This area is lovely a European influence from the Portuguese. The cobble stone floor which is in patterns in interesting and then you have all the archways all made up of boutique shops. Very open area and good for looking around.

Enjoyed a day trip to Macau with a driver taking us around. We were told to be careful of pick pockets so just be careful of your wallets!!! Very pretty and worth a look

Very pleasant to wander around the old historical centre, has a very Mediteranean feel, which of course is no surprise. Did it as a day trip from HK, it was a nice change.

So crowded right now. Many Chinese speak mandarin & bring luggage shopping there. Hard to walk along the street during weekend. Nothing special here just take some photos and move on.

Walking through Macao streets it is interesting to see all the names and signs written both in Portuguese and Chinese. There are places such as some churches stairs that reminded me of Rome or Madrid but then you turn away and see all the Chinese decorations. Special place for sure.

If you like to walk around a foreign city and see many cultural aspects of historic cities, this is a stop you do not want to miss. Several tourist spots close by (Ruins of St Paul, temples, museum,etc) but it was fun absorbing the ambience, building architecture, as well as many of the food offerings along the way. It helped...

The centre of Macau and the ladies market district were lovely to walk through and explore. We also visited the Holy Square in this area which was peaceful and historic. There are many shops here but if you look around you can spot the historic elements of the town here too.

Great atmosphere in friendly streets - make sure you go in to the shops to try the samples of cake and meat.
