It is mainly pedestrianised but not completely do it is very easy to get a taxi if you want to move between areas. Apart from the sights there are tourist shops, Portuguese custard tart shops, clothes shops and food... More

Lots to see and do in the Historic Centre. Allocate 90 min to 2 hours and wear good walking shoes as uneven pathway. Look for small green / brown signs on some of the street corners which point to the sights. Food , culture and history all blended into a buzzy place.

Some lovely historic buildings and the beautifully intricate white and black cobble stone designs to view. Can get pretty busy and crowded at certain times of the day though.

This is just walkable distance from St. Paul Church. The whole street is fully crowded and packed. There are lots of shop for eatables, street shows etc. Street looks amazing with people around. It is good to spend some time and watch people.

So jammed with Chinese tourists, couldn't see the pavement or buildings. Suggest visiting at night after 10pm.

Tarts, so don’t try asking a local taxi driver to take you to Lord Stow’s Bakery. (Pictures) The Historic Centre of Macau mainly has Portuguese nonreligious architectures, some churches, some Chinese residential and religious buildings and some streets and squares connecting them. We were able to see the oldest and the best-preserved western-style buildings in China.
