The place is just too crowded and noisy. That's the kind of atmosphere you'd get from a very popular place to see.
Been here for the 4th time. This is a must not missed attraction when you are in Macau. I loved to stroll from Senado square up to Ruins of St Paul followed by a visit to the Fortress. Love the smell of the various snacks like the bbq meat, tarts, almond cookies etc along the streets. Just love the old... More
Wandering through the winding streets of historic Macau was a glimpse into the colonial past of Macau. Although some of the builds have been persevered, Many have not and are in states of decay covered in air conditioning units with no regard for the historical references to the past, for example installing the external units out of site. Many people... More
The Makau old town is like a part of Europe In the middle of Asia. I think that if you are not European it is more impressive but even if you are, It is definitely something you won't regret:-)
This was my first trip to Macau in about 12 years, and although I was saddened to see how so many of the buildings have slipped in to decay, the old town is still really very sweet. It's not going to wow you like old towns in Europe, but there are lots of things to see and you could easily... More

The whole area is beautiful and requires more than a... More
The historic center includes churches, shopping, the Macau museum, everything. At 8am on Saturday or Sunday, it's quiet. At 9am on a Saturday, it is starting to pick up and Ruins of St. Paul already have bus loads of folks. Hordes of people by noon on Saturday. But, I though it was more fun with lots of people, to see... More
This place has great sense of history, preserved really well, you wonder through the Square and get real feel of what it used to be, great shop and many buildings to look at still well preserved. The only negative is u have to share it with many noisy Mainland tourist looking for a deal.
If you enjoy history, and like old buildings with lots of character, don't miss the old town in Macau. The buildings are beautifully restored and preserved, and it is a great place to spend time wandering and taking photos.
