This is the place where you can encounter unique culture of Macau. Old buildings and lots of street food. Since Macau is very small, don't miss it.

Nice place to go and you can find some good restaurants as well. The street is not too busy and you can stroll along leisurely.

I think 3-4 hours is enough for visit in historic center of Macau. Probably more time you will spend to get to Macau as all border procedures are very long.

Walking through the Macau city center is a great experience. Dotted with shops and eateries the walk through the city center gets you closer to the Portugal legacy of Macau. GREAT

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
