    Pasteleria Koi Kei: Going Nuts over Seaweed Wrapped Wafers

    by xuessium Written Apr 29, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop has several branches in Macau (as well as in Hong Kong and Guangzhou). There's one branch very near to the Ruins of St.Paul along Rua de S.Paulo. You can't miss it. The crowd is there.

    What to buy: One of their specialties is the seaweed wrapped wafer. Crispy sweet on the inside with a great seaweed twist of a taste.

    What to pay: About 22-25 patacas per box.

    This shop was established since 1989. It's listed on my guidebook so I thought I would try it. The eggtart is really yummy! I bought home some for my mum, she is very hard to be pleased when it comes to bakery stuff but she really loves it.

    What to buy: Eggtart

    What to pay: 4 pieces = 22MOP

    Largo Senado & Rua de Sao Paulo

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Sep 29, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE place to shop in Macau is the area between the Leal Senado and Sao Paulo. These streets, including Rua de Sao Paulo and the Largo Senado, are packed with fancy stores, small restaurants, bakeries, gift shops, and a variety of other stores. It's a great place to stroll, shop, eat, and people-watch!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop offers a very good environment for shopping, especially their shop located in Taipa. Freshly made cakes could be found. The aroma of the baked cakes is simply irrestable. I've tried almost all almond cakes in town and I believe Choi Heong Yuen is the BEST! Good Service too!

    What to buy: Best Souvenir in Macau: Charcoal Baked Almond Cakes, Egg Rolls with Seaweed and Shredded Pork Jerky, Freshly Grilled Pork Jerky, Low Sugar Peanut Candies

    Pedestrian shopping streets: Western shops

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 10, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main concentration of shopping streets are located in the centre of the city, between the Ruins of St Paul and the Senate Building. The best thing is, is that as the streets are narrow and twisty, the majority of them are pedestrian only which makes things far more relaxing as you can concentrate on what the shops are selling rather than any traffic.

    It is a must to huggle over prices everywhere. I wanted to buy a chinesse style sweater and I said that I will buy it but for a half price of what had been said and shop assistant agreed without problems.

    Fakes

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A man, a bag and a confident swagger in front of any of the main historic sites in Macao...

    What to buy: Nothing and everything. Every name you could think of re watches, very cheap and of course totally fake. This guy was doing a roaring trade with this bus load of Japanese tourists - until another guy turned up. Great theatre!

    Shopping Tips

    by keeweechic Written Jul 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hong Kong dollars are widely accepted in Macau so no need to change any money.

    Some stores may require a minimum purchase to accept a credit card and some may also apply 2-3% service charge on credit purchase even though this is not legal

    Macau is duty free, so don't be caught my offers of 'duty free' buying.

    Always ask for a receipt with the name of the store or company printed on it and always check the price on the receipt before you leave the store.

    Stores which tour groups take you to are usually higher in price than other stores.

    Great souvenir from Macao

    by sunnywong Written Dec 3, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Preserved salty fish is some kind of traditional Chinese food and Macao is renowned of this products.

    Preparation: cut in small trunks and clean up, then put them in a small saucer and top with a few thin slices of ginger and a few drops of vegetable oil. Steam cook or pan fry also good for making this dish. Yummy .......

    Mango: My damnation

    by solopes Updated Jan 25, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have a terrible spell - wherever I go, I can't escape the "universal trilogy" - Zara, Mango, Cortefiel.

    China gave me some rest, but Macau took me back to reality - there they are!

    As everywhere else...

    Next time I will go to the North Pole.
