we enjoyed walking around and seeing the old buildings. I enjoyed the little alleys off the main street the most. St. Paul's ruins were really cool to see.
If you only had two hours, this is where you're supposed to spend it. Starting from the Macau Museum, then to the St. Paul ruins, then walking down to Senado Square with Sto Domingo, Leal Senado, Misericordia, and fountain. Expect huge crowds as you walk since everyone has the same idea - but nowhere else on the island will you... More
Visiting Macau and not visiting this historic centre of Macau would be like not visiting Macau. Senado Square is a popular venue for tourist. The square is surrounded by pastel-coloured neo-classical buildings, paved with Portuguese gravels in the pattern of waves and lined with green antique streetlights. St. Lawrence Church (dating back to 1569), also known as Hall of the... More
I love this crowded atmosphere and see people laughing, many many shops are here for purchase and typical food and cakes to buy, overall it is an enjoyable visit, old European building could be seen everywhere close by, highly recommend it!
Very busy bustling atmosphere, streets lined with pastelaeias are great for grabbing an egg tart - all part of the journey up to st pauls ruins, with some beautiful Portuguese buildings to admire on the way
Just walked around here for a couple of hours to kill some time. I didn't really have an agenda and I'm not especially interested in not-so-old churches or half-hearted museums, so wandering the small streets was fine. You can follow the signs to the various tourist sites, but the actual street names are usually hard to find. I'd say 2... More
This was a great spot to go. walking through the main street of macau until you get to the large square and then walking a good 15 minutes through the beautiful streets until the ruins appear its a great site and well worth journey. If you go between 11am and 7pm you can be sure to be in the thiickest... More
The best part of the visit is that it is very easy to navigate around the Centre simply by walking. The squares and narrow lanes are pleasant and colourful and filled with variety and interesting sights. No need for a guide as signposts clearly guide the way. It is easy to spend a few hours just exploring but the famous... More
I never thought Macau had such an interesting history! The historical centre is very unique, with a fusion of Chinese and Portuguese cultures. There are many pretty buildings - temples, fortresses, museums, churches, etc..... but make sure you go with a guide to truly appreciate the unique history
Stayed a few blocks away during our visit to Macau, so we had the chance to visit the area a couple of times (for meals and sundry). The place is better in the evening, when it's less crowded and the fountain is nicely lit up with its changing colours. Shops were unimpressive -most were international franchises. Architecture is overrated; plenty... More
