Every tourist city has streets selling locals food, trinkets and tit-bits to take home as souvenirs and stalls to browse through. For the tourist who comes to Macau, Dasanba Street is that place. It is the road that leads to the ruins of St. Paul, but it is more famous not simply because of where it leads to, but because of what one finds during that journey to get to the historic site. It is the real life depiction of that saying about what matters is not the journey but the destination. Here, one would be able to spend almost a whole day browsing through the little stalls, trying out various local foods ranging from pork jerky to almond cookies and sampling enough of it at diverse stalls to not have any more room in one’s tummy for lunch.
Clichéd as it may be, it is a place that one should visit because though it is the same kind of tourist street that one would find almost anywhere in the world, it is also different in its own way and is typical to Macau. For the foodie, the explorer, or the history buff, this is definitely a must visit site.
There is a festive atmosphere to this setting irrespective of when one visits the place and it is always crowded, but still there is room to accommodate all the tourists who come here on a daily basis. There are also shops selling antiques and even designer goods at varying prices and it is definitely one of those places that one would remember from their travels to this part of the world. For those who are keen on exploring more in the region, there is a small temple by the name of Dasanba Natuo Miao on a side alley and one would be able to find some parts of old Macau city here.
Tourists who come to this city and stay at the numerous Macau Hotels has to offer its visitors should make sure to stop by this place both to see the historic site as well as to enjoy a bit of sightseeing activities. Travelers who stay at a stylish Macau hotel in the vicinity must visit this place as there are unmatched food experiences to be had here and there is always something to pick up to take home too.
