  • Taipa's old town is worth a visit. You can buy a customary and it has good restaurants

  • 外觀非常乾淨,粉綠粉黃粉紅等等的外牆顏色令人嘗心悅目,看似經常油外牆的很新淨,係影相的好地方,附近都有很多食店(近官也街)。但希望一些同胞不要把手信一袋袋地排開,然後忘我地蹲在大屋前,會阻擾其他人影相的。 
  • 吃饱喝足后从热闹的官也街漫步过去,在缓缓的坡路上两边丛林花径,环境十分幽静,走过圣母堂,一幢幢风格相似又各具特色的小楼错落有致地呈现在眼前,背面是一个湖,应该是填海后形成的吧,整个就像一个大园林。这里离新濠天地,威尼斯人也就一箭之遥,顺便走过去玩玩也不错。

  • 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.
