If you are visiting Macau for pleasure don't spend all your time in the gambling and neon palaces that abound in this small territory. Old Macao has been beautifully preserved and is well worth a stroll.

Macau bears a lot of history with Portugese occupation and walking this historic city is a good way to experience it

Hi, The sites of the Central Macau are cobble stoned so may not be practical. It is flat for some of the way then there is a steep hill to the Church ruins. Plus it is very crowded. I would not recommend the visit
