Macau is breathtaking. There isn't a lot to do in this particular square but walk around the streets and enjoy the unique combination of european colonial-style and asian-style architectures. So make sure you do that :-) It was very hard for us to navigate in this area, though. Make sure you bring a good map. A cellular plan would've helped... More

We were left by a local taxi, at some walk-able distance from square. That way we enjoyed walking through narrow streets with local food shops on either side of the road.We enjoyed that more than the historic monument.

Senado square is centrally located in the Macau part of Macau, meaning not in cotai or taipa, and has been a favorite hang out of mine. Large philipino community nearby, and the square itself is a tourist shopping area that leads right up to the Ruins of St.Paul and Monte Fort. Unless arriving by taxi, you will most likely be...

I was very much disappointed with all Macau casinos. Their machines are not very nice and they have almost no blackjack tables. However the city center is incredible, a mixture of asia, europe, modern, old, poor and rich. An experience not to miss. If you have to choose between the casinos and this, I would recommend this!

This is a beautiful square in the middle of town. When I was there it was decorated for Chinese New Year. Most of the nicer shops you find in malls are nearby and many small restaurants. Recommend walking the short distance from here to the ruins of St. Paul, its a nice walk through an upscale shopping area, maybe half... More

I was quite excited to visit this place and was immediately disappointed when we arrived there. We almost got lost because I couldn't believe that we were already there and that I am standing at Senado Square already; it doesn't look anything like the pictures in the internet. The fountain was nowhere to be found. The European buildings and structures... More

Despite fears that shops will be closed during Chinese New Year, the opposite can be seen because there are thousands of people here, especially from Mainland China. There are plenty of shops open here and there are beautiful Chinese New Year decorations all around, even piped in Chinese New Year songs (Mandarin and Cantonese) playing all over the square!

I love the historical architecture of the buildings. It is definite a must visit place. There are lots of shops and eateries. After leaving the Ruins of St Paul, there were tons of eateries (plus free samples). If you need souvenirs to take home, this is the place to visit.

A very busy place since tourists frequent this place. Lovely colorful architecture of Portuguese heritage while shops adorn every corner. Nice place for people watching.
