When I think of Macau, apart from the multi-billion casino empires, I immediately have that mental picture of Largo do Senado. It is the town square that gives this tiny Chinese territory the quintessential European charm.

Nice place to take a few photos, stroll around, eat some egg tarts. The tourism office is just past the fountain on your left (yellow building) to pick up some free maps.

Sanado Square is the heart of Macau. Take a rest of the glitz and glamour of the city and pay a visit to this old Portuguese part of the town which still retains its ol'd world charm. Stroll around in the alleys and culminate the walk at the Ruins of St Paul's.

If blindfolded and dropped in here, you would be confused -- architecture, cobblestones, and street & building signs in Portugeuse, dual with Chinese. Very cool. Very Euro feel, in China! Also popular and crowded.

Senate Square is a place for shoppers. Some shops were on sale when we were there. We did not experience being hungry since it kept us busy choosing branded items on SALE. Not far fom our hotel, it took us a twenty minute walk to reach the place and even gave us an exercise.

It's a uphill where different stalls selling the local souvenirs and foods that people will be buying back home. The great thing is that you can try all the way up on different snacks like bbq pork or beef, almond biscuits, egg rolls and many more.

Easy to find by following the street signs. Lots of restaurants and good inexpensive shopping. It reminds one very much of old town Lisbon.
