This post I’m not going to talk about where you should visit in Macau as the places in Macau are quite well known already.
So here I am telling you why you should take a night walk around the famous Ruins of St. Paul’s and Fisherman’s Wharf etc just to avoid crowd. =D
Perhaps I’m lucky enough to have a friend working in Macau so before I visit the place, I asked her opinion about visiting these places at night and she told me it was totally safe!
I found my accommodation on AirBnb and it turned out the apartment was just right beside Ruins of St. Paul’s, and I’m not joking, it’s really just RIGHT BESIDE as you can see I can take such close picture through the window.
So yeah, I can definitely inspect the crowd on this popular ruins from day to night, at night, this place has some young crowd sitting around and gossiping and chit-chatting.
The road beside the ruins just before the entrance to my Air Bnb apartment! And this popular pink wall below is just the street next to the apartment too and I loves chilling around the place, sitting on the bench.

Macau Senado Square
The Senado Square is the square which will eventually leads you to the Ruins of St. Paul’s.
西湾安记 (Sai Van On Kei Restaurant)
This restaurant is located in an alley at Senado Square, it’s kinda hard to tell how to actually get to this restaurant but it’s crowded all the time, perhaps getting some help from the local will do the direction magic!
The popular Venetian Hotel
I get to visit the one in Macau just right before my trip to Las Vegas, so yeah, there’s not much differences between these 2 places but just the crowd which you can’t really avoid in Macau. =.=”
We are all familiar with the buildings and architectures in Hong Kong & Macau which is really similar as I believe we all Malaysians grown up watching TVB dramas. =P
Nam Peng Cafe 南屏雅敘
This cafe which located in 十月初五日街 (Rua de Cinco de Outubro), which was once a prosperous street in Macau and somehow made popular by one of the recent Hong Kong Movie in 2015 –> 十月初五的月光 (Return of the Cuckoo).
Nam Peng Cafe is a tea cafe that opens in 1968. It is one of the oldest tea cafe and it is the first restaurant that has air conditioners in Macau. Now it is not as prosperous as it used to be, instead, it remains a strong flavor of local life.
Yin Yong and Nam Peng Sandwich
Macau Pork Chop Bun
One of the popular food which you can’t really missed when you’re in Macau!
Portuguese Egg Tart @ Margaret’s Cafe e Nata
Just one block away from the Hotel Sintra this place is a great find.
Address: 17B, Goldlion building, Rua do Comandante Mata e Oliveira,Macau, China
Speaking of Macau as the second Las Vegas, I doubt that. Except for all the casino hotels which is kind of similar, the culture experiences are definitely different and not to mentioned the foods & people are totally two different experience.

Oopss hehehehe 😆 not really because the crowd came by the time we already wake up at around 10am to 11am, so it’s still good to stay close to the ruins
