Macau High Speed Ferry

Originally uploaded by JoeDuck

High speed Macau ferries take folks to Macau for Gambling. I think the trip is about 30 minutes from the peer in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbor to the island of Macau where massive gaming development is underway by Chinese and Las Vegas casino interests like Wynn, Venetian, and MGM.

But Macau is a lot more than gambling. The island offers a look back into the fascinating history of the Portuguese colony in the heart of the orient.

Here is the official Macau website:

Cher started in Las Vegas and she's still going strong with what is likely to be one of the most spectacular shows in Las Vegas History, starting at Caesar's Palace May 6th.

Here's the Official Cher Website:

Cher's career spans several decades during which she has soared to mega stardom after being something of a second fiddle to comidian and pretty bad singer Sonny Bono with whom she shared the "Sonny and Cher" TV show, a marriage, and daughter Chastity Bono.

Cher's amazing talents include brilliant movie performances and dozens of huge pop music hits.

Venetian Spring Specials

Check out the Venetian website for some great spring specials including suites at $139. The Venetian and her new twin tower, the Palazzo Las Vegas, offer one of the most elegate venues on the strip and at the special rates make for a great bargain this spring in Las Vegas.

Trump Tower is also now open though I don't have details yet on rates or specials there.

Hong Kong High Rollers

The Island of Macau has gone from a sleepy Portuguese colonial enclave to one of the world´s top gaming and resort casino destinations. Huge investment in the Cotai strip by American gaming empires Wynn, MGM, and the Venetian are almost certain to define this area very near Hong Kong´s bustling metropolis as the new Las Vegas of the Orient.

High speed hydrofoils take people from Hong Kong to Macau - I think every 30 minutes though reservations may be required for the trip.
