Macau and HK 2009

Went to Macau via Air Asia. Macau has changed tremendously compared 2 years ago. Stay at Venetian Macau Hotel. The hotel is too huge and in order to go to your room, you really need to walk at least 10-15 mins.

Venetian Casino

Venetian Shopping MallHow to move around in Macau?
If you are staying at Venetian, then u can take the shuttle bus to Taipa Ferry Terminal to take shuttle bus to other casino which is near the town area e.g. Wynn, Sands, MGM and etc.
Alternative, you can take shuttle bus to Macau Ferry Terminal and then take shuttle bus to other areas or you can also charter a van cum driver cum tour guide to move around in Macau.
If u stay at town area, therefore is convenient for u to take turbo jet at macau ferry terminal to HK, every half an hour ferry. If u want to take 24 hrs ferry then u take the Cotai Strip Ferry at Taipa Terminal which is just 5 mins away fronm Venetian.

Attractions at Wynn
Every half an hour you can see the dragon rising from the egg at Wynn. Do not miss it.
Outside Wynn you can see the musical fountain, do check out the time. Transport info
