Nice shops on the two sides of the street, very easy to get around and to know about the traditional food, architechture, and local people's lifestyle. Comparing to Hong Kong, macau is way cleaner and organized, or at least I felt so. The paving of the sidewalks are also nice and comfortable to walk on.

In the narrow street leading up to the ruins of St. Paul's this street is thronging with tourists and shops selling their wares. Prime amongst them, and one of the biggest reasons for the crowds, are the shops giving out free samples. Primary amongst those are the pork jerky vendors, but plenty of sweet desserts can be sampled, especially the... More

There's no better way to uncover the essence of a city than by walking through its streets. To enable you to explore at your own pace and really appreciate the culture and history of this unique city and try out the local delicacies.

Recommended by locals but I found it to be filled with average shops. You'd have to walk off the main branch to find some good snack stalls.

After visiting the Ruins of St. Paul and getting the obligatory photo of ourselves standing at the bottom of the stairs, we followed our tour guide down this street for a second longer-range photo of the ruins and a rapid immersion in the hybrid Portuguese-Chinese cultural heritage of Macau. This area is a center for tourism for those who aren't... More

Such energy and great people watching in addition to a great photo opportunity. The stairs are the perfect frame for the Ruins of St. Paul and at the bottom of the stairs, a great street with shops, street food and restaurants greet you. It is a "must go" area of Macau and will give you such a sense of the... More

The road leading to the Ruins of St. Paul Cathedral .. very touristy, festive, with lots of stores and tourist shops along the side streets. Busy yet clean and safe .. of what a tourist street should be.

The tourist centre of Macau away from the Casinos. Great view of it from the ruins and it has a real old world feel with the cobbles etc... No need to buy food as they give away so many free samples.

After Monte Forte and the ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral, we walked through the street to St. Dominic’s Church. My impressions of the area are as follows: • The steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral leading to the street reminded me of the Spanish Steps in Rome. Like the steps in Rome, it leads you to a narrow street (narrower than... More
