Here's a list of Top Places for Sightseeing in Macau recommended by our experts:

Macau is one of the most fascinating destinations in Asia. In 2005, the historic centre of Macao was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a place of tremendous historical value as it has long been the city where East meets West. It was the first and last European colony in China and represents over 400 years of Chinese and Western cultural exchange. Macau’s rich and diverse history has left it with a wealth of historic sites and buildings to explore. Its old-world Sino-European architecture and culture exist alongside a modern and lavish lifestyle - the result of being a gambling and tourist hub. High-end shopping options naturally follow suit. Nearly all of the recently opened casinos include shopping areas where the world's leading brands can be bought at duty-free prices. The location and function of the island has definitely facilitated many important cultural exchanges between the east and west in the field of the arts, science and trade. The city’s heritage is extremely well preserved and offers many opportunities to visit the monuments and landmarks that characterize its unique history. Among the most noticeable attractions are the ruins of St. Paul's Church and Largo do Senado (Senate Square) which are known as the heart of old Macau.
