  • A classic sample of traditional Chinese architecture. It is very beautiful. It does not take much time to visit, just 10 or 15 minutes.  more »

  • House habited by a famous person in Macau. Now preserved as a show case of architectural and decorations of that old era.
  • UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Beautiful Cantonese style. Small and decent.
  • Unique sight along streets of Macau. Well preserved old style Chinese house. Nothing much to see though.
  • Definitely unique. A Chinese style multi-courtyard house with some beautiful architecture. Not as many tourists as other atractions nearby.
  • Nice colonial-styled place (entrance is free of charge) with surprisingly few visitors. Properly maintained & full of small interesting details - you can take some great pictures here
