Beautiful historical place. Well worth a morning, a afternoon, or even a full day to get lost along these streets and get deep into the history of Macau, and it's historical monuments.

Very pleasant. Not too lively at night, or bars are closing early. Double lively during the day around st Pauls, the macau museo viewpoint. A must stroll & safe!

Macau is a clean and friendly city with less noise and grubbiness than Hong Kong. The historic centre was interesting and enjoyable to wander around and we felt comfortable at all times of the day and evening.

Fascinating to see the mix of Portuguese and Chinese architecture and culture. Buildings with character and the shopping is quite good too. Quite a contrast with the Cotai district!

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
