There are many attractions in Macau. For example, the historic district of Macau is the oldest, largest, most well-preserved and most concentrated coexisting building complex of Eastern and Western styles in China. On Taipa Island, you can see famous religious buildings such as Guanyin Temple, Our Lady of Jiamo Temple, Beidi Temple, and Bodi Garden; Coloane Island has beautiful black sand beaches, Zhuwan Beach, Mazu Cultural Village, and Saint Attractions such as the Franciscan Basilica; and Cotai Island is the most famous Venezia resort; there are also various museums including: Grand Racing Museum, Wine Museum, Maritime Museum, Lin Zexu Memorial Museum, Macau Art Museum and Macau Museum It’s dazzling. If you don’t know where to go, let’s start with the eight scenic spots in Macau.
Eight scenic spots in Macau: the lighthouse Songtao, Jinghai Changhong, Mage Ziyan, Puji Xunyou, Sanba Sacred Ruins, Lu Yuan Tansheng, Dragon Ring Portuguese Charm, and black sand.
Dongwangyang Fort is located on the top of Dongwangyang Mountain (Matsuyama), which is the highest point of Macau Peninsula. Green pines were widely planted on the mountains in the Qing Dynasty. After a few years, the mountains were covered with pine forests. The Wangwang Mountain has since been called Wansong Ridge, or Songshan for short. During recent renovations, rare frescoes in South China were found inside the church. These murals combine the characteristics of Chinese and Western cultures and have high artistic value.
The Dongwangyang Lighthouse standing on the side of the church is the oldest lighthouse in China’s coastal areas and was built in 1865. The lighthouse is 13 meters high, with white walls and red roofs. On a clear night, the light from the lighthouse can be seen within 20 miles of Macau. Nearby, signs of typhoon signals can also be seen. Whenever a typhoon is blown, the meteorological bureau will hang corresponding typhoon signal marks on the fort to remind the public to be prepared.
Jinghai Changhong includes two parts: “Mirror sea” and “Changhong”. “Mirror sea” is one of the ancient names of Macao, and it refers to the sea surface between Macau Island and Taipa Island. The two Macao-Australia bridges, which were completed in 1974 and 1994, cross the Macao Peninsula and Taipa Island. The bridge spans a lot, and it looks like Changhong lying waves in the distance. At night, the bridge lights illuminate. Like a series of pearls, it decorates the sea very brightly.
Looking out from the railing, I saw two almost parallel and a cross-sea bridges on the south from the roundabout at the west end (opposite the Bank of China Tower and the main entrance of the Lisboa Casino) to the south to Tsai Island, very majestic.
The west bridge, called the Australian Bridge, is 2.5 kilometers long and was opened to traffic in 1974. It was one of the longest sea-crossing reinforced concrete bridges in the world at that time; the east bridge was called the Friendship Bridge, which was wider and longer than the former. It is 4.7 meters long and uses a sling bridge.
The two bridges are shaped like a dromedary and a bactrian camel. A 35-meter-high fairway protrudes from the middle of the Macau Bridge for Hong Kong and Macao passenger ships to pass under the bridge, while the Friendship Bridge has two protruding fairways, which also lie on the water surface like a violin halfway, playing beautifully under the caress of seawater Movement. As the “Mirror Sea” is one of the ancient names of Macau, it also refers to the sea surface between Macau and Tsai Island, and the two bridges cross the sea with fake Changhong. The two combine to form “Mirror Sea Changhong”, one of the eight scenic spots in Macau.
The Maku Temple is one of the most famous places of interest in Macau. It has a history of more than 500 years and is the oldest of the three major Buddhist temples in Macau.
The Ma Ge Temple was originally called Ma Zu Ge. It is commonly known as the Tian Hau Temple in southeast Macau. It was built in 1488 during the Ming Dynasty. Back to the mountain and sea, along the cliff building, ancient trees towering, beautiful scenery. The entire temple includes four main buildings, including the main hall, Hongren Hall, and Guanyin Pavilion. The Shishi Town Gate and the eaves volley are ancient buildings with Chinese cultural characteristics.
