Macau is World Famous for Its Casinos

But when the sun sets, remember, Macau is famous for its casinos, which have now more than tripled the gross revenue of casinos in Las Vegas! At night the city bristles with energy. For stylish and serious high rollers, it's party time. Gambling has always been forbidden in Hong Kong, and so Macau has made a whole industry out of setting up huge casinos for Hong Kong visitors. There are many casinos in Macau now and more are being built by Las Vegas financiers. Some of them are within walking distance. From the ferry pier, there are free shuttle buses to virtually all the hotels and casinos in Macau. And taxis are also very cheap. But from the pier, you can also walk to the Sands Macau in 10 minutes. Next door is the Mandarin Oriental. Then if you cross the street, you'll find the Galaxy, then the Pharaoh (inside Landmark Hotel), and finally Hotel Lisboa. Try your hand with Lady Luck, but save some Patacas for dinner!
