part of old Macao. The churches and buildings here are a pleasure to look at and visit. The insides are well taken care of and maintain the dignity and grandeur of their construction.
  • If you love cookies like me, try bakery shop hopping and taste their free samples. Their Portuguese Tart is really delicious.
