“Portugal in Asia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The middle of Macau is a wonderful historical treasure and oddity, hopefully the casino's won't encroach any further on what is a unique city

“Great and busy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The square is great with all the cobblestones and European type buildings

Lots of local snacks... Just watch that you do not get food poisoning as a lot of fingers in free snacks...

We wondered the streets and admired the style and architecture..

“Dive into the portguese ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Macau is not just casinos! Have a walk throughout the historical downtown and discover amazing, colourful buildings. The old fortress on the hilltop where you'll have an complete overview of Macau, the Ruins of St Paul's Cathedral and go down the street to Leal Senado.
