Macau: The Vegas of the East

Macau! The name conjours up images of luxurious hotels, opulent casinos and high end shopping. Well, it is all this and more. We visited Macau on our recent holiday and though we packed in as much as we could ,   with two young kids and just one and a half day on hand, there’s so much that we couldn’t do. Oh, there’s always a next time 😉
Here are just some pictures from Macau, mainly of the hotels, Sheraton (where we stayed), Venetian, Galaxy and City of Dreams. Each hotel is so huge and thankfully, all the hotels are connected by a complimentary shuttle service with buses running every 10-15 minutes. We never got the time to visit the heritage temple nor do the sky jump from Macau Tower……things that go on my “to-do-on-my-next-visit-to-Macau” list….
Conrad and Sheraton hotels all lit up. The tower with the gold and purple lighting on the right is part of  Venetian.

Whats the similarity between Hogwarts and Venetian? They both have got the “sky” indoors in a  manner of speaking..
