Senado Square

Senado Square is situated in the central downtown area on the northern side of Av. Almeida Ribeiro (New Road) and is the centrepiece of old Macau. Here an abundance of shops, high-end boutiques and food stalls line the streets. Renowned for its cheap clothing, this area is where the main bustle of Macau happens. North from here is the Rua S. Domingo where clothes, shoes and cosmetic shops are plentiful. Reminiscent of the Causeway Bay in Hong Kong, here brand-label clothes shops sell the latest fashion creations.

Further east to Rua S. Domingo’s is Rua Pedro Nolasco da Silva and here there is more opportunity to pick up the latest catwalk imitations, bags and sportswear. The largest shopping centre in the area has three floors with a great selection of men's and women's clothes, jewelry and fashion accessories. Take a left turn just before reaching the Rua Pedro Nolasco da Silva and you will find a short street called Rua da Palha. This street has a number of shops selling glassware as well as an artwork shop selling all manner of delicate porcelain water lily ornaments – the municipal flower of Macau.
