Old town Macau

Take a trip back in time to the olden days of the Portugese. Spend the day walking the streets of Macau. Be sure to buy a Portugese tart or two.

Especially in the evening it is worth to visit the historic centre of Macau. The pretty buildings from Portuguese time, nice places and many chances to enjoy food in the narrow streets around the Plaza.

Having been to both Europe & asia many times, Macau city is a perfect blend of the two. Lots of old beautiful buildings & churches in a very european style, mixed with Asian excitement of good, cheap food & other shopping.

The historic Seneca Square area is often very full of tourists. However, they are mostly happy and rightfully so. The colonial buildings hold everything from fast food joints and modern shops to art stores and some less tourist oriented restaurants on the side streets. Worth a visit with a relaxed attitude.

The area is always crowded. I went 10-15 days before the chinese new year,and it was crowded. Do take a walk to the macaue museum/fort to the top for some fresh air and view from the top

It was a strange experience to be thrown into a Colonial part of town while knowing that I was in China. That said, the Historic Center is very small and extremely crowded. It's touristy, not quaint. The famous local Macau snacks (meat and almost cookies) are worth trying.

The mix and contrast between East and West cultures, old and new brand shops is really nice… The streets are really clean, well maintained but a bit crowded in a nice way… Lots of restaurants and eatery shops offering free sample food… Free WIFI is available but the connection is lost several times… Many restaurants are available offering Asian and...

You will get full from the free Beef jerky and other samples before you reach the ruins. The downtown Macau is a laidback place.
