Nothing special but worth having a stroll through since you can't say you've explored Macau until you do. It's a European-style square, with shops. Koi Kei at every corner, and delicious Chinese food abounds. Walk for 10-15 minutes in the right direction and you"ll find...More

Its a must see but you have to join the flow of people. Many food shops close by. If you want good pictures go early before the crowds
