Macau: Taipa

First day of our Macau trip, we landed on Taipa island, one of the three pieces of land that comprises Macau. Rain continued sparsely throughout our day, but we managed to stay relatively dry. Since we couldn’t check in until 2PM, we hopped onto the first shuttle we found, to City of Dreams. Walking past the wall-sized digital Mermaid, we had a nice buffet lunch inside the casino. A few of us wanted to bungee jump off Macau Tower, while the rest preferred to relax, explore, and gamble. Nima and I both tried our luck at the Blackjack table, to horrendous results.

Our second stop was The Venetian Hotel and Casino, whose lobby is astonishing.

A few ooo’s and ahh’s later, we taxi’ed to our hotel, and managed to cram 14 people in 2 rooms comfortably, with the exception of the four guys on one of the queen-sized beds. The afternoon tour around Macau’s old town, Portuguese-Chinese dinner, fireworks display, and pre-gaming in the hotel led up nicely to our late night clubbing adventure, which only needs one sentence to describe. Clubbing at Club D2 with Americans and Europeans was the highlight of my trip, while the hangover and massive pain the next day wasn’t.
