Macau - The Vegas of China!!

sunny 23 °C
View To Asia and Beyond!! on AmyRossiter26's travel map.

Macau was the last of our stops around China (although technically it's own country) and what a way to finish!!
The city itself is nothing spectacular, although the old quarter is nice with its European style architecture - evidence of its past Portugese colonisation. There's also lots of high end shops and boutiques, which I loved wandering around (window shopping only of course!) There's some historical sites too - below photograph is of the remains of a catholic cathedral. Notice how there is the combination of European and oriental design.

However, the real highlight of Macau is of course the casinos!! Everything you would find in Vegas from The MGM to The Galaxy. We set our sights on The Venetian and it was truely amazing!! I've never been to Vegas, or a casino, so was really excited and it didn't disappoint - you can see why people never want to leave!

I didn't do any gambling myself (Ben had a small flutter!) but I just loved being in the midst of it all - and taking advantage of the free drinks! I may have had ten too many vodka cranberrys.

Macau was definitely a great end to our time in China, and a real highlight of the entire trip sofar for me. I would absolutely love to return - but not when I'm on my backpackers budget, and can really indulge!
