There are many highlights of the Macao heritage as the ruins of St Paul etc. The Portuguese buildnings are beautiful. You better go in the morning as its crowded with people and very hot later on

This is an easy walk and anyone can finish it in 30 minutes. I highly suggest you either go here early in the morning if you don't like crowds or you come here at dusk for dramatically lit photos.

If you are into cultural trips then you'd definitely enjoy this. With preserved old building and old cultures too. Very nice stroll but it gets hot during midday.

I'm not a big fan of casino. They never get a dime from me. So every time when I went to Macau my favorite place was always the old town. It reminded me of good old days when I was young walking around in Hong...More

The street and the area around is pretty amazing. You can easily take a walk for a couple of hours and enjoyed the local eateries. Shopping in and around the stores is also good.

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
