Some of my favorite childhood memories are the joyful times spent with my parents on a holiday, isolated from ordinary everyday activities. Between work commitments, household chores and day-to-day busyness of life, it’s easy for the family vacation to take a backseat. However, breaks with your loved ones are essential to keep the bond intact while stepping outside the comfort zone and having some fun. As I am thinking of my long-due adventure with my husband and parents, Bali comes to mind.
While Macau is only famous for its casinos, it has many hidden treasures that are waiting to be explored. From lip-smacking Portuguese food prepared by Michelin-star chefs and adrenaline-pumping adventure to larger-than-life live shows and quaint architecture, Macau has something in store for everyone
1. Hang around at Senado Square
They say: If you haven’t been to Senado Square, you haven’t been to Macau! It’s named after the Leal Senado Building and has been Macau’s urban centre for centuries. It is a lovely place to simply relax, may be, have cup of coffee or an ice-cream and take photographs. It is also a shopping and eating hub with numerous bylanes selling different things like souvenirs, clothes, cosmetics and local food items. The square is paved with beautiful Portuguese cobblestones and surrounded by pastel-coloured neo-classical buildings, creating a very European feel. All in all, this place is a splendid blend of Chinese and Portuguese cultural traits. Senado Square is at a walking distance from Ruins of St Pauls.
