Worth a visit. Unfortunately not many charming cafes like in Portugal, but the architecture is quite lovely.

Very pleasant to wander around the old historical centre, has a very Mediteranean feel, which of course is no surprise. Did it as a day trip from HK, it was a nice change.

So crowded right now. Many Chinese speak mandarin & bring luggage shopping there. Hard to walk along the street during weekend. Nothing special here just take some photos and move on.

Walking through Macao streets it is interesting to see all the names and signs written both in Portuguese and Chinese. There are places such as some churches stairs that reminded me of Rome or Madrid but then you turn away and see all the Chinese...More

If you like to walk around a foreign city and see many cultural aspects of historic cities, this is a stop you do not want to miss. Several tourist spots close by (Ruins of St Paul, temples, museum,etc) but it was fun absorbing the ambience,...More

The centre of Macau and the ladies market district were lovely to walk through and explore. We also visited the Holy Square in this area which was peaceful and historic. There are many shops here but if you look around you can spot the historic...More

Great atmosphere in friendly streets - make sure you go in to the shops to try the samples of cake and meat.

Great way to experience the non gaming portion of Macao. Good shopping and great walking to just stroll around. We bought many knick knacks and had our most Memorable Portuguese lunch near the square.

Most shops ,museums and tourist attractions are open Sunday.
I would like to visit The Historical center of Macau for one evening but my husband uses a wheelchair. Is this a practical option? Would appreciate your advice.

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
We want to travel by ferry from HKG in the morning, then have some lunch, then say a three hour sightseeing trip to incorporate the old centre of Macau. We are booked for the Dancing Waters show at 5 pm so need to be back at that venue in time. Not interested in the new part of Macau. Thank you.

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
