Macau, China can be called the Las Vegas of Asia. It is the place to be if you have gambling and fancy, trendy hotels on your mind. Macau has a lot of french influence. Streets, buildings and most of the signage in and around Macau are in french. Even though Macau has its very own international airport, the easiest way to get there without burning a hole in your pocket is by taking a fast boat from Hong Kong.

I stayed at the Best Western hotels which didn’t really meet my expectations. Don’t get me wrong, the hotel is nice and comfy but the staff doesn’t understand english. Best Western also boasts of an underground casino of its own, which is pretty cool…
