After a patience-exhausting line at the immigration, we took a free bus ride to the Venetian. The flashing lights of the slot machines, the sound of roulettes, the stern looks in the eyes of the gamblers and whispers of luck were wake up signs that we’re already in Macau.
Most of the big buildings in Macau were casinos – this is Las Vegasin Asia. The Venetian Macau was actually owned by Las Vegas Sands based from some research I made before going there. This building was the largest single structured hotel building in Asia and the 5th largest building in the world by area. The interiors were fantastic! The sky illusion on its high-ceilings makes you imagine and experience a walk in Portugal before sunset.
How to get there? You don’t have to worry about getting around Macau. These big casinos have free buses around to get customers. Once you get to the port/airport, check out the waiting areas for free bus rides. The Venetian bus is color blue with its big name on it. It will bring you directly to the Cotai Strip, where you can find the Venetian.
