I think of all casinos/ hotels, the Grand Lisboa is the most interesting & 'really must see' casino. This is situated in the older casino strip, right in the heart of the city.
This somewhat 'weird' structure, was created with one intention - to last and not fade with time. And it does well with that, gleaming all over come evening with its full lights display.
I find the display of lights quite spectacular and very unique - it keeps changing in colours and designs, with lots of casino designs from jackpots to the aces.
Not to be outdone, Wynn Macau has a musical fountain display outside its hotel (from 11am - 12am, every 15 minutes). This is a free musical show, where the fountain is synchronized with the lively & upbeat music.
That's not all - there's another 'show' in the hotel, where a golden dragon 'awakes' from a sphere with lots of smoke surrounding it. Though a rather short show, but I could sense the audience all glued to the star of the moment - that golden dragon. Some even threw coins to it - for good luck I'm sure.
Another 'must visit' hotel, which is popular with tourists is the Grand Emperor Hotel. The exterior of the hotel looks somewhat plain except for the big crown sign on the top.
However, this is the hotel known for its changing of its guards clad in the 'traditional' English guard attire. I missed that though. However, I managed to capture the golden horse cart in front of the hotel. This simply reminds me of Disneyland!
And finally another popular casino/ hotel one should visit is the Sands, with its ever changing lights on its top... Well apart from its lights, visit this for it's apparently the largest casino in Macau.
There are actually more hotels (& casinos) in Macau to see - especially with the very new ones at the Cotai Strip. And one of them, the Venetian is up next! :)
