Macau is a place commonly known as an Asian counterpart of Las Vegas, with all its luxurious resorts and suites and exhilarating casinos. But of course, we should all know that Macau has more to it, aside from City of Dreams, Studio City and Venetian Macao. According to CNN, tourists should also consider the breathtaking sceneries of Macau's island of Coloane.

A good place to start off during a tour of Coloane is the Alto de Coloane, also known as Macau's largest mountain. According the South China Morning Post, tourists can start off by hiking this 170-meter mountain for your first day. There are many routes and trails to take for this easy mountain and you may also ride one of its shuttles if hiking doesn't suit your style.

Coloane is also known for its architectural structures, which can be seen as mixtures of colonial and local Chinese architectures. One of Coloane's major colonial structures is the Chapel of St. Francis Xavier, which was built in 1928, known for its bright yellow walls and blue doors. The Tin Hau Temple was built in the year 1763, and was said to be built during the Qianlong Emperor's reign. It is one of the well-known structures that remained with its deep Chinese roots. There is also a European-styled library and the A-Ma village located within the Coloane village.

Aside from admiring Coloane's beautiful architectural structures, tourists should also try the food. Lord Stow's Bakery and Café sells delicious creamy-filled egg tarts. The Portuguese restaurant Fernando's, located at the seaside, is best known for their bread and clams cooked in white wine and tomato sauce. And at the north of the Coloane village, there is also Hong Kee, a café hidden by the northern docks which serves their special hand-beaten coffee, sandwiches, noodles and Cantonese cuisine.

The Hac Sa Beach of Macau is also a great place for a summer vacation, complete with its unique black sand. There is also a smaller beach, the Cheoc Van Beach that is located beside hills and a public swimming pool.
