“Great photo op”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

The journey was as interesting as the destination. Visited many of the shops while walking up the old streets leading to the Ruins. A lot of the stores gave free samples of the treats they sell. Tried them all. Very good.

The Ruins are just as they were in the pictures that I've seen before, only very crowded. Was able to take a few photo with friends and family..... and then we went back to stores below.

“crowded and noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

It's a tourist must-stop. The old buildings on the Senado Square are lovely to behold, as well as the Ruins of St. Paul after the winding road filled with shops and little bakeries on either side of the road. It was very crowded and noisy and thirty minutes is all you need to take everything in and there's no necessity or reason to come back.

“Must see attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

This is the landmark of Macau besides its casinos. Situated nearby to Senado Square, Museum of Macao and Fortress Hill. This place is quite busy with tourists and local.Dont forget to buy some egg tart and enjoy the view of Macau.
