If you want to see some historical buildings and get a lot of shopping in...this is the place! It was clean and moderately busy for a mid week excursion.

Macau maintains in its tight familiar quaintness what HK next door seems to have lost. The entire centre is an outstanding world heritage contribution. Make sure you pick up the fee Cultural/heritage guide to Macau form just about anywhere.

We wanted to enjoy a day of sightseeing in Macau and we sure did. This place was so different from China and since we’ve never been to Europe, this is the closest thing we could imagine to being in Europe. The architecture, shops, bakeries, restaurants...More

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
