I think 3-4 hours is enough for visit in historic center of Macau. Probably more time you will spend to get to Macau as all border procedures are very long.

Walking through the Macau city center is a great experience. Dotted with shops and eateries the walk through the city center gets you closer to the Portugal legacy of Macau. GREAT

If you want to see some historical buildings and get a lot of shopping in...this is the place! It was clean and moderately busy for a mid week excursion.

Macau is the first and last place the Europeans set foot in Asia. This is a testament of how these two very different cultures converge. Avoid the weekends and holidays.

Casino money has turned a run down port into a beautifully restored tourist destination. I'm not sure about the morality of the linkage, but it makes old Macau a lovely, relaxing place to spend a few days. And you don't have to visit a casino...More

Hi, The sites of the Central Macau are cobble stoned so may not be practical. It is flat for some of the way then there is a steep hill to the Church ruins. Plus it is very crowded. I would not recommend the visit

I agree, Easy to do. A taxi is possibly the safest choice but I did a similar time-frame visit catching the local very cheap bus. Inside the arrival port, to the right of the door out, is an information desk - very helpful... More
