| Macau Fisherman's Wharf :
The first ever themed entertainment attraction in the tourism industry of Macau , Macau Fisherman's Wharf is located at the outer harbor, occupying a total area of 1 million square feet, 40% of which was reclaimed. The project is co-developed by renowned businessmen, Dr. Stanley Ho and Mr. David Chow, with total investment anticipated to reach HKD1.2 billion. Macau Fisherman's Wharf is a combination of entertainment, retail, food, hotel, marina and convention facilities as well as a blend of architectural aspects and Latin cultures of Macau . Be it for business or pleasure, visitors will surely find a brand new experience in this world-class entertainment complex.
A-Ma Cultural Village : Close to the world's tallest statue of the goddess A-Ma (also known as Tian Hou), which stands on a 170-metre high peak on a mountaintop on Macau's Coloane Island, a 7,000-square meter cultural complex celebrates the beloved deity's legend. The development of the A-Ma Cultural Village was started during the Chung Yeung festival in 2001 shortly after the A-Ma Cultural and Tourism Festival of Macau. Today, construction of the Qing Dynasty-style complex is nearly finished. Surely the village, which comprises a bell tower, drum tower, carved marble altar in the Tian-Hou Palace, a dressing hall, museum and shops will attract many A-Ma devotees and interested tourists, especially those from the Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Fujian Province, where the goddess A-Ma is believed to have been born more than 1,000 years ago.
Mueseums of Macau : The Museum of Macao was inaugurated on April 18, 1998 . Its aim is to preserve the cultural traditions, usages and habits, which specifically belong to Macau , in a place where East, and West have so peculiarly learnt how to meet and to live side by side along the centuries. Located at the Monte Fort and facing St.Paul's Ruins (the entrance is made by this side), the Museum also occupies the ancient Fortress, which, dominating the Inner Harbor , was built by the Jesuits at the beginning of the 17th century.
Saint Paul 's Church : The church was built in 1602 adjoining the Jesuit College of St. Paul's, the first Western college in the Far East where missionaries such as Matteo Ricci and Adam Schall studied Chinese before serving at the Ming Court in Beijing as astronomers and mathematicians. The church, made of taipa and wood, was brilliantly decorated and furnished, according to early travelers. The facade of carved stone was built in 1620-27 by Japanese Christian exiles and local craftsmen under the direction of Italian Jesuit Carlo Spinola.
Saint Francis Xavier Church : Built in 1928, this chapel follows the baroque style of Macau' s major churches. It has a cream and white facade with oval windows and a bell tower. It stands behind the monument commemorating the local victory over pirates in 1910. The chapel contains some of the most sacred relics of Christian Asia. In a silver reliquary is a bone from the arm of St. Francis Xavier, who followed his missionary successes in Japan by coming to the China coast, where he died in 1552 on Sanchuan Island , 50 miles from Macau .
Macau Beaches : Both Cheoc Van Beach and Hác-Sá Beach are popular with swimmers and sunbathers. The water is clean although it often appears brown because of silt from the Pearl River . Cheoc Van Beach occupies a sheltered cove on the west side of Coloane Island . Beyond Cheoc Van is Hác-Sá Beach , where the long beach, with its unique black-tinged invites walking by the sea. Along the beach are a youth hostel, the Youth Centre for Water Sports, and a sports complex with an Olympic-size swimming pool, children's pool, tennis courts, and a sports field.
