Unique and romantic walk

The place, as in the building surrounding it and the tile they used, lends a romantic, though very crowded, walking opportunity

I loved looking at the history, but honestly there isn't much to see. Taking the time to look around is worth a day but there really is not much to do.

The combination of Europe architecture with Asian culture is amazing!! We don't bought a tour, just with our GPS in the cell phone was enough. Is an amazing adventure if you decide take this walk, a lot of things to see, and the weather it was excellent. Is really pretty the combination of both cultures in one place!!! Enjoy the... More

The old centre can be covered easily in a day and is simple to navigate. Will be crowded in the main areas at weekends but it's easy to get to quieter areas quickly. Most places of interest are free.

Huge day,lots of time spent during immigration out of Hong Kong & into Macau. Humidity,again extreme, our guide Mario fantastic,passionate about his home, the Temple was a bit too commercialised for my liking, the overweight people sitting around could have been sweeping & tidying their place of worship up,instead of flicking through their iPhones, no-one made any attempt to assist...

It is amazing to find such lovely european architecture in an asian city but when you realise that Macau was a portugese colony its understandable. So many photo opportunities, little boutique shops and even the facade of an old cathedral to investigate. It takes a good couple of hours to explore and is very enjoyable, the sea breeze ensures it... More

It is worth spending some time out of the casinos and come visit the historic center of Macau. There is so much culture in here and can really make you feel the portuguese influence in its streets. It is very easy to walk around, grab some food or drinks and also watch the historical sights.

After a $100 trip by taxi from Tapai to Macau we were pleased to find the historical centre and then spent a half day wondering the streets and enjoying the various attractions.Good to get a feel for the real city. We then found the Macau Tavern and enjoyed a cold drink and soaked up some more atmosphere before more walking,... More
