Macau: Last of my Venetian Series
One word: OPULENT. If you're not blinded by too much gold the moment you enter the lobby then the painted ceilings, the recreated Venetian buildings and canals, the facade and the mere size of the place will surely blow you away.
GOLD! GOLD! GOLD! Oh and it has a fountain too.
Painted ceilings everywhere
Facade at night
The familiar cacophony of loud chinese tour groups
Trivia: While wandering around the shops, I was approached three times by "friendly" ladies who wanted to have a "good time" (get it?). Either I looked like a high roller or some innocent boy who needed some.
