After enjoying a good breakfast, let us go to visit Macau. You are scheduled to take a boat at Hong Kong Port to Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Pier in Macau, close to the old city area. After about one hour on the boat, you will go ashore. When you arrive, the local tour guide will take you to Ruins of St. Paul’s. As a World Cultural Heritage Site, it is one of the most renowned landmarks in Macau. It was once the front door of St. Paul’s Church built in 1637. Featuring the combination of architectural styles in the east and those during the period of European Renaissance, the structure is shaped into a pyramid with sophisticated statuary, hailed as “a three-dimensional Bible”.
After the appreciation of Ruins of St. Paul’s, you will go to visit Mont Fortress beside it. Established in 1616, the Fortress was initially the property of a church as a shelter for clergymen of St. Paul’s Church. Later on, it was converted into a military facility. As the core of the defensive system of Macau, it once served as the residence of the governor of Macau. With an area of 10,000 m2, the Fortress is trapeziform with a side length of about 100 meters. Besides luxuriant ancient trees, there are huge cannons, many cultural relics, and historical structures.

The square is shaped into a narrow triangle which is wide in the south and narrow in the north. It’s paved with gravel as a whole, looking like waves from a distance. You can find a bench over there to have a good rest and appreciate rows of buildings with European features, many of which have been listed as monuments and buildings of great architectural arts. In the center of the square stands a beautiful fountain as a landmark.
The last destination in the morning is A-Ma Temple. With a history of more than five hundred years, the Temple is the most ancient one among the great three Buddhist temples in Macau. Tucked away in the southwest of Macau, it is encompassed by towering ancient trees, forming gorgeous landscapes of the sea, mountains, and cliffs. There are several halls with A-Ma enshrined. Legend has it that a woman called A-Ma from Fujian Province was a prophet. After her death, her soul always appeared on the sea and helped merchants and fishermen in trouble. Thus, residents in Fujian Province built the temple to enshrine her. It is a legendary temple. In the 1980s, it caught fire at midnight and the whole temple was burned to the ground except the A-Ma statue in the shrine that remained intact in the fire except that it was only blackened. Each year, numerous believers in A-Ma swarm into this place to pray for blessings from the start of midnight on New Year’s Eve.
After lunch, you will leave for Macau Tower. Being 338 meters high from the ground to its top, it is ranked tenth among independent sightseeing towers all over the world.
