No luxury hotels, no staying overnight, no shows, no gambling, no crazy shopping and no las vegas style buffet and clubbing in Macau. We ended up with a East meet West historic walking tour in Macau on the Chinese National Day. The whole tour took around 3-4 hours ( includes occasion stops and rest)
We had a Portuguese feast before we start the tour at Restaurante ESACADA . People recommended many dishes on openrice, but my favorites are African Chicken and Fries with cod fish <-Must have!! Nice ambiance, wish the price is more friendly.
2. St. Augustine Square
Love this green and the Portuguese style architecture. Inside it’s an old theatre used in the early 20s. It’s nice to walk around the town in these little quiet streets, avoiding crowded tourist groups and discovering beautiful new things.
Had a pause moment right here, on the downhill road. Getting a bit tired and have no idea where’s the next destination….
The House is very very old as you could see from the exterior. I think it needs some serious renovation or restoration. Very typical southern house style 🙂 I was lucky to listen to a mini student orchestra concert there.
5. Mandarin‘s House
6. The Lilau
Saw a tiffany blue building right there !
7. A-Ma Temple
Before heading back, we went to the Lord Stow’s Bakery & Cafe for the famous Portuguese tart. Can’t forget my wonderful first bite and yes, they have franchise in HK. So I won’t have to go all the way to Macau just for tarts.
