1 hour by ferry from the China ferry terminal( remember to bring your passport ). When we got off the ferry there were plenty of people offering expensive tours. If you just want to see the old Portugese area of Macau, get a map at the tourisim booth and they will tell you to take the #3 bus which drops you off at the main square of the old town. From there we simply followed the street signs which will guide you to the various tourist attractions, particularly the old Ruins of St. Paul and the nearby fort. Make sure have a taste of the Portuguese egg tarts as you walk around (yum).
For lunch we happened onto a delightful little cafe (puffin cafe) serving some good fresh food (on Rua de Santo Antonio). The waitress there suggested a few other old streets for us to see and also how to visit the casinos on Taipa.So we headed back to ferry terminal and boarded a free bus to the Venetian casino (all of the casinos will pick you up and drop you back at the ferry terminal for free). Wow what mind boggling sight. Hugh casino, replica of St Marks Square was brilliant. Plenty of boutique shopping. A replica of the grand canal Venice is on the third floor, where you can take a ride on a Gondola, steered by a Chinese-Venetian. There is a 3d light show at dusk at " St Marks Square" Other casinos nearby also impressive.
All in all well worth the trip to both old Macau and the casinos on Taipa
