Macau has reopened to the outside world after the pandemic, just in time for the Chinese New Year holiday in Jan 2023. One of the interesting events that was held this year was blocking of a large section of Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro and holding a pedestrian zone event here on the first couple days of the new year.

During this time, there were buskers, food stands and fun stalls setup with artists, CNY (Year of the Rabbit) themed gifts and the likes. The event had park benches and lots of decor including green artificial turf like grass and floating cloud balloons. Importantly, the event seems to have been a smashing success as the streets were filled to the brim when we passed by, easily drawling in thousands of people to enjoy themselves during this rare opportunity to walk down the normally traffic choked street in the middle of the peninsula.

We thought this event was great and if extended and promoted properly would be a good way to alleviate the normally crowded conditions of nearby Senado Square and the Ruins of St. Paul, which had become overwhelming at times during CNY in the years leading up to the pandemic. Great job and hopefully we will see this event held again in the future along Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro.

Newcomers or residents alike, Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, or the new road by locals, is unmissable. It is the de facto commercial heart of Macau frequented by tourists. Although the street itself is quite touristy with some unappealing souvenir shops, a stroll along some of the most important buildings in the former Portuguese colony still enjoyable.

Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro is a major thruway road that cuts through the Macau Peninsula dividing the Historic Centre of Macau down the middle. This avenue was constructed in 1918 and quickly became a commercial hub, thriving with activity.

The street is lined with early 20th-century buildings, many European and mixed Chinese-European in architecture and in a varying array of condition. The footpaths on both sides are surfaced with Portuguese style cobblestone patterns as well. Popular sightseeing takes place at the Leal Senado building and Senado Square which are found in the centre of Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro.

These days, Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro is usually teeming with pedestrians and vehicles, making it extremely crowded during much of the day. However, that is not the case at present due to the Coronavirus Outbreak that has shut much of the city down. You will still see some vehicles passing up and down the avenue. However, foot traffic is as low as I've seen in the past 15 years, making it much easier to walk here and to see the buildings and cobblestone pavements. That is an unexpected benefit of the present virus situation that will soon pass once Macau is opened back up and visitors begin to pour back into the city.

Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro is not so much an attraction as it is a drop off point as well as a natural divide for the Macau World Heritage collection of attractions. While most of the famous attractions are to the north of this Avenue, an equal number are to the south and southwest. Most visitors, especially day-trippers from Hong Kong and those only staying one night in Macau, concentrate their time north of Ave. de Almeida Ribeiro

Near the drop point for Senado Square there is a Pacific Coffee for those needing a quick caffeine or morning drink before beginning their sight seeing. There are a few other places to pick up a drink or bite to eat along Ave. de Almeida Ribeiro as well as some jewelry, gold and other shops and banks. Further north along this avenue, you will find the interesting Pawn Shop museum and nearby Rua du Felicidade.

To the north of Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, you can visit Senado Square, the famous St. Domingos Cathedral, the iconic Ruins of St. Paul, the beautiful Camoes Garden. To the south and southwest is where you will find St. Lawrence's Church, the Mandarin House, A-Ma Temple and other attractions, all being part of the UNESCO World Heritage collection referred to as the Historic City Centre.

Hint: Due to the volume of attractions, we recommend spending two days seeing the World Heritage sights. First, visiting those north of Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro. Then visiting those south of this avenue the following day. Seeing up to 25 attractions and others of interest, like Rua du Felicidade is just too much for a single day.

For those interested in Portuguese shops and specialty items in Macau, there is a new shop called Loja Das Conserva which has opened at No 9, Travessa do Aterro and Rua dos Mercadores, just 30 seconds off Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, the main street which passes through the city centre of Macau.

Loja Das Conserva is a tidy, well organised and attractive little shop selling canned fish and other goods made throughout Portugal. The tins are well decorated, colourful and collectively help make this an attractive and interesting shop to pop in for a visit. Lots of information about the various canneries being represented and promoted and quite a few variety (ingredients and flavours) to consider buying and trying.

We have bought a handful of the canned tuna and mackerel tins and have found them to taste good. A bit pricy compared to locally made canned fish but you expect that when buying imported goods. Items purchased here are fun to try and can make for good souvenirs for friends and family back home.

I want to share a road in Macau, but I don’t know how to say it in English. So that I use its Portuguese name and it’s easy for you to find it.
I have studied in Macau for almost one year, and that already become one of my habits to visit Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro every weekend. Last night, I went there to experience the Light Festival! It’s a common activity there and it’s quite amazing. We can see absolutely fabulous lights and that just like a dream. The shapes of light is rich such as carriage, high-heeled shoes and flowers. It’s a good choose to take pictures there, so it better for you to bring your SLR camera and selfie stick. What’s more, you can also buy cosmetics in sasa and taste special snack there. Every time I go to sasa for shopping, that’s very crowded. And most of the customers are visitors. I think maybe some people come to buy cosmetics specialized because things in sasa are not only abundant but also cheap. Last but not the least, you can taste durian ice creams and pork chop bun in Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro. That’s what you can’t have in other places.
This place is fun but it’s always crowded, so it’s better for you to come in weekdays.

This avenue divides the older part of Macau with the newer part. The area around the street are beautiful. It makes you feel like you are not in China.

This is probably one of Macau’s busiest thoroughfares, an eclectic marriage of the old and the new, and all others in between. Take the time to slowly and leisurely stroll along this avenue to appreciate and fully imbibe the unintentional lessons it offers on how culture can be interspersed with progress without one causing harm to the other. The slow and the fast peacefully co-exist here, quite a lovely paradox.

Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro is a north-south avenue that runs through Macau Peninsula. It is also a natural east-west divide line for the Historic Centre of Macau. Most visitors concentrate their time and efforts on the World Heritage attractions to the east of Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro. However, there are some impressive places to visit west of the avenue as well.

There are some interesting things to see on Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro as well. The avenue is lined with historic buildings now mostly lined with commercial businesses and eateries trying to capture tourist traffic and spending in Macau. The buildings are nice to look at as are the Portuguese style cobblestone patterns that line the sidewalks on both sides of the street.

Note: Unfortunately, Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro is ridiculously busy during much of the day, pretty much every day of the year. Early in the morning and late in the evenings, its fine to walk up and down this avenue. However, expect shoulder-to-shoulder crowds and slow going the rest of the day. Take side streets instead if you are trying to make your way somewhere and want to do so in a hurry.
