You can reach this place by riding a free shuttle that's located near the Esso petrol station. The temple is modest where you can buy incense to pray and say your well wishes. I recommend going up a little to the top of the hill where there's a status and a nice panoramic view of Macua.

The temple is quite nice but the bus service is awful. The driver does wherever he pleases. Yesterday, May 9 at around 5pm, I waited around 40 min for the driver. He came down, picked up two friends, refused to let us and another couple in and just left up to the temple. This wasn't the first time I caught... More

A Ma Cultural Village is close to the world's tallest statue of the goddess A-Ma on the mountaintop on Macao's Coloane Island. Its most important that it structure is a pavilion-style front gate, a carved marble altar, Tin Hau Palace, Dressing Hall along with Bell Tower and Drum Tower. Temple in China is a very stately place, we have to... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the temple complex. It was very easy to reach and we were picked up by the van underneath the arch, and at the top we practically had the entire place to ourselves. If you're visiting this part of Macau it's definitely worth a stop to this temple as well as the nearby Giant Panda... More

A-Ma Cultural Village is far from other tourist attractions but still well worth a visit. It offers a close look at a beautiful temple complex and huge A-Ma (Matsu) goddess statue. After exploring the temples, you may want to check out Coloane Peak Park nearby with beautiful views of Coloane from high above and, if you like long walks, take... More

Get the free bus from the panda park up the mountain (well, you could walk it if you had an hour and lots of water) and the discovery is worthwhile with great views also over the island and ocean

I live and work in Macau, and in the past two years have seen the statue of Ma-Zhu atop the highest point in Macau (on Coloane), and wanted to go and visit this place. I had the opportunity to visit on August 26, 2013 with my girl friend, and we had a lovely visit. The temple is not an old... More

The A-ma cultural village was built only about 10 years ago as another spot for main-landers to visit who worship the deity A-ma. I'm a little torn about how I feel about the place. It doesn't really feel true. But the artistic craftsmanship is wonderful. There are great stone carvings, painted wood panels, intricate building details and vibrant colors everywhere.... More

There is a majestic A-ma statue at the top of Coloane Hill. You can take the bus to Seac Pai Van and stop at the bus stop next to the Esso petrol. If I am not mistaken Bus # 21, 21A, 15, 26 & 26A pass by this route. There is a free shuttle bus waiting at the open space... More
