Combine with a visit to Ruins of St. Paul. Visited some stores and a restaurant here, then it was time to drive back to Cotai.

The Historic Centre of Macau is a fine zone for wandering around the old street and buildings form back in the day. There's plenty to looks, eat, drink, buy or just fnd a cafe, plunk yourself down and people watch.

What a unique experience-a piece of Portugal in Asia! The Historic Centre does draw a large crowd of tourists, but it is worth it to see the architecture, ruins, cathedrals, etc.

Thank RAlayne
