It is incredible to think just how big Asia is as well as how many people it supports in terms of the world’s population. You go on a holiday of your life in Asia and still never see the entire continent as there are so many different types of people and cultures to enjoy on a visit. One thing that can change the tourism in Asia is the idea of going on a gambling holiday and visiting lots of casinos while you are there. It wasn’t long ago, when many of these countries actually legalised the gambling and so, the idea of gambling tourism is pretty new to the most of Asia.
One place in which gambling tourism is not a new idea is definitely Macau as it has been allowing gambling for more than 40 years now and in the past few years, it has become the world’s number one gambling tourism destination bringing in more money than the likes of Las Vegas or anywhere else in the world. One casino that has been around all this time is the Lisboa Casino as this casino has become incredibly famous in the gambling tourism world. It’s no surprise as well that the casino itself being so stacked full of different games for everybody to enjoy.
Other notable casinos in Macau are The Venetian, The Galaxy and The Sands Casino. Venetian Casino is the largest casino of the world and most famous in Macau. Galaxy Casino has many other attractions also like a crystal gallery, a fortune diamond show and a laser show, apart from the traditional gambling facility. The Sands has a giant chandelier that is over 36 meters long and nearly 8 meters wide. Hanging in the center of The Sands, the chandelier has nearly six thousand light bulbs and weighs more than 100,000 pounds.
There is another casino in Singapore, that is at the top of an incredible hotel comprised of three huge black towers those hold up a large Sky Bridge. From the Skye Bridge you can swim and look over the entire bay in the fine country of Singapore. The Marina Bay Sands resort has the world’s highest atrium casino with hundreds of different games that you can play while looking out over the beautiful view. Not only this but the hotel as well offers all the services you could ever wish for on holiday.
Sometimes, we may not be able to visit the casinos due to the time constraints. Although traditional casinos will always be popular, there are now more ways to enjoy casino games from wherever you are in the world on websites, where you can play games like black jack, poker, roulette etc.
So, if you are in Asia, try to visit the glittering casinos of Macau or Singapore, and even at the Poipet Border in Cambodia. If you are not able to reach them, enjoy the game of black jack and poker etc on the online world.
