Macau is a great place to go to for a day trip or a weekend getaway. In Old Macau you’ll find lots of history and Portuguese influence throughout the streets and alleyways. Once you’re finished being a tourist in Old Macau, you’ll probably head over to Taipa Macau (the other island just to the south that comprises Macau). Taipa is where you will find all the newer luxurious hotels, clubs, and high-end casinos. Though this area is much more modern than Old Macau, it still offers visitors a touch of historical charm when walking about.
When I asked friends and coworkers about The Venetian Macau, they all talked about how impressive it was in all regards. Under one roof, you’ll find just about everything you could ever imagine, all with an interesting contrast to each other. I was not at all prepared for just how massively massive and all encompassing this hotel/mall/casino/restaurant/Venice look-alike could be. Your trip wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t travel to Taipa to take a walk through or spend a night in (if you’re willing to throw some serious bills down) the Venetian Macau.
