Most tour packages to Macau will include trips to not just the newest spots in town, but also visits to old monuments, which preserve the spirit of what this city was. Given that Macau used to be a colony of the Portuguese, there are numerous buildings that show a definite influence of their architectural style, especially reflected in few churches. Tourists should definitely visit the Ruins of St. Paul's, Chapel of St. Francis Xavier, St. Dominic's Church and St. Lawrence's Church.
The Portuguese also left their influence in the form of several forts and barracks, which might not be occupied today, but definitely tell the tale of an era gone by.
Mount Fortress, Barra Fort and Guia Fortress were all built to ensure complete protection of the people of Macau. The city is not just about the old places, as there are numerous attractions to explore. A Macau vacation will enable tourists to see the adorable giant pandas in action at the Macau Giant Panda Pavilion or uncover the mysteries of science at the Macau Science Center. There are also plenty of gardens to see, and these range from ones that are distinctively British in their layout, to ones that speak of Chinese culture. Tourists must visit the Camoes Garden, Park of Dr. Carlos d'Assumpcao, Lou Lim Ieoc Garden and Carmel Garden.
Travellers holidaying in Macau should also be prepared for gastronomic delights. Not only will they get to try out Chinese, but also dishes from around the world, including those from Portugal, Malaysia and India. This is truly an international destination that the global travellers should not miss visiting.
