“Crowded, as with all tourist spots in Macau”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

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.).

“Just a tourist street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

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.

“A typical tourist street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

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.

“Great place to shop and eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

A street big enough to walk for hours. Lots of good food, shopping and many shops selling almond cookies. Good place to buy souvenirs too

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

It's a food store street that sells Macau specialties. I think I counted like 4 Ko Kei shops on this street alone. If you stand and look at a product long enough, someone will feed you pork jerky or almond cookie. The samples are enough to make your lunch and it's an enjoyable walk up to the Ruins.
