The history and architecture here are are so completely juxtaposed you'll be in awe. The influence of the Portuguese architecture and culture here is fascinating. We loved it and it felt like being in a little slice of Europe.

This is one of the most famous street that you couldn't miss in Macau. You can see the traditional building, luxury shops, local souvenir shops, local foods.... in one street.

It is interesting to see old Portuguese structures still there, tiling and churches as well as the oldest western theatre in China. The roads are very busy though to walk and narrow, so it is not necessarily a pleasant walk and requires some climbing as well.

If you are a non vegetarian and like to explore new things, then this is the place to be. It has many shops specially the patisserie shops with lots of variety. The area has lots to eat, see and photograph. Easy to get around but lots of people as its generally over crowded. The area involves a lot of walking... More

Some parts like the Ruins of St Paul's best viewed late at night. Others not at weekends and during the shopping frenzy hours for mainland PRC tourists. This means before 10 am and after 5 pm. Always seems busy and always seems more pleasant after dark.

An interesting collection of Portuguese architecture in the middle of Asia. Lots of shops nearby selling jerky and other Portuguese tidbits. Beware of pickpockets (not horrible but present).

Macau is just stunning. If you've been to Portugal then you'd definitely recognize the Portuguese architecture and the patterns/motives everywhere you go.

Very interesting place to wander and shop. We were here on a Sunday and it was very crowded. I enjoyed it as you can off the beaten path easily or stay in very comfortable shopping streets.
