Macau, Las Vegas of the East

Smoggy casino top.

We were told that Chinese people love to gamble. Macau has developed an economy for itself by becoming a gambling centre. Some of the casinos are modelled on ones found in Las Vegas, including the Venetian.

Our hotel was more or less across the street from the Venetian, and when Google earth filmed the ‘strip’ in December 2008, our hotel was still under construction.  It too had a casino which you had to enter in order to sit within the lobby.

This view is from the pool area of our hotel which was lovely and cool that evening.