Visitors pass through the temple gate and granite archway, enter the courtyard, follow the stone steps on the foot of the mountain, pick up the steps, and you can reach the Hongren Hall built in the huge rocks of Xiuyan and carved into the grotto. The four walls of the hall are engraved with sea monsters, colorful, and dedicated to the empress. It is the oldest in each building of the Ma Ge Temple.
The Ma Ge Temple in Macao has mountains and sea on its back, and the scenery is quiet. It has always been full of incense and purple smoke, which is a must-visit for tourists. Every time “the day after the queen” birthday and the lunar New Year’s Eve, the incense is even worse, and the smoke lingering all year round, such as the transpiration of the peaceful atmosphere, gathers between the mountains and forests, reminiscent of heaven and earth.
Puji Temple has a history of nearly 400 years. It is the largest Buddhist temple in Macau. “Puji Xunyou” deserves to be one of the eight scenic spots in Macau. Viewed from the outside, the top of the wall and the mast of the Zen courtyard are paved with glazed tiles, and the top of the main door is decorated with auspicious flowers such as strange flowers, weeds, swimming fish, and auspicious dragons. Entering the courtyard, it is a spacious front yard. The main building is divided into three halls, and it is imposing. The main hall is enshrined with three golden Buddha statues and eight feet in length. The second hall is a long-lived Buddha image, taking the meaning of the Buddhist Purdue beings. In the third hall, the Guanyin Bodhisattva sat on the lotus platform with wood carvings, with eighteen arhats lined up on both sides. The whole body was affixed with gold.
The sacred ruins of Semba is also called the “Big Semba Torii”. The ruins of the front wall of St. Paul’s Church, located on the oblique alley of Da Samba, are the core cultural relics of the historical district of Macau listed in the World Cultural Heritage. After the Great Samba Church was burned down by fire in 1835, only the stone front wall remained. The wall resembles an archway in the Mainland. Because it has survived wind and rain, it has been regarded as a “miracle” and has become a symbol of Macau. Ascended to the 68th level and came to the Grand Semba Memorial Arch. It was once known as the “Three Sisters of Xiaoba”, one of the “Ten Scenic Views of the Mirror”, and the “Samba Sage of the Eight Scenic Spots of Macao” trace”.
“Lu Yuan explores victory” refers to Lu Lianruo Park between the fortress and Songshan. It was originally a private garden built by Macau’s big gambler Lu Lianruo in 1904 and was completed in 1925. It was rebuilt into a park after being acquired by the Macau government in 1973. It was established as a park in 1974. It is said to be a well-known park in Hong Kong and Macao that integrates Suzhou gardens and southern gardens. The pavilions and pavilions are patchwork, the scenery of the winding path promenade is charming, the rockery is full of strange rocks, and the lotus flowers are full of pine springs. Lu Garden is the only Jiangnan garden-style park in Macau. The pavilions, ponds, bridges, artificial waterfalls and winding paths in the park are distributed in a pattern of Suzhou Lion Forest.
Cotai Strip, the cosmopolitan city of Macau, is a must-visit for tourists visiting Australia. However, across a road, across a wetland, in the green trees covering the sun, five small green houses are quietly located-Longhuan Yunyun.
The Macao Dragon Ring Portuguese House Museum is located on the seaside road in Taipa, commonly known as the Macao House Museum. It consists of 5 emerald green small villas. This Portuguese-style building complex, built in the early 20th century, is one of eight sights in Macau.
The open-air plaza in front of the Longhuan Portuguese Rhyme Residence Museum is a venue for various events such as the SAR government and associations. The Macao Dragon Ring Portuguese House Museum is now managed by the Civil Affairs Department of the SAR Government.
8. Black Beach
The black sand beach is about 1 km wide, and the sand is fine and uniform, and it is black, so it is named the black sand beach. The bay here is half-moon-shaped, with a gentle slope and wide beaches. It can accommodate 10,000 people to swim and swim. It is the largest natural beach in Macao.
