This is one of the main places for tourist to come and visit in Macau. It's defiantly full of people and crowds but it's still lovely to walk around and visit the shops or grab a bite to eat. Charming area of the city and quite beautiful.

One of the places at Macau that you must visit. Arrived at this area at night time and it was a mid autumn festival. The street was full with lights. A lots of people from different country enjoy the street and the beautiful buildings that full with the history.

When I was last there in 2003, it was still a relatively charming little city centre. This time , in Aug, it was hot, packed with tourists ... and you would literally be moving with a crowd down to the famous Ruins of st paul. Try to visit early in the day when its hopefully a little less crowded... and... More

Well worth the wander though the streets to look at the old colonial buildings, although wear very comfortable shoes - the Portuguese penchant for cobble paving with small black and white stones is very hard on the feet - it brought back painful memories of Rio.

Busy but interesting place, good to look around and see Macau's history and heritage, lots of food options for snacking, or perhaps just stopping to get coffee while deciding which casino to check out next.

This is where I usually go to eat and people watch. It is very busy on the weekends and great people watching. Have to see the church facade, and the fort. The museum is worth going to I think most people don't because it is never busy. Get an ice cream, or a coffee and sit by the fountain and... More
