  • This group of Taipa Houses is worth a visit. The Portuguese architecture is a delight and there is even a house which is furnished. Entry is free. Quite a pleasant place to visit.

  • A collection of old colonial era houses that have been converted into galleries and a simple museum, overlooking a lake and tall hotels where the sea once was. A relaxing experience where you can just walk around and enjoy the scenery, as well as soak in the history of the place. The place boasts a nice view for photos as well, with a neighbouring garden with different themes throughout the year.
  • One of my favorite places in Macau especially since it's kind of away from all the casino happenings. :)) The houses are beautiful and well-maintained, there are also a lot of food establishments and souvenir shops nearby.
