but............modern consumerism has taken over. I was hoping for a bit of an old world feel but no, it was all about shopping! So many people here also! The black and white tiles look great, the remains of St Paul's is worth a look as is walking all the way up to the top of the fortress for a view of smoggy Macau! Their is a small museum there also and it is worth a wonder through, doesn't take long. So is it worth going all the way to Macau for this......no, so you better like casinos!

Exotic, a kind of combination of Eastern and Western culture. But too many visitors at weekend, difficult to take photos because if you do so you have to tell your friends: hey, this is me!

Despite the number of tourists there, very serene and spiritual. It was amazing to look at the canons and towers which were positioned just to keep those pesky invaders away!!

The historic centre of Macau is worth visiting to appreciate the past of the place. It has to be maintained to remember the origin of the locality. The tourists will surely remember the place as it is at present and how it was especially when it was under the Portuguese rule.
