We are staying on the Coloane island which is where the newer developments are. The City of Dreams is made up of 3 hotels, each with their own casino. There is the Hard Rock (4 star), the Hyatt (5 star) and Crown (6 star). The Venetian and Four seasons hotels are opposite and then further down is another massive casino called Galaxy. There is a Holiday Inn, Sheraton and Conrad also being built ready to open in a few months - this is a HUGE gambling Mecca for Asia. We tried to put $20 Macau in a pokie but it rejected it! That is the extent of our gambling:-)
It seems like a growing and fast developing place. They also have nice new anti-smoking laws which means you do not smell stale tobacco every where. They can smoke in the casinos but they have great air con which makes the smell much more subtle, unlike Las Vegas!

This morning we had a nice casual breakfast at the Paradise Coffee Cafe (their version of Starbucks, but much nicer coffee).
In a taxi off to play Macau Golf and Country club. Weather was cool and overcast. No rain so we did not get wet but did wear our wet weather gear as it felt misty or foggy.

We had lunch at the club afterwards and then caught a taxi back to the hotel for a shower and change. Food is very cheap over here. Have resisted shopping for anything else yet, will wait for Hong Kong and China.
Back to room and started to pack everything up. We are playing golf at Caesars Golf Course tomorrow, then getting on the turbojet to go to Hong Kong. I have enjoyed Macau and it was definitely worth a short visit but looking forward to the buzz of HK again.
