Macau: What to see and do
Macau stands in a humble corner south of Zhuhai, nestled in its seaward inclination as an extension of Zhuhai’s southern frontier while still forming an islet of its own - with Taipa and Coloane adjoining Macau in its administrative region. The lotus city was formerly developed under the purview of Portuguese colonial forces from the mid-16th century until 1999, during which the city was granted autonomous prerogative over its native affairs with the exception of foreign affairs and defense systems - which were relegated under the jurisdiction of China.
Having been subjected to the moulding of Portuguese influence, the city of Macau proffers a unique portion of locales in comparison to the rest of the Red Dragon nation - with colonial cuisine and culture believed to have found middle ground with local flavours during the settlement of traders and European missionaries throughout 1750 to 1840. Owing to this melange of different strokes, one can find vestiges of Portugal’s past endeavours in the Macau coast’s Mediterranean-tinged vibe, apparent in remnants like the Fortaleza do Monte - a military fort erected in efforts to repel show-stealing Dutch forces, which now stands boldly surrounding a public park and heritage museum while yielding sprawling views of Macau City. Perhaps most telling of the remaining marks of old-time Macau’s colonial upbringing would be the ruins of St. Paul - a facade of the Church of Mater Dei, built in the 1600s by Jesuit missionaries in their oriental pursuit of disseminating Christianity - which now stands suspended from the rest of its former foundation, making for a hauntingly serene yet symbolic display of interweaving cultures. Meanwhile, demarcating the centre of past annals of international trade between China and the West is the Senado Square, a thriving core of public revelries and celebrations that lays in a panoramic circumvention of neo-classical structures. Inducted into UNESCO’s Heritage Sites in 2005, the Mediterranean styled square houses a touristic cornucopia of fashion outlets, restaurants, and snacking haunts; while select occasions bring with them a festive tableau of lion dances, fireworks, and parading revelries.
While Macau’s romantic Euro-inclinations hold sway among the region’s established charm, its oriental disposition nevertheless shines through, with famous landmarks signifying folksy idolatry of the China republic’s founder Sun-Yat Sen just as visibly as one can find a sculpted homage to the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama. The legacy of traditional Chinese figures remain similarly intact with the preservation of heritage sites like the Mandarin’s House. The former residential complex of famed literary mover and catalyst of change Zheng Guanyin, the abode contrasts the European aesthetics of the neighbouring Portuguese-styled piazzas, with oriental wooden inlays furnishing vacant concaves throughout the sprawling 43,000-foot domicile. Further established within Macau’s roots is the A-Ma Temple, a hallowed sanctum of worship where the town’s past fishermen and merchants were believed to have converged to replenish while offering praise to A-Ma, or the Goddess of the Sea - from whom the city derives its name, as it held refuge for the fishing folk of yore as A-Ma Gau or the “Bay of A-Ma”. Tucked behind a scarlet gated pavilion, the temple’s dedication to various deities makes for a personification of the culminating cultures ingrained in Chinese tradition, owing its spiritual potpourri to a mix of Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, and a spectrum of folklore.
