We walked a long way to find this place, but it was worth all the sweat. Definitely a must-see in this city!

You can tour the amazingly restored Chinese-style house of the famous Chinese author, Zheng Guanying. It was incredible to step inside the old style Chinese house with living quarters and cozy courtyards. Definitely stop here on the way to A-Ma Temple - you won't regret it!

Wonderfully and accurately restored, the Mandarin's House is a lesson in architecture. Those interested in climate and location-sensible design will enjoy it for its architectural quality; those exploring Macau's bustling streets will appreciate it for its tranquility, quiet courtyards, peaceful light and small, understated garden. Close to Lilau Square, it is a charming visit for a couple of hours. Free... More

The Mandarin House is a fantastically-preserved historic residence in Macau - indicative of what it was like for a wealthy merchant to live there in the 19th century. It will not take you a great deal of time to go round, but is well worth the visit as there are few such buildings left in Macau (or Hong Kong, for... More

I found it to be a worthwhile tour and it's a place where you can choose to spend either just a little amount of time or more if you have it. The gift shop is a great place to buy some gifts and crafts made by local artisans. A good alternative to some of the chintzy stuff you find in... More

Part of the "must do" World Heritage walk this is a glimpse back into the history books of a Mandarin's life and family 100+ years ago. Often the backdrop for cultural performances, take the time to slowly soak up the stories and enjoy the serene surrounds. Adjacent is the equally historic Lilau Square - and a 10 minute walk through... More

A fascinating place with lots of interesting nooks and crannies and some good entertainment - but can be a hot exploration in summer
