Editor's note: The Historic Centre of Macao was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2005. It is a collection of over 20 location where both Western and Chinese architectural heritage stand together on public squares and in its meandering streets.

These sites bear witness to the 400 years of co-existence between Chinese and Portuguese cultures, and have become a main driver to the current development of tourism in Macao.

According to the reviews on Dianping.com, the Chinese equivalent of Yelp, here are the top picks of World Heritage Sites in Macao:

Built in 1488 during the Ming Dynasty, A-Ma Temple (or Mazu Temple) is one of the oldest Chinese worship sites in Macao commemorating Mazu, the "Goddess of the Sea." The deity has been widely worshipped by merchants and fishermen in southeast China. Grand ceremonies are held here every year on March 23 (under the Lunar calendar), Mazu's birthday.
