Ex­plor­ing Ma­cao on Foot

Let's Travel - - DESTINATION MACAO -

For many, there is no bet­ter way of ex­plor­ing this city than by foot which is why the Ma­cao Gov­ern­ment Tourism Of­fice has cre­ated a se­ries of self-guided walk­ing tours so that trav­ellers can re­ally ex­pe­ri­ence the off the beaten track ar­eas and true heart of Ma­cao. There are eight routes to choose from and they cover not only the ma­jor his­toric sites but nar­row lanes which lead to a few eye-catch­ing sur­prises. These routes will di­rect vis­i­tors to a num­ber of fas­ci­nat­ing churches, parks, fortresses, mu­se­ums and gal­leries as well as the many cafes, bak­eries and eater­ies sell­ing the lo­cal cui­sine and fa­mous snacks and deserts mark­ing the his­toric cor­ner of the former Por­tuguese en­clave. The “Step Out” Ma­cao,” Self-Guided Walk­ing Tours App, def­i­nitely of­fers in­valu­able as­sis­tance dur­ing your stay and is free to down­load on all mo­bile de­vices. It’s easy to use and you can do it at your own pace. • The Eight sug­gested walk­ing tour routes in­clude:
