If a flutter at Hong Kong’s Happy Valley is too tame for your gambling instincts, catch the ferry to Macau and enjoy some of its thirty-three casinos.

The Venetian and its gondola rides, is sister to the casino of the same name in Las Vegas, and the Macau version is the world’s largest casino. If the vice isn’t your thing the sheer spectacle of the huge ostentatious and brightly lit temples to risk are a sight in themselves.

The free shuttles between all the casinos make getting around them easy. Most of the casinos host visual shows and attractions, such as the water show at the Wynn, developed by the creators of the Vegas Bellagio fountains, or the spectacular shows and shopping at the ‘City of Dreams’.
