It's fantastic to see this place. There are loads of shops and food everywhere!!! I love every minute I've spent roaming around this place! It's a must to visit when you go to Macau.

It happened to get there in the afternoon and the square was very crowded. It looks more European than Chinese with old colonial architectural buildings. Plenty of shops, eateries and Koi Kei Bakery, of course. The Ruins of St Paul is nearby. The atmosphere is great. On the way back we found a taxi easy and quick at the front... More

It is a lovely jumping off point to start a historic walk to many of Macau colonial era heritage sites. I visited both in the day and at night. At night when I visited it was raining a bit so there were few people and photos just turned out amazing. Beyond it's beauty there are heaps of small shops and... More

I loved visiting Senado Square and went at different points throughout the day. The morning is fairly quiet and relaxing and nice to stroll around. By midday the place starts to get very crowded and by the afternoon it is packed with tourists and quite busy. I would avoid this time if possible. In the night the crowd lessens and... More

I definitely love this place not only due to its historical background but also due to the fact that it is a shopping haven.

Buildings with historic european outlook. It is Macau's peninsula city centre. Start from this square to reach Ruin's of St Paul by walking. Once you get to Ruin's of St Paul, there is taxi spot on its right hand side just across the small street. The chance to get a taxi from this spot is very high since it is... More

So interesting to see Asia in this light. It is a really enjoyable area to walk around, look down, look up, something interesting everywhere to look at. The crowds can take away from the magic, so try to time it without maximum crowds.

This place is visited by scores of people and the photos seldom paint the picture that you might see there. Images on your camera look similar to those on the Internet, making you wonder in disbelief as to what you're seeing. If you're planning to visit the Ruins of St. Pauls, then you will bee seeing this square on your... More

I'll be honest... we were totally lost in Macau trying to get from the Guia to Senado Square, but we were determined to get there. It took so doing, but we eventually found some people to give us some direction (and finding a cab was impossible, somehow). Once we passed the ruins of Sao Paulo we knew we were close.... More
