  • We went there after dinner, so it is different to see the night view and it is near the river, you can enjoy night view of all hotel / resort too. 
  • 這個博物館好靚,是以前懷舊西式建築的歷史,建築物保留得好好,花園對著一個很大的荷花池,整個博物館是拍照的好地方 
  • 不大,中西并存,很有澳门特色的地方。、 这次来的时候适逢住宅群整体修整,但并不影响对这个地方的参观。因为也是建筑的同行,所以特别看了一下他们修整的细节,是尽量按照原本进行的修复,很期待完成之后的成果。因为是中秋节当日,作业的工人并不多,每间屋子只有一两个,工作的过程很讲规矩,并不影响在外面散步居民和游览的旅客。 旁边就是湿地公园,开放式的,很好奇这里居然会有湿地,并还进行着保育。坐在公园边上的长椅...  read more »
  • 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
  • In this holiday, I go someplace in Macau and find the special art picture to finish this assignment. This day makes me very tired, and finally I got two photos. This two photos is not some paintings or sculptures, is two buildings, in your opinion, this two buildings is not any artwork, but in my opinion, this two building is very beautiful and amazing, it attract me to look at them. Some time ago, Macau is Portugal's colonial, so lots of thing in Macau is affected by them, especially building. The first picture is Taipa Houses-Museum, and the second photos is Ruins of St. Paul, this two building is also affected by the Portuguese, the style of them is same, and they are also building, the material of them is same too, but the feeling of them is different, the picture one is shiny green, the color of it makes people feel comfortable, and some warm colors makes me happy. And the second one, the color of it is gray, and this color make people feel upset and let people to recall the sad past, so I think that Ruins of St. Paul is a sad building. And this assignment makes me know more art in Macau, although I am a Macau people and live in Macau for many years, and I don’t know that art is everywhere in my live.
  • Romantic and classic view of Portuguese hut. With lotus on the lake in there right season
  • Free entrance during Sunday. Cute building and some Portuguese history sharing.
