Casino Hopping @ Macau

That was exactly what we did in Macau, casino hopping! We rushed to Fuyong Terminal in Shenzhen to catch the 11.30am ferry to Macau which unfortunately has been cancelled! However, we managed to catch the 1.30pm ferry (a one hour and ten minutes ferry ride) to Macau and while waiting, had lunch at a small Chinese restaurant just outside the terminal. This is a side trip, merely for pleasure as we have no business in Macau. The ride itself was uneventful but once we reached Macau, it's a different story! We stayed at the Casa Real Hotel as it is cheaper @ HK$700.00 per night (B$125.00) and it's also within walking distance from the Macau ferry terminal. The rooms have been renovated and there's even a small casino in the lobby. Internet access in the room is also free (very convenient for people like us). In one single night (29 November 2010), we played (noticed I used the word "played" not "gambled" as we were placing small bets just for the fun of it) in four casinos and visited the "City of Dreams", the "Venetian Macau", the "MGM Grand", the "Caesar's Casino" and the "Wynn Casino". Macau is spectacular at night with all the neon lights splashing across the Macau landscape. I'll be back as there's still a lot of casinos I haven't visited due to the lack of time. Next time I will stay for two nights so that I can go for sightseeing as well!
