Almost identical to Lisbon in parts (Obviously because it was a former Portugese colony). Perfect for a day from Hong Kong. Some interesting buildings and places to eat, but that's really about it! We spent the morning at the casinos on Cotai strip and the...More

Macau disappointed me somehow, I was reading a little bit about the history of Macau and expected much more than I saw. Make sure you take a walk in the small streets around. I enjoyed to explore the city on this way much more. The...More

We have very little good to say about Macau as a destination. Some of the food was very good. This is one of the gems in the area. Having been to Lisbon makes this a special place.. It is a real step back in time,...More

After the Panda Pavilion, the second best thing to do in Macau is go to the Historic Center. Everyone goes here and the place was packed when we got there. Coming down the steps from the Ruins of St. Paul’s Church and into the busy...More

This picturesque area is bustling with shoppers and tourists on the weekend. However, it is well worth a visit to see the historic buildings and attractive architecture. Many of these buildings now house up market shops.

This is the obligatory visit you have to make when in the old part of Macau. Lots of things to see and eat.

We visited the Historic Center of Macau on our recent visit. The renovated parts of the city are quite nice, and should definitely be visited, but a couple of streets past the center and you'll find the old run-down parts of Macau. 3 hours is...More

Really enjoyed a couple hours downtime wandering the old streets here. Scenic mix of colonial with evolving, some quiet areas amidst the bustle of this city. There was one street full of food vendor stalls of every description, loved it but still manageable to see...More

It was a very nice discovery and we were quite surprised. It is a mix of portuguese-chinese culture and environment. It is like a south-east Asian city with an European touch. Full of places to see

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
