Macau has a strong influence from other cultures, Cotai Strip is Asia's Las Vegas (same hotels, same ambiance) and the Center of the City has a strong portuguese influence in it's architecture, It was an interesting City overall. Loved Macau !

You can spend good half day walking if you just stroll around the area. Besides all those historic sites, there are many little unique shops and small alleys. Loved the Portuguese soap store somewhere behind Starbucks near St.Paul Cathedral.

Nice to walk around with the old and low rise buildings. The shopping street leading up to St Pauls full of sweet shops, all selling the same thing though. Good areas to sit down and watch the passing crowds.

The atmosphere, buildings, and structures almost made me forget I was in Asia. It was a great mix between the Portuguese and Asian culture. The lanterns is what gave the "Asian" feeling. It was a nice walk and walking distance to the Ruins of St. Paul.

I stayed here over Easter weekend and love the centre of Macau. It is a nice walk from Senado square around St. Dominics Church through the streets and shops to St. Pauls Ruine

Nice place, although gets very crowded and chaotic depending on what time of the year you visit. I went in Dec. just few days before Christmas. It was extremely crowded. A lot of UNESCO world heritage sites within walking distance. A good day to spend time enjoy the ambience and the culture.

You can get lost in the little streets here and you won't put your camera down. Beautiful Portuguese buildings nestled amongst the Chinese dwellings makes the mind boggle.

Very well maintained historic center! The old buildings seem to have a charm of their own.The tile patterns resemble the ones in Lisbon Portugal. The streets are lined with shops selling local food. They offer you some to sample too.
