2. Grab a traditional Portuguese dinner

Macao was colonized by Portugal before 1999. As a result, Portuguese culture is deeply immersed into many corners of Macao.

Many Portuguese settled and opened Portuguese restaurants in the special administrative region, but the flavor is more adaptable to Chinese people.

3. Enjoy a Portuguese egg tart

One of the must-try local foods in Macao is the Portuguese egg tart.

This iconic dessert is different from the traditional Cantonese egg tart. One of the visible differences is the slightly burned caramel top. The creamy custard filling, flaky pastry crust and the crunchy caramelized top create an incredible blend of flavor.

Among all bakeries selling Portuguese egg tarts, the most popular is Lord Stow's Bakery in Coloane. Gradually, the bakery has become a fixed tourist spot in Macao, where the queue outside will never be empty.

The Ruins of St. Paul is the signature landmark of Macao. The ruins consist of the St. Paul's College and the Church of St. Paul, built in 1583. However, after three intense fires in 1595, 1601 and 1835, the church was seriously damaged.

Miraculously, after the vigorous cycles of rebuilding and fires, the huge façade and the front stairway remain unburned.
