    At first as it is not your homework up there on a day trip from Hong Kong S.A.R., went by taxi from the ferry terminal. The atmosphere is there. I think here I started a tourist base.

    The city's main square is a focal point for tourists. There are shops and restaurants for sale. I like the city.

    A public square surrounded by European architectural buildings that gives the feeling that you're in Europe instead of Macau. However, most of those buildings are converted into shops designed to trap tourists and the place can get quite crowded during peak hours. Still beautiful for taking pictures though and a relaxing place to hang out after a visit to Macau's famous landmarks.

    Nice place to take pics n to browse historical site. Its great to have some modern shops inside the old fashioned architecture buildings

    Popular tourist spot in Macau. Surrounded by Portuguese era buildings that all turned into shops make this place looks like a historical shopping space for tourists. Walking around this area and through the small alleys is really enjoyable. Go try visit the philathely museum, it's for free and perfect for the enthusiasts.

    Fight the crowds and get a pork chop sandwich.... well worth fighting the crowds. I would avoid buying the Portuguese tarts here as they are not as good as others.
