Macau I: Casinos

One relates Macau with casinos.

And one relates casinos with Macau and Las Vegas.

Although, take note, Singapore is expected to pass Las Vegas in terms of gaming revenue. (Not sure if that's a good or bad thing.) It was very eye opening to see everything the casinos had to offer.

There were buses from one casino to another, from each casino to Zhu Hai (lots of shopping). Even if your hotel does not have a shuttle bus that goes to Zhu Hai, you can take a shuttle bus to one of the major casinos then go off from there. Here's a tip: You can even take taxi everywhere. The taxi prices are insanely cheap.

Every casino had its own special characteristics. It would be good to do your research before you go. For example, Sands has hourly performances, Wynn has its beautiful water display with fire, etc.

Even if you don't gamble, it would be nice to just walk in and look at how they run the place. The glamour of the interior walls, the sound of the jackpots rolling, both forlorn and excited faces.

But seriously, Macau isn't all about its casinos. Think about the St Paul Street, 黑沙滩,the Portuguese egg tarts, the almond biscuits- all these to come in a second part!
