Relaxing place. The area is away from the hustle and bustle of city life where one can enjoy some quiet time for praying. Too bad the way to the big statue was under construction when we visited so we can't go there. Complementary buses from the foot of the hill comes every 30 minutes so you won't have to hike.

First, there is a free bus that runs up the mountain to the top near the main gate. Otherwise it is a long climb to the top. This shuttle also returns to the main gate from the top. Easy to access by public transportation. The village is more of a temple that a village. The temple was quite unique with... More

I visit here for worshiping Matsu, gods and making some wishes every year with my best friend. Recently, I burned incenses, worshiped the gods, donated sesame oil money and made some wishes after I had arrived. I like this place very much because Matsu and I are from the same hometown-Putian, Fujian even thought I was born in Macau and... More

The Matsu Cultural Village is fantastic! It offers gorgeous panoramic views of Macua and the ocean. There is a beautiful temple and 4,000 square foot village to explore including a front gate, shops, and multi-level shops. Up a small hike is a large statue of the goddess A-Ma who overlooks the city and ocean. There are hiking trails to be... More

You can reach this place by riding a free shuttle that's located near the Esso petrol station. The temple is modest where you can buy incense to pray and say your well wishes. I recommend going up a little to the top of the hill where there's a status and a nice panoramic view of Macua.

The temple is quite nice but the bus service is awful. The driver does wherever he pleases. Yesterday, May 9 at around 5pm, I waited around 40 min for the driver. He came down, picked up two friends, refused to let us and another couple in and just left up to the temple. This wasn't the first time I caught... More
