We visited the historic centre of Macau as part of our overall walking tour of the old city. It is certainly steeped in history and is certainly worth the visit. Many interesting old shops and stalls. Recommended.

As this is very popular and one of the must see tourist attractions it is very crowded. Most interesting building is on top of the hill. Otherwise small streets are full of small shops mainly for tourists. But anyhow i recommend to visit the area.

Except for the weather, nothing to complain about. Some great architecture, with lot of shops around and plenty of options to eat. One of the highlights of our stay in Macau

A nice tour. The historical center of Macau is small. The tour can be done in one day. A good option to return to the past of Portuguese architecture. Mandatory passage on this tour is the ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral. Another option is to...More

We were a bit rushed and that's the only regret. It is so beautiful that one could spend more than a couple of hours here. Huge crowds are the only drawback.

Way too crowded with some streets being shoulder to shoulder...but you can’t say you’ve been to Macau without visiting the historic center

Due to revenues from casinos Macau managed to transform itself from quite a nasty/dirty place into a seriously picturesque place. The renovations have transformed the place and it's certainly worthwhile strolling around and discovering what the town has to offer in food, architecture, etc. Be...More

Apart fron the Casino cricuit, there is nothing much to see here. Senado square, and ruins of the cathedral hold some interest. walking is the best option. taxis are quite hard to get by in the rush hours.

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
