    Since opening the Sands Macau in 2004, Sheldon Adelson’s personal wealth has multiplied 14 times. I am sure he loves Macau. Although you didn’t care for the Cotai Strip, if you go back, maybe check out the Galaxy there and see what you think about it.

      Yeah we kept meaning to go into the Galaxy, that was the biggest one we didn’t make it in. Seemed very Vegas-esque.

    Sounds like I was there right after you were. I was in Zhuhai for business and given our hotel was 100 yards from the border we had to visit. :-) Neat place and had some great Portuguese food. But I wouldn’t make a special trip to visit.

    Pretty accurate write up. Of course gambling revenue is going to be higher in macau than in Vegas. In Macau there is virtually NOTHING else to do but gamble. Outside of pure gambling its a boring, ugly place. Unless drinking tea and playing Baccarat in a smoke infested casino is your thing I would pass.

    first time in macau tonight. been to vegas a dozen times and love it. i love the dance clubs, the people watching, having a drink in the street and walking the strip, the connecting hotel mazes, meeting people from all over the world, pool parties, the excitement everyone brings to that one big night out…

    macau had none of that, i felt like i was in a library or church bingo game. i was the only person with a smile on my face. if you come expecting vegas, you will be ‘sshhhh!-ed.’

    Macau in spite of being touted as the Las Vegas is nowhere near Las Vegas (literally and figuratively). But if you are interested in gambling and have tons of money to burn, then Macau is the place to go. Entertainment as far as westerners are used to are virtually non-existent but like all other places it has its seedy side. That said Macau is still interesting to visit but more on a side trip you’re on holiday or business in Zhuhai, Hong Kong and Guangdong.
