The place can get crowded but the European architecture and the Chinese culture make for a very interesting venue and, if you're into history, this is a fascinating place to visit

We spent Christmas Day 2013 here & still fondly remember it. Cobbled stone streets, St. Paul’s Ruins, well preserved historic buildings, the Fortress, many places to eat & drink...what’s not to like, even the ugly Hotel Lisboa looks nice in the sunset.

Walking through the historic centre of Macau was quite refreshing, the architecture is very old school and blend really good with some modern designs. The streets were very clean and the people are very nice. Felt very comfortable and safe walking around the city.

It is a nice place but enough to visit one evening and one daytime. In my oppinion 1 day is enough to visit Macao, more is just for who plays in casino because the visiting options are small.

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
