Start your enchanting excursion in Macau with a visit to Statue of Kum Iam first, the hub of Buddhism in Macau with a bronze figure, the goddess of Mercy, standing 21 meters (69 feet) high. The Portuguese style makes the statue unique in Chinese Buddhist culture.
Then drive to the landmark of Macau - Macau Tower. See from outside the 11th tallest tower in the world with a height of 338 meters (1109 feet) and appreciate the magnificent views of the towering skyscraper.
Afterwards, head to about 500-year-old A Ma Temple where Macau initially gets its name. It is sacred to Chinese sea-goddess Matsu who protects fishermen and merchants from dangers, which attracts the flows of visitors to pray for blessings. You may appreciate the transcendent atmosphere inside and discover the beauty of temple with classical Chinese design at the same time.
It is time to enjoy your buffet lunch in a local restaurant and after that, the tour is followed by Senado Square, the most bustling Macau's pedestrian street in the shape of triangle with strong exotic flavor. What will impress you most is the Portuguese pavement with dynamic tiled pattern and historical architectures in bright colors along the pavement on both sides.
Exit Senado Square to the Ruins of St. Paul's, the spectacular centuries-old stone façade standing on the hillside, 27 meters (89 feet) in height. It used to be the largest Catholic Church in Asia but unfortunately destroyed in the fire in 1835. Climb 68 stone steps to appreciate the ruins featuring Baroque and Chinese classical style, feel awe for its gorgeous decorations and marvelous stone carvings and immerse yourself in the architectural glamour.
