Brief Introduction of Macau Fisherman's Wharf
Macau Fisherman’s Wharf is mainly divided into 3 themed sections:
(2)East Meets West
2.)A-ma Cultural Village - Close to the world's tallest statue of the goddess A-Ma (also known as Tian Hou), which stands on a 170-metre high peak on a mountaintop on Macau's Coloane Island, a 7,000-square meter cultural complex celebrates the beloved deity's legend.
Well, a slightly contrived collection of restaurants and shopping opportunities but it's certainly not unpleasant. Well worth a visit, there is plenty here to entertain you for an hour or two, more if you fancy a meal.
If you're traveling with kids, especially pre-teens, Fishermans Wharf is a must visit, and likely will be their favorite stop. The wharf is home to a theme park featuring, among other things, a Roman amphitheater, volcano, walled Chinese city (still under construction), and Alladin's Fort which features an amusement park with rides for younger kids. There's an indoor rollercoaster and an indoor water ride for kids at least 1.2 meters tall. The Roman section also houses an indoor shopping area which includes restuarants offering patio dining.
I guess it compliments after a trip to Sands Casino as it sits right beside it. The place is literally a shopping mall with touristy shops and restaurants. A great place to take photos though. The outdoor bar has a great atmosphere with live band music.
