Alternatively, we can also go to Macau with plane or helicopter.
My last visit to Macau early this year was a refreshing of my first visit in 1995 (if I am not mistaken).

Destination? Senado Square and of course the Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral!
The area is just a mini Europe in China.

Buildings there are beautiful. One of them is the tourist information center where I went there to get Macau map for free.

Once we are in Senado Square, there are more signs to find the Ruins of St. Paul’s. Walking there is interesting, small European type of street. Climbing up to the top may not be smooth especially on the weekend as there are tourists busy looking at shops on both sides. But it is worth the efforts, anyway it is not a long way up there.

Tourists who is rushing going to Macau, for the sake of ticking the box, will only take pics in front of the Ruins. However, this World Heritage Site has more interesting to see.

Just go up and visit the Museum of Sacred Art and Crypt, they are built at the bottom of the Ruins of the Cathedral.
