Big casino hotels appear in clusters in Macau.  There is a cluster at the Outer harbor (新口岸) anchored by the Grand Lisboa at one end, the Mandarin Oriental at the other, and with the Wynn, MGM Grand, L’Arc, and Star World scattered in the middle.  Another cluster of hotels is located at the Cotai strip where we were staying.

Bank of China, Hotel Lisboa and Grand Lisboa (picture above from left to right) – one can walk from the bank to the casinos easily – how convenient ! The fountain in front of the Wynn can be synchronized to music and performs much like the Bellagio does in Vegas.

Further down the street, looking back at the Grand Lisboa (picture below).

The Grand Lisboa looks a bit like a monstrous sprig of cauliflower during the day, but at night with the flashing and synchronized patterns of light, it looks spectacular. The reflection of Grand Emperor’s giant neon sign makes its even more dazzling.

The Grand Emperor neon sign is about 10 floors high.

Neon-lit casino hotel jungle.

The pawn shops located conveniently at the street corner are just as brightly lit by neon as the casinos.
