The street is not long but full of shops which sell almost the same local snacks - pork jerky and almond biscuit. Boring place to shop but the nearby sightseeing spots such as St.Dominic's Church, Ruínas da Antiga Catedral de São Paulo ( World Heritage) and the Fortaleza do Monte are worthy to see.

lots of people, shops are mostly similar. Mostly selling the almond cookies. The building structure minus the people around you, will make you feel that you are in Europe. The influence from Portugal is really deep

Walk walk walk you see something you feel delicious. Eat and look around, there is more to buy. This is the street walking up to St.Paul Cathedral and museum.

Tripadvisor should pay more attention to naming conventions. There is no "Dasanba street" in Macau. There is either Rua do Sao Paolo (Saint Paul street, if somebody is eager to translate) or hieroglyphs set in order to imitate the name, actually sounding like "ta sun pa" = "da Sao Pa(olo)"

Just your average tourist spot, plenty of people going about their thing, very crowded. Some nice little shops and some average photo opportunities.

Whilst much of a muchness after awhile because of the repetition of pork selling shops, it is nonetheless all part of the wonderful experience of traditional Macau. Lots of people pushing and shoving but the craziness is enjoyable after the leadup of colourful buildings, brilliantly cobblestoned paths, narrow laneways and tourist sights. After you navigate the street you are rerwarded... More

Extremely crowded little lane leading up to the cathedral ruins. I reckon there are some shops worth popping into, but the entire experience was generally marred by the incessant tide of sweaty bodies. Most of the shops sell things that can be found elsewhere in Macau (egg tarts etc.).

A clone of every other tourist street in China, this street is full of shops selling the same stuff as everywhere else. The only discerning feature is the ruin of St. Paul's at the end. You will end up here, but it isn't a place to cherish.

You virtually have to walk up this street as part of historic Macau, however it is very similar to many streets in many Chinese cities. Standard tourist shops (Adidias, Nike, etc etc), and food shops (all quite similar) with standard Chinese (Canton) hawker food. Prices higher than similar shops in (say) Shenzhen.
