A great place to wander and see the old town, full of grand old Portuguese historical buildings. Plenty of shops and eateries too, gets very busy and extremely crowded.

Excellent. The cultural heritage is what makes Macau a unique place in the world. A place where the peoples and culture of the East meet and coexist with the West in a harmonious and relaxed way.

I spent maybe an hour walking around the center. I'm sure many spend more time. Seeing the old colonial architecture was an interesting contrast to the ultra modern (and in some cases, over the top) casinos that dominate some parts of Macau.

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

I agree, Easy to do. A taxi is possibly the safest choice but I did a similar time-frame visit catching the local very cheap bus. Inside the arrival port, to the right of the door out, is an information desk - very helpful... More
