You can finish the historic sights by walking within a 3/4 day. Sights are well posted once you're in the area. Start off with senado square and branch out with the help of the poled signage.

We were lucky to go on a Friday afternoon, so the crowds were still manageable. Still very hard to get a good photo of any of the buildings without someone walking thru the picture. We were told later at the hotel that the weekends are the worst times to see the square and surrounding streets as it will be wall... More

Pleasant shops, eaters and small local shops and boutiques. A pleasant journey to St. Paul's Church wall as well as the Fortress atop the Macau Historical Museum.

Walking around reminded me of the visit to Lisbon in 2014, great memories. The only place where English was spoken, met interesting characters.

There is a beautiful Portuguese historic sector to Macau. It is lined with small food shops, typical junk dealers, and mid to high end retail.
