From the minute the Sands Resorts come into sight, you will realise the grandeur of this place. These guys left absolutely no stone unturned, hell, they decided to get themselves an actual Eiffel Tower because they thought it would be cool. And this is not just any other replica, it's a half scale replica of the actual, 525 ft. to be precise. And that was enough to set me googling and learn more about this exorbitant Asian hotel-casino which refuses to be original.
Macao has become the world's biggest gambling market, outgrowing Las Vegas. The main reason behind this is that it's the only place where the Chinese population can come to gamble and they come in big numbers. There is really no reason for Macao to be known as the 'Vegas of the East' anymore, it's time to flip that around. It is the most densely populated country in the world but you will never be able to guess that from the roads of this country, you have to walk into the casinos to find that out. Gambling accounts for almost 75 percent of the GDP of this nation and brings in close to 33 billion USD of revenue!
