Not much to see here, temples here and there, take pictures all you want. don't forget to buy souvenirs outside, theres this small store (near or under a tree at the park), the price is not that bad and the quality is good compared to others
There's a lot of old buildings here in Macao, the oldest of which is known as A-Ma Temple which dates back to the Ming Dynastry (1368-1644).
It's beautiful and still very much in use, filled with throngs of followers and even more monks.
