Opposite direction - City of Dreams and the newly built crossing which took only 3 or 4 days for it to be completed.

The MGM Macau. Not the busiest property in Macau but IMHO it's certainly one of the most attractive.

 
 
MGM Macau facade.

 
 
MGM Macau check-in.

 
 
Attractive drummer girls performing outside the Starworld Casino.

Bamboo scaffolding held together with plastic ties. How do they do it ?

Part of Macau Businesse's interview with Dr. Stanley Ho in which he discusses VIP commision rates.

 
 
Presentation to the winners of the Macau Gold Cup.
Dr. Ho as Chairman of the Macau Jockey Club was on hand to do the honours.

Not quite so glamorous. Casino shuttle busses waiting at the Border Gate.

 
 
Bars on windows in Taipa.
The bars I believe aren't for security but so washing (and kids) don't end up at street level.

 
 
The Ruins of St. Pauls which must still be the most photographed structure in Macau.

 
 
View over Macau from the Museum of Macau at the Monte Fort. Ponte 16 casino in the background

 
 
Amusing sign in a tunnel linking the Grand Lisboa with the parking garage.

The transport home... €270 return to Heathrow and I certainly hope I can get the same price again in 2010 :)
