Is Macau the new Las Vegas?

Venetian and Wynn, Las Vegas

Last 2002, the Chinese government broke the gambling monopoly of the casino tycoon Stanley Ho and allow entry of the big hotel magnate from Las Vegas immediately invested big bucks in establishing their hotel chains in Macau like the Venetian Macao and Wynn Macau. Also from Las Vegas owner Las Vegas Sands Corp., are another dozen or so deluxe hotels in the immediate vicinity with recognizable names like Four Seasons, St. Regis, Raffles, Sheraton, among others each with its own Casino, boutiques and restaurants. Inter Continental, Mandarin Oriental and W plan to open their branch here as well.

Since Macau is just a ferry away from Hong Kong, and with a number of airlines that fly to Hong Kong at cheap rates, indeed a lot of tourist fleet to Macau to experience what Las Vegas has to offer. We will have a day tour in Macau on our trip to Hong Kong this coming November and the Venetian Macao is in our itinerary. Of course who would want to miss riding the authentic Venetian gondolas while a gondoliers serenade you? That would really be romantic. And we might try our luck at the casino too. They say as of 2006 Macau surpassed Las Vegas gambling revenue by 30% when it earned US $ 6.5 billion against the US $ 5 million Las Vegas earnings.

So if you really want to have a taste of Las Vegas, fly to Macau and for sure you will have lots of fun visiting the city, enjoying its night life and trying your luck in any of the Las Vegas casinos.
