you can find quite a number of local foods here such as the Portuguese Tart, the pork chop bun, curry fishball, Koi Kei local snacks can easily found almost every alternative corner, shops etc. This place is crowded most of the time and if you don't mind ppl pushing & spitting everywhere, then you will look the square.

Such a charming square in the middle of the city. What a contrast between all the Vegas style hotels to Portuguese architect. This is one of the main stops for tourist to visit while in Macau so it's quite busy and full of crowds. When we were there it was just after Chinese New Years and they still had all... More

Senado Square is the epicentre of tourism visits in Macau and very often feels overwhelmed with tourists these days. Lined with World Heritage Attractions, brightly coloured buildings, lovely Portuguese style tile ground and a nice fountain, it is easy to see why most people descend upon this lovely square during their trips to Macau. One of the things we like... More

Shopping was no problem, so much to do and so much to see and you can do at a comfortable pace. It retains all of Portugese signs since the turn over to China.

Actually, the area is quite nice with its ancient buildings and mosaic tiles for the pavement. Very colonial feeling here. Shopping here can give you a bargain, especially cosmetics. However, once the sun rises and people start to show up, it can be very crowded. So, it is difficult to find some vacant seats for a quick rest. If you... More

Beautiful area with the neat tiled floor. As you might expect, very touristy but has a wonderful colonial flavor. Several places to get a bit or drink on hot, humid Macao days. Jumping off point to walk up to St Pauls and the Fort/Macao Museum. About a 15 minute taxi ride from the hydrofoil terminal.

Full of shops in the square and you can barely find a place to sit (not even around the fountain area!) Loads of good restaurants and very easy to access as it's in the city centre!
