If you’re only expecting casinos and clubs in Macau, you’re definitely on the wrong track. Although one cannot deny the influence of commercialism, the city still shows it past. There are several fortresses that show the devastating impact of foreign forces. You can visit temples and churches and discover who were the most important citizens of Macau. See the ‘Portas de Cerco’ that shows the way to China and take a rest afterwards in one of the many parks and trace the Portuguese influence in Macau.
