About Macau

Located on the southeast coast of Mainland China, Macau has been a point of intersection between Chinese and Western culture for four hundred years, particularly Portuguese culture. You can see the fusion of cultural essences in the details, patterns, and imagery used in Macau’s architecture, nearly everywhere you look. Of particular interest is the Historic Centre of Macau, where the old buildings still thrive, teeming with life and brimming with the mysteries of Macau’s multicultural heritage. The area covered by Macau is quite small, only 29.9 square kilometers, but its food, ancient architecture, shopping and rich nightlife attract countless tourists.

Macau
Macau is a glittering oasis on the Pearl River Delta. The tiny territory covers just over 32 square kilometers, yet it contains a multitude of rich experiences. Narrow streets and tight corners conceal stately Portuguese colonial-era architecture. Across the harbor, towering casinos draw visitors from around the world. The famous Ruins of St. Paul’s stand solemn watch as visitors wander nearby markets and shops. Though Macau is able to claim the title of the world’s most densely populated territory, there’s a tranquility to be found in the fishing villages around Coloane. When you visit Macau, you will instantly recognize the charm and hopefully discover all this unique destination has to offer.

If you want to know more about Macau, how can you miss the Macau Museum? The Macao Museum was on the fortification platform behind the landmark of St. Paul in Macau. It ised to be a military centre. It was not until 1998 that it was changed into a museum. It is a good place to learn about Macau. It takes 15 Australian dollars to go to the museum. Credit cards or Alipay cannot be used here. The museum only accepts payment in cash. There are no toilets in the museum. You can take pictures inside the museum, but be sure not to use the flash.

The Macau Fortress is part of the oldest surviving Western-style fort building complex in China. It used to be the centre of military defence facilities. It is now part of the historic city of Macau and is a famous tourist attraction. The large artillery platform of Macau is located on the side of the Dabanba archway. The artillery platform was built during the Ming Shenzong period in 1616. It was owned by the church and was built to protect the St. Paul's clerics. It was used to defend against pirates and then turned into a military facility area. There are giant steel guns around the fort. Although the ancient artillery has lost its military role, it has become an ancient cultural relic and historical witness of Macao. The large turret covers an area of about 10,000 square meters. It was originally the memorial platform of the Jesuit Church of St. Paul (the predecessor of the Ruins of St. Paul), which protected the Jesuit industry in Macao and was later converted into a large castle fort by the Australian and Portuguese governments. The construction of the Grand Fortress lasted 10 years and was completed in 1626.

When traveling in Macau, in addition to visiting various world cultural heritage sites, there is still a place not to be missed. It is the Fisherman's Wharf. Located on the coast of the new reclamation area of Macau's Outer Harbour, it is a shopping mall and recreation centre that resembles the European and American Fisherman's Wharf. There are various bars, restaurants and entertainment centres in the area. The buildings are different in shape and rich in colour, and each one is a work of art.

Transportation: You can take the free bus to Fisherman’s Wharf or take the free bus to Sands and walk.

Macau is known as the city of churches, so when you travel to Macau, you can walk to the church to feel its sacredness and romance. When the Portuguese arrived in Macao hundreds of years ago, they brought a Western Catholic faith culture. Therefore, Catholic churches in Macau can be seen everywhere. Each church is designed with a unique style and elegant decoration. The unique atmosphere makes it hard for people to resist going into the church to walk. The exotic St. Joseph's monastery is more solemn and sacred against the blue sky. There is a long stone staircase in front of the church.
