It’s Really Big…

by brian on December 8, 2008

What you ask?

The Venetian in Macau is the world’s largest casino and the world’s third largest building – period.

I paid about $642US for two nights at the Venetian, taxes and fees included. To put that in perspective I could have

Stayed 20 days in Tokyo, Japan at $31US per night

Stayed 25 days in Hilo, Hawaii at $25US per night

Stayed 91 days in Siem Reap, Cambodia at $7US per night

Stayed 148 days in Krabi, Thailand at $4.31US per night

So what does $642 get you? Glad you asked…

I did not get a hotel room. I got a suite. In fact everyone gets a suite. There are 3000 suites at the Venetian.

The view of the front entrance from inside the suite
 Its Really Big...The bathroom could fit 10 people in it. Not like you would want to fit 10 people in a bathroom, but I’m just saying…if you had to…
 Its Really Big...Clear glass shower
 Its Really Big...Sunken living room

 Its Really Big...

View of the whole suite

 Its Really Big...That’s the suite. The resort has over 300 stores and the compliment of casino floor games, slot machines and numerous restaurants. It also have multiple canals, hence the name the Venetian. So people can take gondola rides INSIDE the mall, like they are in Venice, Italy.

 Its Really Big...
 Its Really Big...I would not be surprised if there is a show on the Discovery or Travel Channel about this place. It is that impressive.

It made for a great and memorable birthday weekend. Glad I came. Money well spent and money I had because I have been living small since I started the trip.

You really appreciate a place like the Venetian when you’ve been sharing rooms for the past 6 weeks. Makes for a nice change…but now back to the budget lifestyle!

You weren’t kidding about it being a copy of the Venetian in Vegas. Looks oddly familiar. I can’t wait to go walk through it in Macau when I go. Don’t think i’ll afford a room there though. 148 days in Krabi sounds more tempting :-D

Just thought I would confirm your suspicions about whether there is a show on Discovery about the place…There is! It was on a few weeks ago and it mentioned how the Venetian Macau takes more money than the entire Vegas Strip combined!!! Pretty impressive!

@Living the Dream
Krabi is great, but for 148 days? I dunno about that one… :)

@Michael
I knew it. That place is so over the top it deserves its own TV special. Great fun this past weekend. Glad I hooked up with you guys.
