1. Cotai Strip
What is it? This stretch of land is what makes Macau the gambling capital of the world. The strip’s casino resorts have all the luxury trappings you’d expect (glamorous restaurants and clubs) and some that you wouldn’t (an indoor canal complete with gondolas).
Why go? You can’t go to Macau without venturing into one of the casinos. Wander around the gargantuan Venetian, which is practically a self-contained city, or visit the Hollywood-themed Studio City for a ride on the lucky figure-8 Ferris Wheel.
