Amazing architecture. Great place to check out variety of stores, restaurants, watch entertainment when available. Lots of different road sides and local markets.

The historic center of Macau has beautiful architecture from Portuguese colonial times. It's a very walkable area which includes several historic sites including the Ruins Of St. Paul's Church and Fontaleza do Monte, the oldest fort in Macau with a beautiful view.

This is the go to place for the sights of Macau. You will find many other sights located here. A good starting point for a walking tour of this area.

I didn't like Macau. The taxi drivers were dishonest, the air was chewable, and the food was expensive and mediocre. But e exploring the old streets on foot and finding old houses, little shrines, beautiful churches and temples, old buildings, open markets, that was the...More

Walking down the streets, going to the Ruins of St. Paul you will see traditional Macau shops and restaurants, but you also will see McDonald's, Adidas, and more. Still worth the time.

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

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
