Current Music: Somewhere Only We Know (Natasha Bedingfield’s Version Radio 1 Live Lounge)
I love Macau’s unique blend of Portuguese and Chinese heritage, and there are tons of sites which reflect both cultures. With no real plan, we wander aimlessly through tourist attractions and small back alleys, letting our free schedule allow us to get lost and found at will.Those who like to do a bit more than just gamble in the casinos should take their time to visit Senado Square (My favorite attraction in Macau) which is paved Portuguese style. The pastel colored old and historical buildings that make up the square, gives it a Mediterranean feel. The best part of our Senado Square trip: Free samples of jerky (I was snacking on these for hours) and polvoron with almond. They just give out bite after bite of nearly everything on their shelves with no complaint.
Livararia Portuguesa E Galeria De Arte (Bookstore, Souvenir Shop) situated right smack in the middle of Senado Square
Ruins of St. Paul’s. The great ruined facade and staircase to the St. Paul’s Church, if it weren’t already so obvious with the crowd, this is one of Macau’s famous tourist attraction.
Macau was built by the Portuguese. It’s old urban architecture is one of the most attractive features of the city.
View from the St. Paul’s staircase. I like how the European designs gave an Oriental slant in actual building.
Combination of Portuguese and Chinese designs and new buildings, all gently crammed together in the same city.
Macau’s historical old city, its churches, statues, parks, and monuments give the city a romantic feel.
Random shot at the Square.
If you like people watching, The Senado Square is a perfect place. lol
The combination of European-Chinese designs has charmed almost all visitors to the place.
