Be sure to bring an empty stomach to this enclave teeming with local snacks. At first, we were under the impression that pork chop buns are its focal point. Wonders of wonders, my favourite muah chee with fresh fruits takes the icing of the cake....More

Perfect to buy the famous cookies of Macau or the dried beef. I like the village for the Portuguese influences in architecture and the warm feeling when you enter the village. Not recommended to visit this area during Chinese Holidays!

We basically drove through, and wished we had more time here. There are lovely pubs and tavernas - we ate scrumptious pork chop buns at a place, and then great dinner at a portugese place. a nice change from the strip hotels and malls

Place was good with Portuguese buildings. Nicely decorated. Loads of Portuguese restaurants and other cuisine that taste good too. But the place rather small and my family and I finished the whole place within 30-45mins. Nice experience though
