07 Free things to do in Macau - Showcasing culture, history and traditions!

Being a former colony of the Portuguese, there are some interesting things to see and do. Here are some of the free things you shouldn't miss out on when in Macau.


Historic Centre

This is the place to go in order to witness the blend of cultures of the Chinese and Portuguese. The blend is truly intriguing. The culture is best experienced by marvelling at the architecture the two great nations have left behind, that you can still witness today. To add to that, this kind of architecture cannot be found anywhere else in the world. These attractive structures deserve to be photographed for memories. Some of these buildings shouldn't be missed out on when frolicking Macau. Besides, if you are looking for accommodation in Macau, five-star hotels, the likes of Hotel Okura Macau offer a comfortable experience.


Largo do Senado

This place is considered a must visit. Tourists also say that if you don't see the Largo do Senado then you haven't really experienced Macau at all. You can relax here and take some amazing photos that can be uploaded on Instagram. Besides, there are many souvenir shops, cafes and fashion stores around that you can pay visits to.


St Paul's Cathedral

Ruins of this cathedral should be witnessed when in Macau. This is the most popular landmark in town. Although you may only see ruins of the walls left behind, this is an epicentre of all things history in Macau. Thus, you need to pay a visit to it, no matter what. The intricate details on the walls are incredible. In addition, there is also wheelchair access for the ones who cannot climb stairs. It's accessible by everyone!


Dasanba Street

Another historical site in Macau is Dasanba Street. The street is dotted with many food outlets and stores selling Hakka and Canton food. And don't miss out on their cookies! Go through Dasanba Street to witness the ruins of the St Paul's Cathedral. It's truly an enjoyable walk.


St Domingo's Church

Right at the heart of the city of Macau, stands the attractive church of St Domingo's. The church stands brilliantly among all the street shops around it. The church was styled by the Portuguese. You can also see other epic displays when in the church.


A-Ma Temple

The locals pay tribute to Ma Kok, the Sea Goddess, who is believed to protect and save the people who are venturing the seas. Thus, people built the A-Ma temple serving as a tribute to this Goddess. Also, the temple is one of the oldest in town and was built way back in 1488.


Taipa Village

The Taipa Village is actually a peaceful place. The village showcases some houses built by the Portuguese which are still maintained and people also live here. Besides, you can explore some souvenir shops, restaurants and also dessert shops selling some exquisite sweets.
