If you have ever been to Macau before, you might realise that Macau is a city that is more like a second Las Vegas. Everywhere is just like a copy of somewhere... they have "Venice", "Paris", "New York City" and so on in this small city. But have you ever thought of going to Macau because of Macau on its own? We bet you wouldn't want to go somewhere that looked like everywhere else without their original "style"? Today we are going to tell you two places that we found in Macao which is more like Macao, and you are going to love them both.
If you aren't a fan of casino, you definitely would love to explore the other side of Macau. We don't gamble, so most of the time we were eating and exploring nice places for pictures in Macau. The first place that we recommend you all to explore is R. do Padre Antonio, it's a street in between St. Anthony's Parish area and St. Lawrence's Parish area, and we found this place filled with lots of different installations. We most liked the Lantern which made it feel more Chinese. There's also some galleries and stores which sell loads of handmade products as well. It's definitely worth a visit.
The second place that we would recommend you to go is R. do Cunha. This place is very well-known for tourists as this area has got plenty of the souvenir stores and food that you cannot miss! But the main thing is they have also got spots for photos as well. We absolutely love this place and we just went there every single time when we visited Macao. This area isn't big enough for you to spend like a day though but you could perhaps go there about lunch time, then you could enjoy your food, take good pictures, and spend all your money on souvenirs! Woohoo!
Unfortunately we didn't really have chance to take many pictures when we were there but hopefully we would be able to do so when we came back there again, and again.
