Las Vegas gets all the buzz when it comes to casinos, but hey, Macao deserves some attention too!
We first arrived in Macao at night. Getting to town by ferry (coming from Hong Kong) you enjoy a great view of the skyline and buildings covered in luminous signs, reflecting their lights into the slightly wavy water.
Most people are attracted to Macao because of the casinos, like the old and iconic Casino Lisboa in today’s photo. But there’s way more to this place beyond gambling and flashy rooms: there’s history, there’s tradition and an incredible mix of Chinese and Portuguese heritage.
As this is a major touristic destination, there are plenty of hotels in Macao. Compare prices before you arrive, as booking on the spot may be difficult and certainly not as affordable. That way, you can save some cash for the slot machines!..
