The main avenue in the heart of Macau, Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, or San Ma Lo (as it’s commonly known in Chinese), extends from the South Bay to the Inner Harbour. The road is host to a mix of old Chinese and European buildings, with most dating back to the 1920s. Notable historic landmarks along the road include Largo de Senado (Senado Square) and Leal Senado Building. Towards the end of the street you can find local dried-seafood stores, while the laneways and alleyways nearby are rife with hidden local cheap eats and street stalls. Wong Chi Kei restaurant, known for its famous congee and noodles is located nearby. For those interested in designer goods, ISA and their designer brands are across the square, while people interested in comestics would like the 2-storey SaSa branch. For Chinese antique hunters, be sure not to miss the nearby local flea market around the alleys near Rua das Estalagens.
