I don’t mind getting lost in alleys and nooks of Macau as most of its back streets flash a picturesque semblance of a classic hispanic movie set. And yes, it’s enchanting Portuguese-Chinese charm triumphantly lured me in sojourning again and again in its arms. But don’t be fooled by it’s classic beauty for behind it’s prim character is a peppy nightlife, thank you to its many hotels and casinos.
Resided in a rented AirBnb listed room in downtown Macau for three (3) days which gave me an opportunity to see Macau even more. And all those three days, I get to walk for 20 minutes along Rua de Coelho do Amaral, Rua de Santo Antonio and getting a glimpse of Igreja de Santo Antonio (St. Anthony Church), Ruinas de San Paulo (Ruin’s of St. Paul), Ingreja de San Domingos (St. Dominic’s Church) and Largo do Senado (Senado Square) to hop on buses that had shorter routes to my planned destinations. This particular post is dedicated in sharing my photo captures during those walks, and to give a few destination recommendations for my blog readers’ next Macau trip.
