I'm hoping to visit Macau in 2013 - here are some of the things I want to see and eat when I'm there.

St. Lawrence's Parish, Macau
People flock to Macau to gamble. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's a shame when time at the roulette wheel takes away from exploring what is otherwise a brilliant little colonial-era treasure. Macau's old cobbled streets are brimming with...

St. Lawrence's Parish, Macau
You could lose your shirt at one of Macau's ostensibly ostentatious casinos, or you could lose your way along Rua de Tercena, an old Macanese street where colonialism continues to crawl under cobblestones. Here, proprietors are more interested in...

Macau, 新馬路美麗街20號A
Since moving to Macau 4 months ago, I've been combing the back streets and checking out every little eatery in the area. Veng Kei has the whole family - all 4 generations of them making noodles in the tiny shop and they make the best noodles in...

Macau, Avenida da Praia 龍環葡韻住宅式博物館
Many Chinese and other tourists visit Macao to visit the casinos, but there is so much beautiful Portuguese colonial architecture. You will see some of it in the main square, Largo Do Senado, but you must go further afield for hidden treasures....

St. Lawrence's Parish, Macau
On the quiet side of Leal Senado (Senado Square), Wander off to the left, (St Paul's Ruins is to the right uphill) and you'll find this hole in the wall local noodle house, right next to a Mahjong stall where the local old folks get together for a...

One of Macau's most famous landmarks. The front façade and the grand stone stairs are the only remains of the greatest church in Macau or even in East Asia.

Rua de São Lourenço, Macau
While wandering through the historic Portuguese part of town, I stumbled upon a little park that was seemingly the designated street art area of Macau. Bright colors dominated the walls--contrasting incredibly with the dull and rainy sky. As in a...

Macau, Rua de Abreu Nunes 19 R/C
The younger generation of Macanese entrepreneurs have been creating a new café coffee culture in the country. Run by a lovely local Keith - the only European certified barrister in Macau, he shares his passion for coffee, changing the menu...

Taipa, Macau
Early/mid morning walks on this route, pass the Hyatt Regency gives you views of the Macau harbour at the top and should take you no more than 45-60mins at leisure pace. At the end of the trail you could stop in Honolulu café for a local breakfast...

Almost every local I know shop for their seafood and fresh produce here. The three story building was built in 1936 and its name derived from the red bricks. While nothing fancy, there aren't many markets of this scale and layout in Macau, unlike...

Estrada do Istmo e da Universidade de Ciencia e Tecnologia de Macau, 2 Andar (L2) e 3 Andar (L2M), Sala F210 do Hotel Crown Towers, COTAI (City of Dreams), Macau
We lucked out and got a Private Dining Room that overlooked the kitchen. We watched the chefs prepare dimsum, make noodles while our servers enticed us with all sorts of tea to pair with our meal.

This odd building sits at the edge of Macau island at the upper floors offer stunning views of the city - best at dusk, where you see the sun setting over the golden Guanyin Goddess of Mercy statue. The interiors are stunning, and one of...

Taipa, Macau
They do the traditional milk tea here very well - a piece de resistance of any cha chaan teng, whether in Hong Kong or Macau. Breads here are freshly baked daily and the sweet smells that emanate from this little shop should lure you in for a...

Macau, 澳門花王堂前地
Macau is beautiful for walks after dark. With abit of imagination you could almost feel like you're in Portugal- cobbled stones, colonial architecture and lots of cathedrals and churches near Senado Square. Especially if the heat is unbearable, do...

R. da Felicidade, Macau
On the opposite side of Senado square, walk up the little street, the first right street is rua da felicidade, Macau's former red light district - also how the street got its name "Happiness Street" from its former seedy, heady colonial past....

The A-Ma Temple is a famous Macau landmark, and though it can be crowded at times, it's worth a visit - the temple grounds are beautiful, and the atmosphere is rich. I loved photographing these cards - the red set against candlelight was striking...
