Our tour guide took us to this place for around 1 hour. It was too crowded by travelers clicking their selfies all around. It was not so special place from tourist point of view but yes it holds some cultural attachment for which it must be visited on your trip to Macau. We clicked some photos there and were just...

I visited the ruins on a wet windy day with my family. The ruins are quite unique in the modern island of Macau but they do not have a lot of information about them around the ruins. They are a great lookout point of the whole city. There were too many people with umbrellas battling to have their photos outside... More

Travelling by a taxi from Cotai strip took, say 30 minutes.But walking is a MUST, through the narrow streets, up to this place - where motorized vehicles are not allowed. Therefore, the total time becomes sizable. After visiting the monument, on a rush day, if you can get the taxi back to the strip - you are lucky an have... More

Ok so we visited on a Sunday but having shuffled our way through the narrow street full of people we got to the bottom of the St Paul's ruins to find the steps up jam packed with people. As it's only a facade we decided we just couldn't elbow our way up the steps!! There is little of the Portuguese... More

A 17th century Portuguese church dedicated to Saint Paul the apostle. The ruins are one of Macau's best known landmarks which was destroyed by a fire in 18th century and only front wall was left.

Tourists usually will visit this place, without visiting this place seems like you have not been to Macau. The place is surrounded with lots of shops and most of the time being crowded.

the crowds who visit can make the steps difficult to navigate especially if you're worried about getting hit with a selfie stick but if you fancy yourself a photographer, this is a good vantage point.

The place is always lit up! The long walk before you can actually visit the place is the fun part. The streets are decorated amazingly - might be because we visited it during new years, but the place was turly an awesome location to have a good stroll! Though there isn't much to watch at the actual place, its a... More
