2017/11/03 2 Days around Macau Casinos
π 2017-11-03 00:00 in Trips

As a big contrast of visiting the original Macau and its old towns, we also went to visit the casinos. There are 2 casino areas, one on the north island, and the south island which has the bigger concentration of the two.

It's definitely vegas like, except with casinos that are even bigger (but with very bad signage, so it's hard to get around and find things in some of them).
We stayed at the studio city hotel:

We then crossed towards the Sands across the street to go see the monkey show, which was ok enough (sadly the dancing water show was shut down due to some issue:











Night pictures:




we climbed up the not quite closed campanile tower for views (lots of stairs)

The north island casinos are older, but some are still interesting. Some have a casino on both islands:

Food was great. The second morning, per recommendation, we tried the buffet breakfast in the Hyatt and it was quite good:





The 2nd evening, we went back to the Hyatt for their very famous and usually booked out buffer dinner. We managed to get a last minute cancellation, which was great:










After that dinner, we went to the ferry towards Hong Kong.
