Set out on a world heritage tour of Macau with art history professor Johnathan Farris, Ph.D. A former Portuguese colony, Macau is rich with churches, fortresses and culinary traditions that combine with its Chinese temples and shrines to make the territory a unique experience.

The group travels to Macau by ferry and eats lunch at a popular Portuguese restaurant. Tour destinations include UNESCO World Heritage sites, including A-Ma Temple, one of the oldest Taoist temples in the territory; elegant Renaissance and Baroque churches; historic ruins; Guia Hill’s 17th-century fortress; and the oldest Western-style lighthouse on the Chinese coast.

Students should meet Farris at Macau Ferry Terminal at Shun Tak Centre, at 7:15 a.m.

This excursion is free and open to all SCAD students; space is limited and registration is required. RSVP in Room 114.
