One of the most encouraging development in the Historic City Centre of Macau over the past few years has been the arrival of speciality coffee shops. Five years ago, coffee drinkers were limited to international chains Starbucks and Pacific Coffee or a couple local cafes if you wanted a coffee in between sightseeing. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing... More

Macau is great for taking a break from the mainland or the serious gambler. The walking streets around St. Paul is charming but they need to develop more restuarants and interesting shopping.

To go to Senado Square is like a return to late 18th century. Buildings are very well preserved and the portuguese "calçada" is really a beauty. Rua dos Mercadores and the narrow alleys it's worth a visit. After St. Paul's ruins dont miss the small chinese temple behind. If possible avoid weekends as the ploace will be crowded.

If you head there during the weekends, chances are it would be crowded. Especially Sundays. There are quite a good number of good food eateries and a great way to spend your day here. Just spend a day (or half) along this stretch and soak in the atmosphere.

UNESCO has listed the Historic Centre of Macau as a World Heritage Site. 22 historic buildings have been included in the listing, and the best way to spend a single day in Macau is to do a tour of these monuments. Try to get a brochure which covers them all, but if you can't, the main sights are very well... More

It's a nice place to walk around seeing the historical buildings. If you would like to take a stroll and taking pictures., this is one of the nice place to go. There're also lots of temple in the historical area. You may like to visit them and some even has a little museum nearby telling you the story of the... More

Historic photogenic buildings in Senado Square and in the surroundings streets. Addition of Mediterranean style paving stones has lifted the area. Plenty of attractions that can be visited just be wary of those closed on Sundays/Mondays or public holidays. Enjoy the air con in these places! Make sure you visit at night also as buildings are lit up. We went... More
