  • 㺽境怡人,建築物充滿葡式風格色調,最適合龍友拍照及結隊遊覽,可惜12月份不是開花季節,否則更加理想。附近有不同風味餐廳,豐儉隨意,流連數數小時也樂而忘返。 
  • 這一區散步很舒服,每一棟住宅都有警衛(?)都很友善,能夠看到葡式住宅和生活的風貌、也有畫作展示,戶外還能遠眺金碧輝煌的各大飯店,整體氣氛悠閒舒適。

  • I love how quiet and relaxing the place is especially at night... The buildings are quite unique too!
  • Away from the hustle and bustle, this is a nice place to go for a walk while enjoying the scenery.
  • An ideal place for visitors to have a quick glance at the typical Portugal-styled houses at Macau. Worthy to spend one or two hours for a walk and picture taking.
  • Local shopping, temples, and great food in a tiny small town that is immediately dominated by the mega casinos. A little walkway from the Venetian Hotel, a visit is a must for non-gambling visitors staying on the Cotai Strip. Visit all the temples in the area
  • Stepping into any of the houses here brings you back in time. There are not that many things to see aside from the artifacts inside but for a taste of history, this is a must-see.
