This is a very interesting site. Best to see earlier in the day before the crowds grow and so that you can take a good photo.

A lot of people hanging around and also looking for photo, I recommend you to go to small streets to feel both the Chinese and western styles of Macau and enjoy Macau cuisines. Enjoy!

It is very crowded and difficult to get to this attraction. After passing the crowd, you could see a wall and nothing.
