Anybody that goes to Macau definitely for sure will visit the Ruins of St Paul’s Catheral Church. It’s like a symbol for Macau, if you didn’t visit there, more and less means that you didn’t went to Macau before. I’m sure everyone know about this place, you see it in the TV, newspaper, books, poster, net, my blog.
To save cost, we took the shutter bus from The Venetian to Sands Casino then from Sands, we took a cab. It took about 10-15 minutes to arrive at the Ruins of St. Paul’s. The city is quite small actually and there’s not much high rise building.
Here’s the church. No, it’s a wall. There’s nothing left, a flight of stairs, and the a piece of wall of the church. So you can’t really say it’s a church because it’s not an enclosed building. It was a church, it is a wall.
Nothing you can do there except snapping photos around and looking at people. Walking down the stairs will bring you to a street where you can do some shopping.
You see, in Penang, when kids are free, after school dismiss, they hang out in the shopping mall. Though, in Macau, don’t surprise to see teenagers at the Ruins of St. Paul’s. Eating burger and talking. I wonder why?
Oh, actually at the bottom of the wall. Down the street, it’s actually a shopping district. There’s no shopping mall in Macau, but there’s shopping street.
There’s Giordano, Bossini, Quiksilver and many shops there.
There’s so happenings. Tourist and locals can be seen everywhere. I don’t like quiet city. I love fast moving city, where there’s people everywhere.
I can say they do their tourism well. Unlike here, people didn’t demand for the best but just at the satisfactory point. Like “Got can already, no need to make until the best”.
I bought nothing there. Just walked around with mom, she bought something but not me. Haha. I got no idea what to buy that time, so just snapping around with my camera. But Ruins of St Paul’s was fun even though there’s nothing to play, but we did window shopping and ate the portugese tart there. Delicious!
