Travel by ship in the morning from Hong Kong to Macao. The first stop will take you to the Ruins of St. Paul, an old Portuguese monastery intricately carved between 1620 and 1627 by local craftsmen and Japanese Christians that were in exile. Under the direction of the Italian Jesuit Carlo Spinola, St. Paul was constructed atop a hill with sixty six stone steps leading up to the top. The carvings include Jesuit images with Oriental themes, such as a woman stepping on a seven-headed hydra, described by Chinese characters as ' Holy Mother tramples the heads of the dragon'.
Atop Penha Hill, see the forts, buildings, and residences that reside there. Get the best view of Macao on the third highest hill that stands 62.7 meters above sea level. See the churches that have stood there for centuries and the upper class residences that have made their home along the hill. Next, we will visit another must-see sight, The Barrier Gate. It maintains great historical significance for the province and is still used as an entry way to Zhuhai, a city in the Guangdong province of China. On the last leg of our trip we will see the Kum Tam Temple, the biggest Buddhist temple in Macao that houses some of the most beautiful statues and Buddhist images. In the back of Kun Iam Temple, there are terraced gardens, and the first Sino-American treaty (Wong Ha Treaty) signed in 1844 on one of the stone tablets. In the late afternoon, get the chance to unwind and try your luck in a game of poker at the world famous Macao casinos before returning home.
